PIKIT, North Cotabato (August 6) –– Three persons were killed when they were ambushed by unidentified gunmen in Sitio Dangiya, Barangay Bulol, Pikit, North Cotabato Sunday, August 5, at 3:30 p.m.

Police Captain Mautin P. Pangandigan, Officer-in-Charge of the Pikit municipal police station identified the fatalities as Maan Pananggilan, 32 years old; Unday Abdulkadir, 29, and Mohamed Ahad 28, all residents of Barangay Rajahmuda, also of this town.

Pangandigan said the incident was triggered by “rido” (family feud) involving Muslim clans, which happened to be members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

“Initial investigation revealed that the incident was brought about by a long-standing feud between the victims and the attackers,” he said.

Pangandigan said the victims were aboard a black Kawasaki Bajaj 100 motorcycle with no plate number and on their way home to Barangay Rajahmuda, also of Pikit, when they were fired upon by four perpetrators. They died instantaneously. –Taher G. Solaiman/NewsLine.ph
