A suspected Abu Sayyaf kidnapper who reportedly works as a fish trader was arrested during law enforcement operations in Barangay Sangali last Thursday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report identified the suspect as Wahab Salapuddin y Sahirin aka Abu Dam-dam, of legal age and a resident of Barangay Sangali.

Salapuddin is facing several counts of Kidnapping and Serious Illegal Detention in connection with the kidnapping of workers in Tairan, Lantawan, Basilan in June 2001.

The suspect was arrested by elements of Zamboanga City Police Station 3 and Intelligence operatives.

Salapuddin was taken to the Zamboanga City Police Office for tactical interrogation prior to his turn over to the proper court.

Meanwhile, DZT got wind of information that a big number of Abu Sayyaf suspects had been arrested in Barangay Sangali.  (Dan Toribio)
