Suganob,the survivor said hat they are not asking "for anything",just to withdraw "forces away from Lanao del Sur and Marawi City, and to stop the airstrikes, your air attacks, and to stop the canyon."

"Mr. President, they do not ask for anything. They just ask that you leave this place peacefully. Do not give so much attack. The city in my background is ruined like this,"he added.

Suganob said he would kneel before the President if it meant saving the 240 "prisoners of war" and to appease the fear of their families and friends.
