A team from the Bangsamoro Board of Investments (BBOI) was caught in a firefight along the highway in Linek, Datu Odin Sinsuat (DOS), Maguindanao del Norte on Wednesday.

BBOI Chairperson Mohamad Omar Pasigan said that the BBOI team was on their way to conduct a monitoring visit of Registered Business Enterprises (RBEs) in Kusiong, Maguindanao del Norte when the incident occurred.

Initial reports indicated that the BBOI team’s vehicle got caught in the crossfire between unidentified armed groups who ambushed a car traveling ahead of them.

“We are grateful that our team members are safe,” said Pasigan.

The official said that they have already coordinated with local authorities to secure the area and ensure the safety of the team.

“The Bangsamoro Board of Investments condemns any act of violence that puts the lives of civilians at risk. The BBOI urges all parties involved to uphold peace and security in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM)”, Pasigan added.
