11 Abu Sayyaf members, including two subleaders, surrendered.

Eleven Abu Sayyaf members, including two subleaders, surrendered Tuesday night to Joint Task Forces Tawi-tawi and Basilan, Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff Gen. Eduardo Año said Wednesday.

From January 1 to April 12, 2017, a total of 16 Abu Sayyaf members have already surrendered to the Joint Task Forces of the Western Mindanao Command.

“Just yesterday at around 6 p.m. in Sangasanga, Tawi tawi, 11 notorious members of the Abu Sayyaf group including two of their subleaders along with seven firearms surrendered to Joint Task Force led by Brig Gen. Custodio Parcon Jr and we expect to see more surrendering in the coming days,” said Año during the press conference.

The subleaders were identified as Berong Sariol, alias Boy Master, who operated in Sulu and later transferred to Tawi tawi; and Ben Saudi Dambong Sariol, alsias Boy Pangit, 39, resident of Panglima Sugala, Tawi tawi, also operating there.

The subleaders have been arrested in May 2009 in Tawi tawi but they were released in Zamboanga City due to the absence of a warrant of arrest.
