DEATH OF ABDULGANI ABDUSALAM @ WANING

THE DIRECTORATE FOR INTEGRATED OPERATIONS IN WESTERN MINDANAO (DIPO-WM) OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED THAT ABDULGANI ABDUSALAM @ WANING HAS DIED LAST NOV 6, 2011 AFTER HAVING SUCCUMBED TO GUNSHOT WOUND ON BOTH THIGHS. HE WAS BURIED AT ABOUT 6PM ON NOVEMBER 7, 2011 IN MAUBUH ISLAND, BRGY PANUBIGAN, ZBO CITY. HIS DEATH HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY NO LESS THAN THE IMAM WHO OFFICIATED THE MUSLIM RELIGIOUS RITUAL ON THE BODY OF WANING ABDUSALAM.

LAST NOVEMBER 13, 2011 DIPOWM WAS ABLE TO CONTACT AND CONVINCE THE IMAM TO MAKE AN OFFICIAL DECLARATION OF WANING’s DEATH. IN HIS AFFIDAVIT, HE AVERRED THAT LAST NOVEMBER 6, WANING’s WIFE SOUGHT HIS SERVICES FOR THE INTERNMENT OF HIS NOTORIOUS KIDNAPPER-HUSBAND AND BROUGHT HIM TO SITIO KALANG, BRGY SANGALI, ZBO CITY WHERE WANING’s BODY LIES.

PRIOR TO THIS, LAST OCTOBER 15, 2011, COMBINED ELEMENTS OF THE PNP AND AFP SERVED THE WARRANTS OF ARREST ON THE WANTED KIDNAPPERS LED BY WANING ABDUSALAM IN BRGY LABATAN, PAYAO, ZAMBO SIBUGAY BUT THE LATTER RESISTED BY FIRING UPON THE GOV’T FORCES. FOUR (4) SOLDIERS WERE WOUNDED WHILE UNDETERMINED IN THE LAWLESS ELEMENTS SIDE. THIS ORDINARY SERVICE OF WARRANTS OF ARREST HAS EVOLVED INTO A FULL-BLOWN OPERATION BY THE PNP AND THE AFP USING AIR AND NAVAL ASSETS TO PLUSH WANING ABDUSALAM AND HIS FOLLOWERS OUT OF THEIR HEAVILY FORTIFIED BANKERS AT SITIO TALAIB, PAYAO, ZAMBO SIBUGAY.

WHEN THE HEAVILY FORTIFIED CAMP WAS OVERRAN LAST OCTOBER 27, 2011, NOT ONE WAS ARRESTED OR DEAD BODY WAS RECOVERED BUT ONLY TRACES OF BLOOD WERE FOUND IN MANY PLACES INDICATING THAT SOME OF THE LAWLESS ELEMENTS WHO MANAGED TO ESCAPE WERE WOUNDED. A 50 CALIBER MACHINE GUN AMONG OTHERS WERE SEIZED FROM THE SAID CAMP.

THE WHEREABOUTS OF WANING ABDUSALAM BECAME A MYSTERY UNTIL LAST NOVEMBER 02 WHEN AN INFO WAS RECEIVED THAT WANING WAS WOUNDED IN THE PAYAO OFFENSIVE AND WAS EVACUATED TO SOMEWHERE IN BRGY LAMISAHAN, ZAMBO CITY. THEN ANOTHER INFO WAS RECEIVED THAT WANING DIED ON NOVEMBER 6, 2011.
