Some residents tip them off to be the rapists and who thereafter killed  a 15-year old girl named as Sittie Naifah Hadji Faisal Canapia on Friday.

The police officers believe the original intention of the suspects was just to steal the house of the victim, but then they were caught in the act by the teenage girl who came home earlier than her mother. 

The suspects took turns to rape the girl, and torched her to cover-up the crime.

This infuriated the residents.  Many of whom waited outside the police precinct to be able to lay hand on the suspects.

They demanded to punish the suspects by public hanging.

"Patayin.  Sa relihiyon naman ay patayin.  Batas ng Diyos, gusto namin ay batas ng Diyos!"   [Kill.  Our religion mandates the killing of the criminal.  God's law, we want God's law be followed.]

The news also spread over the social media that the four suspects shall be hung at the Banggolo Plaza and the Marawi City Mayor Sultan Fahad Salic shall witness.  But Salic denied this.

Firing Squad Sa Mga Rapist
Mga rapist na nakatakdang i-firing squad sa Biyernes. Kapag matuloy ang pag-firing squad sa harap mismo ng publiko, kauna-unahang pagkakataon umano itong mangyari sa Marogong, Lanao del Sur.

"Hindi ako papayag na ganito ang mangyayari.  Nandun na sa city jail ang mga suspek no.  Hindi pwedeng mangyari yun, dahil may batas tayo,"  [I cannot allow this to happen.  The suspects are already inside the City Jail.  That cannot be allowed to happen, because we have the law], Salic said.

 By:  Divina Morgia Suson

MARAWI City (18 Aug 2015) - The police force this City is on full alert in securing the four (4) detained suspects accused of rape and murder of a 15-year old lass Friday.

This happened after the family of the victim announced that they will no longer file any complaint against the four suspects but instead demanded they be torched alive until they die.

The police identified the suspects as Jabbar Rikta Macacua, Elias Kamote Pimping, Salman Udag Sambitory, and Jalil Alit Sani.

The four are accused of raping the victim inside her house in Barangay East Basak, in Marawi City, before she was killed by hanging, her neck tied with a wire, and thereafter torched together with the house.

The mother and sister of the victim were at that time purchasing some household needs at the public market.  

The victim's father is an overseas worker in Saudi Arabia.

Marawi City Mayor Fahad Salic confirmed that the family and relatives of the victim requested that the suspects be handed over to them so that they could torch them to death, but the four were already under the custody of the police, and due process must be followed.

The Human Rights Commission is also keeping watch after photos of the mangled suspects appeared on Facebook.

In an interview with Sun.Star Superbalita, Pimping revealed that they were punched all over their body by the residents when they were picked-up from their residence last Saturday, which resulted in the various bruises and wounds on their face and whole body.

Police Senior Superintendent Agustin Tello, PNP Provincial Director of Lanao del Sur, reported that no formal complaint has yet been filed against the suspects, hence, they shall be forced to release the suspects, otherwise the police shall be charged with arbitrary detention.

ROGONGON, Iligan City (10 Aug 2015) - The Higaunon tribe from Bayug Iligan ancestral domain and the coastal area have pushed for a larger budget for the calendar year 2016 amounting to 3.2-million pesos, which is about 450 per cent increase compared to the 2015 budget.

This proposed budget was an offshoot of the workshop few weeks ago at the second floor of Frosty Bites, National Highway, Brgy. Tubod, Iligan City, initiated by the Committee on Indigenous People of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Iligan City led by City Councilor Emmanuel "Manny" Salibay who chaired such body.

Desmon Manalo, Chief of Staff of City Councilor Salibay reported that some 100 delegates from the hinterland barangays of Rogongon, Panoroganan, Kalilangan, Mainit and some coastal barangays in the City participated in the said workshop.

The proposed budget includes:  (1) preservation and strengthening of the indigenous people's ancestral domain and its indigenous political structure, amounting to P1,350,000.00; (2) strengthening the developmental framework of Bayug-Iligan ancestral domain, P300,000.00; (3) preservation, research and documentation of the language, indigenous knowledge systems and practices, including the dressing system, P500,000.00.

The other budget items include: (4) indigenous people's capability building, P300,000.00; (5) advocacy on indigenous people's rights, P300,000.00; (6) forest protection, P200,000.00; (7) livelihood, P150,000.00; and (8) health, P150,000.00.

Abel Moya, program officer of the resource-based Conflict and Peace Building Training Program of the Mindanao Peace-Building Institute Foundation, Incorporated based in Davao City, facilitated the workshop.

Councilor Salibay lauded the overwhelming turn-out of the Higaunon tribe participants who spontaneously laid their 2016 proposed budget.

"Truly the essence of bottoms-up budgeting is exemplified here, and I look forward to the other sectors replicating the same, drawing their respective proposed budget, which I shall forcefully defend in the City Council," Salibay stressed.

National Anti-Poverty Commissioner Regina "Nanette" Antequisa lauded the process which she reveals is first of the kind in the City of Iligan.  Bottoms-up budgeting is the thrust of commission.

"t's nice if the different committees of the Iligan City Council will do the same process, such as women, agriculture, and others, in order to formulate a meaningful and a truly people-oriented budget for 2016," Commissioner Antequisa said.

Iligan City acting mayor Ruderic Marzo on his part committed to implement whatever is proposed and eventually approved by the City Council.

"My role is to implement whatever is proposed here and approved by the City Council," Marzo emphasized.

Datu Diamla Rolando D. So-ong, the head claimant of Bayug-Iligan ancestral domain, who is currently the IP's mandatory representative to the City Council expressed his gratitude for having been allowed to undergo strategic budget planning process for the Indigenous People's budget for 2016.

"It is the first time that we, the tribe, are asked to lay down the budget for the tribe for the forthcoming calendar year," Datu Diamla declared.

City Councilors Marlene Young and Frederic Siao expressed their appreciation for having witnessed the dynamic processed, and promised, together with Councilor Salibay, to defend the budget proposals when deliberated at the SP.

It may be recalled that there is still a pending executive budget for 2015 amounting to P700,000.00 for deliberation and approval.  The budget for the IPMR was set aside until after the assumption into office of the IP mandatory representative in the Council.
