A village chief escaped unscathed, while his companion was wounded in an ambush perpetrated by still unidentified gunmen in Datu Saudi Ampatuan (DSA), Maguindanao Tuesday.

Police said Barangay Sambulawan chairman Abdulwariz Zailon and his companion, Bayan Salik, were on board a Toyota Revo vehicle (KCH 414) when waylaid along Barangay Dapiawan, Datu Saudi Ampatuan, around 1 p.m.

“Zailon escaped the volley of gunfire but Salik was hit in the hand,” said Corporal Sam Lloyd Untong, DSA police investigator-on-case.

Responding cops brought the wounded Salik to the Maguindanao Provincial Hospital in Shariff Aguak town following the incident.

Police said both Salik and Zailon, who is also the president of the Association of Barangay Captains in Datu Salibo town, claimed to have no known enemies.

Untong said police are still in pursuit of the suspects in the interiors of DSA town as of posting time.
