Soldiers foiled Sunday an attempt by three persons to smuggle a grenade and an improvised explosive device into the town proper of Banga, South Cotabato. 

Col. Jemuel Siason, director of the South Cotabato provincial police, identified the suspects as Merlyn Bansil Guisan, 42, Ronald Olin Bansil, 27, and the 30-year-old Andy Gelodin Meno, now locked in a detention facility of the Banga municipal police. 

They were intercepted by personnel of the Army’s 5th Special Forces Battalion in a checkpoint at Lambukay Area in Barangay Lamba in Banga, while on a motorcycle together en route to somewhere in the municipality.
