Iligan City Bureau Chief
Iligan City — Residents of this city caught in the crossfire in the ongoing clash between armed groups and the military were advised to wait it out until rescue comes or until the crisis is over.
Evelyn Bello, a mother of a worker trapped in Marawi, said her son – along with five others – are still inside the besieged city. As of this writing, Bello, still has no contact with her son.
Bello said her son is a construction painter and was doing a painting job in Marawi when the firefight ensued. She had sought help from the authorities here and was advised that they should not go out as there might be snipers and or traps along the way.
Iligan presently hosts refugees who had fled Marawi City.
