COTABATO CITY (MindaNews /03 May) – Abdulbasit Usman, one of the country’s most wanted terrorists was killed 11:50 a.m. Sunday in a chance encounter with troops of Moro Islamic Liberation Front’s (MILF) 118th Base Command under a Commander Barok in Barangay Muti, Guindulungan, Maguindanao.

Maguindanao police director Sr. Supt. Nickson Muksan confirmed the report based on the validation with Muti barangay captain Gayak Midtimbang, Guindulungan Mayor Midpantao Midtimbang and Toks Upam of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front’s Coordinating Committee on the Cessation of Hostilities.

The MILF had earlier said it would help government in going after Usman who eluded arrest by the elite commandos of the 84th Special Action Company of the Phlilippine National Police – Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) early morning of January 25 in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.

The SAF’s operation was not coordinated with the provincial or regional police, the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, and the ceasefire mechanisms of the government-MILF peace panels.

Usman’s ally, Malaysian terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan was killed in that law enforcement action in a village identified to be under the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF), a group that broke away from the MILF in early 2010.

The SAF’s operation was not coordinated with the provincial or regional police, the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, and the ceasefire mechanisms of the government-MILF peace panels.
The 84th Company’s supposed blocking force engaged in a battle with members of the MILF, later with the BIFF, as well as Private Armed Groups (PAGs).

Aside from Marwan, a total of 66 persons were killed that morning: 44 from the SAF, 17 from the MILF and five civilians.

Mayor Midtimbang said Usman and his men are not welcome in his town.

The United States’ National Counterterrorism Center in its website described Usman as “a Filipino citizen, a bomb-making expert with links to the Abu Sayyaf and the Jemaah Islamiyah.

A million dollar (44.5 million pesos) reward has been allocated for information leading to his arrest. (Ferdinand B. Cabrera with a report from Carolyn O. Arguillas/MindaNews)
