2015 Kidnapping and BeheadingEdit

More than 10 armed men abducted at dawn Monday, May 4, the chairman of Aliguay, one of Dapitan's two island barangays, and two members of the Philippine Coast Guard. The suspects turned to these 3 men after failing to see foreign tourists in what could have been a plan for kidnapping-for-ransom. The military found a beheaded body of a man believed to be Buligao. It was spotted along an intersection in Barangay Laum Maimbung in Sulu's Maimbung town.
