Fr. Teresito “Chito” Suganob
Father Soganub was taken hostage along with about a dozen of his parishioners after hundreds of armed extremists flying the black flag of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) stormed and occupied large parts of Marawi, the Islamic capital of the mainly Catholic Philippines, on May 23.
Father Teresito "Chito" Soganub was found abandoned with another hostage near a mosque early Sunday, one of three militant strongholds that have fallen to government forces over the past several days.
Father Soganub had been held captive since militants attacked his Saint Mary's Parish during the siege of Marawi on May 23.
The priest had appeared in a video released by the militants pleading for his life and asking the military to cease their aerial bombardments. They surfaced on social media where he sought the help of President Rodrigo Duterte to halt the offensive against the militants. Photos showing him, a young man and a woman slumped against a wall had also circulated on the Internet.
Several hostages were reportedly last seen there, according to Galvez.
Col. Edgard Arevalo, military public affairs chief, said in a separate statement that the Bato Mosque, considered the second grand one, was retaken at 5 p.m. on Saturday, after five hours of fighting between state forces and terrorists.
Some women were forced to marry militants.
A Catholic priest and a civilian held hostage by local IS militants escaped from their captors and recovered by troops from the besieged city of Marawi in southern Philippines where fierce fighting is nearing its fifth month. "(But) we can not give you details as of now lest we imperil the lives not only of our soldiers but more so that of the hostages", Arevalo said.
