It has been reported that two out of the four suspects in the twin explosions that happened at a cathedral in Jolo last Sunday already surrendered to clear their names.
KAMI learned from ABS-CBN News that the two individuals caught on surveillance moments before the explosions happened have turned themselves in, purportedly to say that they weren't behind the attack.
According to the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG), the two suspects surrendered at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday. One of the suspects was believed to be a brother of bandit leader Surakah Ingog.
The police added that the suspect admitted that it was him on the CCTV footage. However, he insisted that he is innocent of the accusation against him and that he had nothing to do with the attack. He added that he was just going to the market.
In a previous report by KAMI, the police released to the public the CCTV footage retrieved which showed suspicious individuals before and after the twin explosions happened.
KAMI also reported earlier that the authorities conducted a raid to the house of alias “Kamah” which is also one of the suspects. However, Kamah was able to escape from the scene and his alleged relative was killed amid the raid.
