He was nabbed at a police checkpoint in Barangay Labu-Labu in Shariff Aguak town in Maguindanao at about 3 p.m.

After his arrest, the suspect was turned over to the Sultan Kudarat provincial police office.

“This should send a clear message to criminals or wanted persons hiding in the region; you can run but you can never hide from the Philippine National Police. We are determined as ever to go after criminals who have been eluding arrests for years,” Ugale said.
