Colonel Noly Samarita commander of the 602nd Brigade based in Carmen, Cotabato, on Wednesday, said that the group of Moks Masgal alias Commander Madrox are being chased by Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF).

“There are 746 Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) mostly from 118th MILF Base Command helping us in tracking these enemy armed groups hiding in Liguasan Marsh." Samarita said.



The group of Madrox was failed to arrest last August 14 by the government troops. The movements of troops were detected and was ambushed, resulting to the death of three soldiers. Madrox and his group escape to the marshland of Liguasan at the border of Cotabato and Maguindanao provinces.

“The troops came back today bigtime, this time with MILF troopers and we were successful to arrest one of the suspects of the ambush, the son of Madrox, early morning today,” Samarita added.
