MANILA — Police have arrested Minhati Madrais, the Indonesian wife of terrorist leader Omar Maute, authorities confirmed Sunday afternoon.
Iligan City Police director Senior Supt. Leony Roy Ga said Madrais, alias "Baby," was arrested at their house in Steele Markers Subdivison in Barangay Tubod, Iligan City.
She, along with their six children, are now in police custody.
Ga said they will be coordinating with the region's social welfare department to take care of the children.
Police were able to recover materials used to create improvised explosive devices, and an expired Indonesian passport.
Omar Maute was killed in a military operation in war-torn Marawi City last October 16.
He was killed along with Abu Sayyaf Group leader Isnilon Hapilon, supposed to be the 'emir' of global terror network ISIS in Southeast Asia.
Following the death of the two terrorist leaders, President Rodrigo Duterte declared Marawi City liberated from the clutches of ISIS-inspired groups. (PNA)
