She is also a contact of the following Western Mindanao Regional Committee (WMRPC) officers: Ma. Luz Ranan, a.k.a.

“Our troops, together with our partners from the PNP continuously conduct operations against the communist terrorists to prevent them from instigating hostilities in the communities,” said Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, commander of the Western Mindanao Command.

“With the weakened leadership, I now call on the members of the WMRPC to lay down their arms, return to the folds of the law, and be one with us in our peace building mechanisms,” Lt. Gen. Sobejana added.

Aguhob is placed under the custody of Misamis Occidental Provincial Police Office for proper disposition.

“I attribute this achievement to the strong collaboration among officers and men of the Joint Task Force ZamPeLan and the Philippine National Police. My snappy salute to all of them. With your selfless service, our people will certainly live peacefully and happily,” Lt. Gen. Sobejana concluded.
