The explosive immediately went off and people scampered for safety around 3:00 pm at the town’s covered court.
Lt. Colonel John Paul Baldomar, 6th Infantry Division spokesperson said that initial investigation revealed that a grenade was lobbed while people are focused on the game.
The police official said a phone-triggered device may have been used by the terrorist group, who want to sow terror in Maguindanao.
Meanwhile, investigators are still trying to identify the names of the suspects at press time. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the cowardly attack perpetrated by lawless elements. – PNA
