Iligan City — The former mayor of Zamboanga del Sur town of Dumingag, who survived an ambush attempt is currently recuperating in a hospital here in the city.

However, reporters who did some trips to several hospitals here could not locate the the former town mayor. Hosptial personnel were tight-lipped as to the identities of their patients inside their private rooms.

Lanao Norte provincial information Salman Saad identified the victim as Nacianceno Pacalioga, 57, former mayor of Dumingag. He had also served as vice mayor of the town.

Pacalioga was on his way to Dumingag at past 8 am Wednesday, from this city.

Upon arriving at Barangay Esperanza, Bacolod, Lanao del Norte, Pacalioga alighted from his vehicle to relieve himself in a grassy area beside the road. Two unidentified suspects riding a motorcycle suddenly shot Pacalioga.

Pacalioga was rushed to a hospital here.

Reporters following the incident saw three rooms in a hospital which were heavily guarded with armed men but it could not be ascertained which room Pacalioga was in.
