The suspect was identified as Police Staff Sergeant Imran Jilah, 43, a resident of Kasalamatan Village, Brgy. San Raymundo, Jolo, Sulu, assigned to the 3rd Maneuver Platoon of the 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company (2PMFC).

According to Police Regional Office Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (PRO-BAR) Regional Director BGEN Eden Ugale, PCOL Bawayan conducted an inspection at the quarantine control point in Brgy. Asturias, Jolo.

The police official allegedly scolded and kicked the on-duty policemen taking shelter at the checkpoint, which led to a heated argument.

PCOL Bawayan was taken to the Maguindanao Integrated Provincial Hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
