Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) Intelligence operatives have recovered the skeletal remains of a man at Sitio Nangkal, Barangay Baluno last Wednesday.

Sr. Insp. Shellamie Chang, Zamboanga City Police Information Officer, said that the skeletal remains belong to a certain Salip Airil, married and a resident of Aquino Drive, Barangay Baliwasan.

It was reported that an unidentified informant gave police details about Airil’s body being buried in the area.

Investigation showed that the victim was brought to the area by still unidentified suspects who told him that they were doing test fire on their guns.

When the group arrived in the area, Airil was shot and hacked by his companions.

The suspects then proceeded to bury Airil.

Police are still conducting an investigation on the motive behind the incident.  (Dan Toribio)
