Gov says ambushers only want money

By Anthony S. Allada

Sultan Kudarat Governor Datu Suharto “Teng” Mangudadatu has theorized that the five men who ambushed their convoy on their way home to Isulan last Sunday afternoon in Datu Unsay town in Maguindanao were only after money.

“It may not be politically-motivated. The ambushers could be robbers or extortionists,” Mangudadatu told the Mindanao Newsmakers Online.

Mangudadatu accompanied his father, Datu Pax S. Mangudadatu, in filing the latter’s Certificate of Candidacy for governor in Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) on Sunday morning in Cotabato City.

Reports said six were wounded in the ambush and were brought to the Sultan Kudarat Provincial Hospital.

Mangudadatu said the victims, all residents of Barangay Kakal, Ampatuan were taken cared of by attending physicians.

“We already provided assistance to the victims,” he said.
