Leonida Guao, also known by her aliases Ligaya, and Laya was arrested by a combined team of soldiers and policemen about 2:50 p.m. Friday (Feb.2) in Barangay Bading in Butuan City through a warrant of arrest issued by Regional Trial Court Branch 7 of Bayugan, Agusan del Sur..
Guao, who faces a murder charge is now under custody of the police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in Caraga.
