An Intelligence officer was killed during an ambush by unidentified gunmen in Sitio Kapayawan, Barangay Baguindan, Tipo-Tipo Basilan last Monday.

Basilan police identified the fatality as Sgt. Moh. Alam, 46 years old, married and a resident of Zamboanga Sibugay province.

Alam was also identified as an Intelligence officer of the Philippine Army’s 18th Infantry Battalion based in Tipo- Tipo.

Investigation showed that unidentified suspects shot Alam while the latter was on his way to Barangay Baguindan to gather information.

The victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds on different parts of his body which killed him on the spot.

Authorities suspect that the incident may have something to do with his identity being uncovered by lawless elements.

Police however are continuing their investigation on the incident. (Richard Falcatan)
