TACURONG CITY  – Unidentified gunmen ambushed and killed Monday a municipal election officer of Maguindanao del Sur in an ambush while he was heading for home in Lambayong, Sultan Kudarat, police said.

Captain Jetro Doligas, municipal police chief of Lambayong, said Haviv Macabangen Maindan, municipal election officer of Sultan sa Barongis, Maguindanao del Sur, was driving his silver gray Toyota Fortuner when ambushed in Barangay Pingguiaman, Lambayong by still unidentified gunmen riding tandem on a motorbike at about 2 p.m.
