Azurin said the entrapment that resulted in the arrest of Tucalo and Samad was a joint initiative of the Army’s 103rd Infantry Brigade and the 82nd Infantry Battalion, personnel from the Marawi City and Lanao del Sur police offices and the Bangsamoro regional police office.

He said the suspects shall be prosecuted for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
