Policemen recovered an 81mm and 60 mm mortar shells at Purok 8, Recodo last Tuesday afternoon.

The PNP’s Zamboanga City Public Safety Company had received a report from residents that a group of persons were spotted along the Recodo shore.

Operatives swooped down on the place after residents said that the presence of the suspicious persons has caused panic among them. When policemen arrived at the place the suspicious persons were nowhere to be found.

A hot pursuit operation was mounted by the police resulting in the recovery of the two explosives hidden beneath a pile of woods few meters away from the house where the government forces had engaged in a shootout with drug syndicate members the other day during an operation against the group of Margani Samla alias Binladen.

The explosives were turned to the PNP bomb squad in Camp Batalla at RT Lim Boulevard, this city. – Dan Toribio Jr.
