On 24 May 2021, a sighting of the presence of a Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) in Sitio Lakpan, Brgy. Kabasalan, Pikit, North Cotabato prompted the government troops to conduct an airstrike at the armed group’s base camp in the said area. In fear of an impending warfare, some residents fled the area resulting to displacement of families and individuals.
