Five individuals were apprehended by Coast Guard Station Cagayan De Oro (CGS CDO) and are now being held at Headquarters Coast Guard District Northern Mindanao (CGDNM) after they provided fake identification cards trying to travel from Cagayan de Oro to Manila via 2Go vessel MV Pope John Paul II on evening of June 19.
The five presented “fake identification cards while entering at Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) Passenger Terminal Gate 1 in Cagayan de Oro,” the Philippine Coast Guard said. They will be charged for using fake documents.
They were identified as Alinor Dimapora, 27 years old from Saguiaran, Marawi City, Lanao Del Sur; Abubacar M Ibrahim, 33 years old from Bundiangkay, Maging, Lanao Del Sur; Abdel Cali Hamid, 26 years old from Pindulunan in Maging; and Ameroding D Unte, 21 years old and Bashit G Unti, 22 years old, both residents of Delausan Poblacion, Maging, Lanao Del Sur.
They presented Systems Technology Institute (STI) ID, Duterte ID, Mindanao State University (MSU) ID and Postal ID which were found to be falsified.
“When asked about the ID, Alinor Dimapora cannot answer simple questions and later, they discovered that he could not read and write,” PCG said. Further investigation is being conducted.
