MANILA, Philippines — A suspected member of the ISIS-inspired Maute group was arrested in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City Wednesday night.

Armed with six warrants of arrest, operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) and the Joint Task Force of the Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines arrested suspect Jomar Labay alias Jumar Ibrahim.


Police said Labay is one of the suspects behind the beheading of two sawmill workers and kidnapping of four others in Butig, Lanao del Sur in April 2016.

His arrest warrants for kidnapping and serious illegal detention and murder were all issued by a court in Malabang, Lanao del Sur, according to a police report on Thursday.


Supt. Arnold Thomas Ibay, chief of the CIDG Regional Field Unit in Metro Manila, said the arrested suspect has a bounty amounting to P600,000 placed on his head. /jpv
