CAMP SANG-AN, Pulacan, Labangan, ZDS – The two Communist NPA Terrorists (CNT) leaders who were arrested in a joint checkpoint operation by AFP and PNP troops in Brgy Dableston, Sultan Naga Dimaporo, Lanao del Norte, yesterday, have undergone inquest proceeding before the Lanao, del Norte prosecutor’s office today, December 2, 2019.
Accordingly, Christopher Cañete y Ruiz, known as Alias Glock and Virjon Virtudazo y Sagaysay also known as alias Thunder revealed the identities of other members of their group and some are allegedly hiding in plain sight.
They also revealed identities of their supporters, their locations and future plans. But details of their revelations are withheld for now pending further verification and investigation.
According to Brig. Gen. Bagnus Gaerlan Jr, the 1st Infantry Division and Joint Task Force Zampelan (Zamboanga Peninsula and Lanao Provinces) acting commander, the current successful arrest and previous armed engagement with NPAs and other threat groups were widely due to the AFP’s newly acquired imaging technology which will be further enhanced in the coming year.
He further invited local NPA members, which he described as the exploited ones, to lay down their arms and return to the folds of our law through our E-CLIP program.
