From InterAksyon (Mar 19): Young kidnap gang leader nabbed in Zamboanga Sibugay
The alleged leader of a kidnap gang, all of 22 years old, was arrested in a raid on his hideout in Payao, Zamboanga Sibugay early this week, police said.
Provincial police director Senior Superintendent Jose Gucela said Muin Biang, alias “Muntaser,” did not resist arrest when collared in Sitio Lumaraw Island in Barangay San Roque.
Biang was served a warrant for his arrest issued by Judge Josefino P. Bael of the Imelda Regional Trial Court, Branch 31.
Gucela described the suspect as “a notorious criminal listed as the Top 3 Most wanted in Payao and who is affiliated to the other criminal group and kidnap for ransom groups operating in some areas of Zamboanga Sibugay.”
Among these gangs, he said, are the Itting Abbas Group, that of Hussien Madi, alias “Commander Rambo/Commander Cobra/Long Hair,” and the Reming Sabtal group.
