Brig. Gen. Alan Arrojado, Joint Task Group Sulu commander, on Friday reiterated his directive to all his field units to adopt protective measures against planned attacks from “enemy forces” in the province.
Arrojado issued the order after Abu Sayyaf Brigands riding tandem on a motorcycle shot and wounded a soldier on Friday at a detachment in Barangay Latih, Patikul, Sulu.
“You are again directed to remind all subordinates not to be over too complacent or confident anytime anywhere here in Sulu to prevent unnecessary deaths and injuries as the enemy are always planning to conduct violent actions as what happened in Latih Detachment a while ago,” Arrojado told his field officers.
Arrojado identified the wounded soldier as PFC Muntassir Kalukasa of the Bravo Company under the Army’s 35th Infantry Battalion assigned in Latih Detachment.
He said Kalukasa was walking back to the detachment coming from a nearby store around 12:30 p.m. Friday in Barangay Latih, Patikul, when the suspects shot him.
He said the suspects sped towards Barangay Anuling of the same town after the incident.
He said Kalukasa, who was hit in his foot, was taken tohttp://www.pna.gov.ph/index.php?idn=2&sid=&nid=2&rid=832018
