MPASUGONG, BUKIDNON. May 22 – After eight (8) distressful days, the 23 year old man who was fooled into joining the New People’s Army (NPA) was finally reunited with his parents after the NPA was pressured to release him on 20 May 2020 in Brgy Paradise, Cabanglasan, Bukidnon.

The son revealed that he was deceived by the NPA that is why he walked along with them. But in fact, the NPA used him as their servant, as he packed up and brought all the heavy stuffs of the NPA terrorists as they ran away from the government troops in the mountainous area in Bukidnon.

He lamented “Kakapoy ug kagutom ang nasinatian nako sa tanan adlaw kauban ang NPA. (I only experienced tiredness and extreme hunger in all the days when I was with the NPA.). He begged and cried because he can no longer bear the loneliness and sadness. He was then notified that his parents could not sleep and kept looking for him knowing that he joined the terrorist armed group.

Alias Mag, his mother, said “Mapasalamaton ako nga nakauli na ang akong anak sa amoang panimalay. Wala siya’y kaugmaon kauban ang mga terroristang NPA. Ug usab ako mapasalamaton sa mga kasundalohan kinsa nag tabang sa amoa para ipakaylap ang mga balita aron sa pagbalik sa among anak.”(I am glad that my son finally returned home. He has no future with the NPA. I am also thankful to the Army who helped us in spreading the news to bring back our son.)

“Ako nalipay na ang anak na lalaki sa mag uuma naka hunahuna na wala siyay kaugmaon uban ang NPA. Ako mapasalamaton sa atong mga kauban ug katawhan sa pagpakaylap sa impormasyon para maibalik ug mabuo ang ilang pamilya” said Lt Col Edgardo V Talaroc Jr, Commanding Officer of 8th Infantry Battalion. (I am glad that the farmer’s son realized that he does not have any future with the NPA. I thank all the partners who disseminated the information to reunite their family.)

Last May 17, 2020, his parents asked help from the Philippine Army and the Local Government to look for their son.
