Talitay, Maguindanao Vice Mayor Abdul Wahab Sabal has been placed under the custody of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (AIDG) in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
This comes, after he was arrested on Thursday at Cotabato Airport in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao as he arrived from Manila.
Three of his companions were also nabbed.
Police based the arrest on a warrant of arrest.
Last August 7, 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte had tagged Sabal and his elder brother, Talitay Mayor Montasir Sabal, as among the alleged ‘narco-politicians’ in the country.
