THE DAVAO City police has formed a group to investigate the ambush last Monday on Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Assemblyman Sidik S. Amiril. “We will get into the bottom of this,” City Police Director Alexander C. Tagum told the media. Based on the police report, Mr. Amiril and four others were inside a vehicle in a residential area when a gunman in another vehicle waylaid and shot at them, killing one of the passengers. Mr. Tagum said investigators are looking into whether the incident is related to the raid on Mr. Amiril’s house in Cotabato City last year. The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), armed with a search warrant, raided the house of Mr. Amiril, but he and his wife were not home at that time. The couple were the subjects of the raid. The PDEA team found shabu (crystal meth), firearms, and several automated teller machine cards. — Carmelito Q. Francisco
