Lanao del Sur Vice Gov. Mamintal Adiong Jr. on Saturday urged organizers of the so-called “Occupy Marawi” to think twice before they force their way into the battle-scarred city as the plan would put people’s lives in danger.
As a young and newly designated officer in the Armed Forces, 2nd Lt. Rex Busilan had faced the Abu Sayyaf forces under Radhdullan Sahiron. But the battle in Marawi where he and his men from the 15th Scout Ranger “Mandirigma” company faced the Islamic State-linked Maute Group was nothing like the encounters in Sulu, he said.
