Dureza gave no other details but said he was in a hospital in Cagayan de Oro where Mutilan was brought.
Dureza described Mutilan as “a giant in our peace development advocacy in Mindanao.”
Mutilan was head of the Ulama League of the Philippines and since the establishment of the BUC in November 1996, had been its co-convenor.
“Am flying his body to Marawi by Huey," Dureza said.
Mutilan's remains will be buried this afternoon, in accordance with Muslim rites. More details later. (MindaNews)
