Two powerful bombs rocked Lamitan City, Basilan on Thursday night.

The first explosion took place at past 9 p.m. near the residence of Vice Mayor Arleigh Eisma, who is running for  mayor in the May 13 election.

The second explosion occurred in Barangay Colonia few minutes later.

Authorities said the two bomb blasts caused no injury to anyone, but it has damaged the vehicle of Eisma.

Bomb experts said the perpetrators used improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the bomb attacks.

Lawmen retrieved some vital residues for laboratory test to determine the actual type of explosive used by the bombers.

Authorities were looking into different angles including politics on the two explosions. – Dan Toribio Jr.
