Suspected Priest killer nabbed

A certain Salvador Akili, aka 'seven colors', was arrested by Tawi-Tawi Police authorities after he was pinpointed by informants as one of the killers of Fr. Rey Roda. Fr. Roda was killed by his abductors last January 15 after he refused to go with the group suspected to be members of the dreaded Abu Sayyaf terrorist and kidnap-for-ransom group.

The authorities are hopeful that the arrest of Akili is a breakthrough as this may lead to the arrest of his companions.
