THE prompt recovery of an improvised explosive device (IED) has foiled a bombing attempt of a resort in the province of Zamboanga Sibugay, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

Zamboanga Peninsula police spokesman Chief Inspector Ariel Huesca said the IED was discovered near the gate of Inland Resort around 9:30 a.m., Tuesday in Poblacion village, Buug municipality.

Huesca said the security guard, who discovered the IED, transferred the bomb to the garbage area of the resort and notified everyone to stay away.


The security guard reported his finding to village councilman Roberto Danios, who in turn informed the police.

Responding policemen cordoned the place, paving the way for the combined police and military explosive ordnance demolition (EOD) personnel to conduct disruption procedure, Huesca said.

He added that investigation continues to establish the motive and unmask the suspect.

The police, in coordination with the military, also strengthened security measures in the municipality of Buug, he said. (Bong Garcia)
