An improvised explosive device went off just meters away from the home of Basilan Governor Jum Jainudin Akbar Wednesday night.

The governor was not hurt as she was at the Provincial Capitol at the time of the attack.

Her son, who is running for Isabela mayor, was also unhurt.

Authorities believe the explosion is linked to politics.
