“I haven’t heard from him for a long time. The last time I heard that he was selling fruit cocktail in Palu city, then he worked in a repair workshop,” she said on Wednesday.
Bojes’ body was buried in his hometown in Bolano Village, Parigi Moutong regency in Central Sulawesi.

Meanwhile, no decision has been made whether Aziz will be buried in West Nusa Tenggara province or Palu city as the police have not heard from his family.

Senior Commissioner Didik Supranoto, spokesman for the Central Sulawesi Police, said that besides Bojes and Azis, 13 other suspected terrorists are allegedly connected to the MIT terror group.

However, Didik said he had not received further information. He did not elaborate on how long the two suspected terrorists have been involved in the MIT and their roles in the terror group.
