His cohort identified as Morsid Ahod, escaped towards the coastal area after he jumped from their motorized pump boat following a firefight between the operating units and the suspects. The operation was made by virtue of warrant of arrest for murder docketed under Criminal Case Number I-6080 against Morsid Ahod. Recovered from the crime scene were a loaded cal .38 revolver loaded and a blue motorized pump boat used by the suspects. The cadaver of Samuhong was later turned-over to his immediate families for burial in accordance with Islamic rites.
