THE Umbra Kato-led Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) owns a purported improvised explosive device (IED) factory in Maguindanao.

Professor Miriam Coronel Ferrer, Philippine government (GPH) chief peace negotiator, relayed this information to senatorsTuesday during the panel investigation on the bloody January 25 Mamasapano, Maguindanao clash.

It can be recalled that Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano earlier accused secessionist group Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) of controlling a weapons-manufacturing facility in the town of General Salipada Pendatun.

“Gun-making factory? No. The full report is not yet available. It will be submitted to us formally. But there was an IED-making facility owned by the BIFF in this particular sitio in Maguindanao,” Ferrer revealed.

A Islamist militant group, the BIFF splintered from the MILF in 2008. Kato, it’s founder and leader, is consider the country’s most wanted man.

The GPH considers the MILF as its partner in the Mindanao peace process, which has soured following the Special Action Force (SAF)-launched Mamasapano raid that resulted to the killing of 44 of the elite police officers, allegedly by the MILF and BIFF. (Randy K. Ortega)
