A suspected member of the Abu Sayyaf Group was arrested Thursday afternoon in Zamboanga City.
Authorities identified the suspect as Nasir Daud.
Police said an informant tipped them on the presence of the suspect who went to the Hall of Justice to get a clearance.
Daud is facing charges of kidnapping and serious illegal detention with ransom. A warrant for his arrest was issued by the Zamboanga City Regional Trial Court Branch 16 in June 2004.
He is one of the suspects in the kidnapping of a businessman in Barangay Pasonanca in January 2004.
Daud was brought to Zamboanga City Police Station 11 for proper documentation.
