Tanggawohn was deeply concerned with the escape of the inmates, describing the incident as “a serious breach of security that undermines the efforts of law enforcement agencies to maintain peace and order in our communities.”

He urged the public to remain vigilant and report to the authorities any sightings or information regarding the whereabouts of the fugitives.

“The safety and security of our communities are our top priorities, and we are dedicated to taking all necessary steps to ensure justice is served,” he said.

“We assure the public that the Police Regional Office BAR is fully committed to working tirelessly to bring the escaped fugitives back to prison and prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future,” Tanggawohn said.

Rearrested on Saturday morning was Alex Sanday who was facing charges for peddling illegal drugs.


Those who remained at large are Sadam Diamla, Panginima Alo, Allan Gumaga, and Ruben Dadigan Jr.
