MILF washes hands off Kidapawan jail attack


COTABATO CITY -- The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) washes hands off the attack on the Kidapawan City Jail last Sunday morning.
MILF Civil Military Affairs Von Alhaq denied the allegations that members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (Biaf) attacked the jail around 9:30 a.m. Sunday to release one of the detainees, Datucan Samad, alias Kumander Lastikman.
It can be recalled that the MILF was also involved in the attack of the Cotabato Provincial Jail in 2009 to release their comrades who are considered to be high-risk detainees.
Lastikman is believed to be behind the deaths of 30 civilians in Pikit, North Cotabato last year.
His group is also behind the highway robbery and hold-up incidents in the Cotabato-Davao Highway.
Lastikman is facing charges of extortion, kidnapping, carnapping, robbery hold-up, multiple murder, multiple frustrated murder, arson, among others.
However, there are rumors that a breakaway group of the MILF is behind the attack to free Lastikman.
The Kidapawan City Jail and Cotabato Provincial Jail have strengthened its security measures since Sunday.
