Gov. Jim Salliman condemned the killing of the election officer of Al-Barka town on Tuesday, July 19.

Salliman asked the Basilan Provincial Police Office to fuse ranks with the Isabela City police force to hasten efforts of identifying the people behind the brutal murder of Ruayna Sayyadi.

The governor, chairperson of the Basilan Peace and Order Council, said his administration will flex its influence in helping the police identify the culprits.

Brig. Gen. Arthur Cabalona, director of the Police Regional Office-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (PRO-BAR), said he has directed police units in Basilan to exhaust all means of putting closure to the incident. 

Sayyadi was attacked by still unidentified men right in the premises of their satellite office in Barangay Doña Ramona in Isabela City in Basilan.

She died instantly from gunshot wounds.
