In his statement, Col Licudine said, “We thank Governor Matba for her invaluable support to the Philippine Army.

“The Whole of Nation Approach has been the game changer in uniting all stakeholders and different agencies to counter the insurgency problem. The communist insurgency will soon end as long as we continue our work to bring development and address issues in the conflict affected areas and geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas. We reiterate our call to the remaining CPP-NPA Terrorist to avail the E-CLIP and choose to live peacefully with their families. The Army will continue to be relentless in combatting insurgency to bring peace and development in the communities.

The 23 FRs are composed of four (4) FRs who voluntarily surrendered to 29IB, thirteen (13) FRs from 23IB, and six (6) from the PNP.
