Assemblyman Zia Alonto Adiong, spokesman of the provincial capitol since the Marawi siege, said on a block-time Maranao radio hour here this afternoon that a regular average of five stray bullets is hitting the provincial capitol every week.

He said most of the bullets came from a 50-caliber machine-gun.

Adiong said three days ago, a 50-caliber bullet hit Capitol's lobby which sent people in the area scrambled for safety. 

The provincial capitol accommodates hundreds of evacuees of the Marawi siege that started last May 23, or almost two months ago.

Processing of safe conduct passes is also done at the provincial capitol.

Meanwhile, a Facebook enthusiast said, "More STRAYBULLETS are coming our way only now that the MG (Maute Group) is shrinking (reducing in numbers)... and now that we plan to march towards Our City, Our Home."

Meanwhile, authorities said last night on a TV report that more than 200 MGs are still fighting against the military holed up in certain places in the city.
