PNP Chief Police General Archie Gamboa announced the hand over of Abu Sayyaf leader Anduljihad “Edang” Susukan to the Philippine National Police at the residence of Chairman Nur Misuari at Yñigue Subdivision Maa, Davao City Thursday evening.
“We thank Chairman Nur Misuari for facilitating the negotiation between the PNP, headed by PCol Kirby John Kraft, Davao City Police Director, and Edang Susukan,” Gamboa said.
Police officers initiated the negotiation after finding out that Susukan was brought to Davao City to seek medical attention.
Gamboa added, “The PNP immediately advised Mayor Inday Sara Duterte who assured us her full cooperation and assistance, to ensure the peaceful handover and orderly transfer of custody to appropriate authorities.”
The warrants of arrest served were 23 cases of Murder, 10 for Kidnapping and Serious Illegal Detention, and 6 for Frustrated Murder.
Susukan will undergo a medical check up at the Camp Quintin Merecido Hospital. (PR)
