IPIL, Zamboanga del Sur – A former rebel who surrendered to 53rd Infantry Battalion guided the troops to a Communist NPA Terrorist (CNT) arms cache in Barangay Pange, Siayan, Zamboanga del Norte, Tuesday morning, July 21, 2020.

The troops were conducting follow-up operations and discovered one M653 baby armalite, one M16 and one AK47 assault rifles buried in Sitio Sapa Bagol of the same barangay.

The follow-up operations was based on the information of the newly surrendered personality of Main Regional Guerilla Unit (MRGU), Western Regional Party Committee (WMRPC), whose identity cannot yet be disclosed to the public for security reasons.

In a statement, 53rd IB Commanding Officer, Lt. Col. Jo-ar Herrera said that the success of this follow-up operations is a proof that the integrity of the armed group is disgruntled at its core.

“If it’s not the community, it’s the Former Rebels who disclose the locations of their firearms. This is a proof that the FRs are tired of NPA atrocities and also want this insurgency to end,” said Lt. Col. Herrera.

On the same day, 22 Former Rebels from Zamboanga del Norte received PhP 20,000.00 financial assistance during the Provincial Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) Committee meeting.

Meanwhile, Col. Leonel Nicolas, Commander, 102nd Infantry Brigade urge the remaining CNT members to abandon the armed struggle.

“Many among your ranks are already seeing the light after being imprisoned in the dark for many years of deception and lies by the Communist Terrorist Groups,” Col. Nicolas said.

“Lay down your arms and allow us to help you return to your families,” Col. Nicolas added.

Maj. Gen. Generoso “Gene” Ponio, Commander, 1st Infantry Division commended the troops for this accomplishment.

“Our troops on the ground has continuously been delivering significant accomplishments in degrading the armed capability of the CNTs in the our area of responsibility through series of encounter or by facilitating the surrender of former armed CNTs,” Maj. Gen. Ponio said.

As of this posting, the FR is now being processed for enrollment to E-CLIP which includes the firearm remuneration.
