CLAVERIA, Misamis Oriental – Two New People’s Army (NPA) surrendered to the government authorities thru the negotiation effort of 58th Infantry (Dimalulupig) Battalion (IB) and Salay Municipal Police Station bringing along One AK47 rifle last June 30, 2020.

The surrenderees were identified as certain alias Santos, a member of Platoon Cherry Mobile, Guerilla Front (GF) Huawei, Subregional Committee 1 (SRC1), who seeks help and hand over his issued AK47 rifle. Alias Minda, the wife of alias Santos and also a member of the same unit sought help from the Barangay Local Government Unit of Salay.

The surrender of the two was the result of the relentless Focused Military Operations done by the 58IB to degrade the remaining force of threat groups who continued to spoil peace in Misamis Oriental. They turned themselves to authorities after reportedly “getting tired” of life on-the-run with the Communist New People’s Army (NPA).

Alias Santos said that they decided to leave the communist rebel movement after many of their fellow NPA had surrendered to the government while others went to hiding because of the hardship experienced in the mountains. He also said that he could no longer see any reason to continue to fight for the communist.

Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Ricky L Canatoy Acting Commanding Officer, 58 IB said, “We are happy that you have decided to abandon the armed struggle. We will continue to do our mandated task to ensure that we bring the government closer to the people thru the Whole of the Nation approach. We are hoping that the remaining members of the NPA will see the opportunity that the government is offering. However, the Army will not hesitate and is always ready to use its force against threat groups who will continue to go against the government,” Lt. Col. Canatoy said.

Moreover, the two will be enrolled in the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) of the government, as they will be receiving immediate cash and livelihood assistance as well as remuneration for their surrendered firearms.
