Brigadier General Maurito L Licudine, Commander of the 402nd Brigade, in his statement said, “I commend the 29IB troopers for the decisive engagement against the CNTs at Jabonga. We’ve been tracking them for weeks now as they transfer from one place to another to evade our troops. We shall not let them have a breathing space as they continuously refuse to heed our call to surrender, leave the life of violence and finally embrace the path of peace together with their families”.

“We call on to all remaining CNTs to lay down their arms and stop their futile armed struggle that only brought pain and suffering to our people. We will even intensify our operations against you. You can run but you can not hide for long. Avail the government’s offer for you to go back on your normal lives, the E-CLIP, and be with your families this Christmas”, BGen Licudine added.
