Ustadz Habier Malik have killed some of the MNLF rebels who wanted to surrender to government troops.

This was attested by three rebels who surrendered to soldiers during a clearing operation yesterday.

This developed as three more rebels yielded to security forces after being pressured by the continuous pursuit and clearing operations on the 19th day of the standoff yesterday.

According to the three MNLFs, they and other rebels were about to approach military troops and ready to make gesture to surrender when Malik himself opened fire on them killing some of their companions.

Luckily, the three MNLFs escaped death and were immediately fetched by the soldiers to be brought to the city police office for investigation.

Yakan MNLF rebels from Basilan who were captured earlier also attested that two of their companions were shot and killed by Malik after they tried to escape and surrender to the soldiers.

Reports disclosed that not all of Malik’s men wanted to fight as they were deceived by him  to join a so-called peace march.

Meanwhile, two other bodies were recovered by troops at the interior of Sitio Buggok, Sta. Catalina yesterday morning. – Dan Toribio Jr.
