An 80-year old grandma died of heart attack as security forces clashed with members of bandit Abu Sayyaf group in the province of Bohol on Tuesday evening.
Jimmylito Logrono, 23, claimed his lola died as soldiers and the police pounded the concrete house the bandits seized when they arrived in Bohol from Mindanao early this week, GMA News stringer Leo Udtohan reported Wednesday.
“Yung lola ko namatay dahil sagubat (giyera). Kung wala yung [bakbakan] hindi sana namatay ang lola ko...nangdahil sa Abu Sayyaf namatay ang lola ko,” Udtohan quoted Logrono as saying.
Over 3,000 residents from Barangays Napo, Canlenti, Banahao, Liloan Sur, and Liloan Norte in Inabanga town were evacuated as clashes between Abu Sayyaf group members and government forces raged on Tuesday, resulting in the deaths of three soldiers, one policeman, and six bandits.
Since Wednesday noon, some evacuees have returned to their homes even without clearance from the police and the military.
Udtohan said most of the families have opted to stay in school buildings that were converted into evacuation centers.
Authorities have not issued a clearance for the return of evacuees as five bandits are still believed atlarge in Bohol. — GMA News
