ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — An Abu Sayyaf bandit was killed in an alleged shootout with government troopers in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi on Tuesday. 

Rear Admiral Rene Medina, Naval Forces Western Mindanao, identified the fatality as Shaifful Julaili.

 Medina said Julaili refused to pull over at a checkpoint in Barangay Lapid-Lapid and shot it out with police and military personnel.

Julaili was tagged in kidnappings in the waters off Tawi-Tawi and Sabah. 

Meanwhile, authorities are checking reports that Abu Sayyaf sub-leader Idang Susukan, who was among those wounded in a military offensive in Barangay Kabbon Takas, Patikul last week, has died.
