Last March, three suspected terrorists in Sibolga City, North Sumatra were captured by the police’s anti-terror squad Densus 88. Former national police chief Tito Karnavian stated, “All three are Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) networks affiliated with the ISIS. But the actions of the suspected terrorists have nothing to do with the election.”
He made the statement based on the police investigation result before the terror raid that triggered explosions. He explained that the perpetrator had affiliations with radical group ISIS. Thus, the network would continue to carry out terrorism as it had indoctrinated its followers regardless of the election.
Karnavian adds, the arrest of the three suspected terrorists in Sibolga was the development of the arrest of a terrorist suspect in Lampung, Husain Alkas Abu Hamzah. Based on Hamzah’ claim, Densus 88 had caught two suspects in different places.
