Silongan used to work for the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) where Abdulgapor is a top official.

Retired MSU Prof. Rufa Cagoco-Guiam said Abdulgapor taught at the Department of Islamic Studies under the College of Social Sciences and Humanities in MSU’s campus in General Santos City.

He was a member of the Board of Directors of the BDA and, concurrently, a member of the Local Monitoring Team (LMT) of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

BDA is the MILF’s development arm, while the LMT is part of the ceasefire mechanism of the Bangsamoro peace process.

Former MSU-General Santos chancellor Moner Bajunaid mourned the death of Abdulgapor, whom he described as “a nice guy.”
