A military report identified the victim as Faizal Hambali, married and a resident of Sitio Palar, Barangay Gandasuli, Patikul.

Hambali was reportedly released by his captors at 7 p.m.  last Saturday at Sitio Daang Puti Barangay Bangkal, Patikul Municipality Sulu.

The victim’s relatives brought him to the Joint Task Force Sulu Headquarters for coordination regarding his release.

The victim then underwent custodial debriefing.
