ZAMBOANGA CITY — The police is conducting an in-depth probe to identify and arrest the suspects behind the improvised bomb explosion that injured three people in Zamboanga Sibugay.
Police Regional Office-9 (PRO-9) identified the victims as Melyn Sumaylo, 50; and her two children, Leo, 17; and Levie Jane, 19. They sustained minor injuries.
The police said the incident happened at around 11:30 p.m. Monday in Barangay Sto. Niño, Alicia, Zamboanga Sibugay.
PO3 Raul Agsaluna, case investigator, on Wednesday said investigation showed the victims were in deep slumber when they were awakened by a loud explosion.
Agsaluna said the victims were injured from debris as the explosion partially damaged their house.
He said post-blast investigation showed the explosion was caused by an improvised explosive device (IED).
He said all possible motives are being considered in a bid to unmask the suspects, who fled after setting off the IED. PNA
