protagonists in the clash that erupted in Sitio Balebet, Barangay Bulol, Pikit,
North Cotabato.

Edralin
said the heavily armed group of Commander Nasser and equally armed group of
Commander Kuwata Dimanalao clash over personal grudge.

Both
side traded bullets and mortars.

Edralin
said investigation showed that two groups have been locked in long standing
feud, known as rido,” triggered the armed skirmishes.

A
missing huge amount of money where members of both sides were allegedly
involved was among the root cause of misunderstanding that led to infighting.

We
meet with local ceasefire monitoring units, they are mediating and we are cordinating with the local government and MILF ceasefire committee to defuse the tension,”
Edralin told Radyo Bida Kidapawan.
