CAMP GERONA, Minoyan, Negros Occidental – An active member of the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) voluntarily surrendered to the 94th Infantry Battalion in Brgy. Tambo, Ayungon, Negros Oriental morning of January 19, 2022, due to Communists Terrorist Groups (CTGs) false promises, hunger, and exhaustion.

Samson Ones Tillo @Dener was a Squad Lead of the Central Negros Front 2. Prior to his surrender, he was actively involved in propaganda and recruitment in the hinterlands of Binalbagan, Himamaylan, and Kabankalan City in Negros Occidental. In almost a decade with the CTG, he was involved in 10 armed engagements with the government troops. He surrendered with him a cal.45 pistol with magazine and ammo. The joint efforts of the 94th Infantry Battalion under Lieutenant Colonel Angelo Guzman, Commanding Officer facilitated Tillo’s surrender.

The NPA local guerrilla leader revealed that the continuous hardships, hunger, and false promises of NPA leaders have prompted him to surrender. He also revealed the alleged continuous exploitation of the NPA among the masses in the outlying sitios of Central and Southern Negros.

@Dener is now undergoing custodial and stress debriefing prior to his enrollment to the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) in order to receive immediate welfare assistance, livelihood assistance, and incentives for the surrendered firearm.

Meanwhile, Brigadier General Inocencio Pasaporte, 303rd Brigade Commander lauded the effort of 94IB and the brave decision of @Dener to go back to the folds of law and said, “The surrender of Samson Ones Tillo adds up to the increasing number of New People’s Army and Militia ng Bayan who finally woke up from the deceptions of the CPP-NPA-NDF and decided to come out for good and avail the amnesty program of the government.

Your Army in Negros is encouraging other members of the Communists CPP-NPA Terrorists to abandon the armed struggle, it is high time to abandon the communist terrorist organization and avail the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) program being offered by our government,” BGen Pasaporte added.
