Another NPA rebel surrenders
ROXAS CITY, Capiz, Sept. 7 (PIA) — Another member of the New People’s – Army Communist Terrorist Group (NPA – CTG) voluntarily surrendered to President Roxas Municipal Police Station (PRMPS) in Pres. Roxas, Capiz Sept. 5.
The 25-year old surrenderer also known as “Nonoy” and “Ka Alan” brought with him one hand grenade when he yielded to police authorities to live a normal and peaceful life.
PRMPS Officer-In-Charge Capt. Rachelle Garnica said that the surrender of “Ka Alan” was through the effort of the Regional Intelligence Unit (RIU) 6 under the supervision of Maj. Delfin Tan and the help of 1st Capiz Provincial Mobile Force Company (1st CPMFC) Intelligence Officer Lt. Jay Lagan, PRMPS and Pres. Roxas mayor Receliste Escolin.
“The exhausted NPA rebel decided to surrender after he realized that he was deceived by the terrorist group and already tired of living a miserable life in the mountain,” Garnica noted in a PNP News Release posted in the Presroxas Ps Facebook account.
She added that the surrender simply shows that the anti-insurgency campaign of local authorities is doing well in the province.
Alias “Nonoy,” who is now in the RIU6 custody, claimed that he was a member of Eastern Front Nonito Aguirre Command under Ka Pedic, Ka Reagan and Romeo Ganggoso.
Last March, the Capiz Police Provincial Office (CPPO) has also presented before local tri-media practitioners alias “Art” who was then a rebel red fighter but surrendered and returned to the folds of law as a result of the intensified and comprehensive conduct of intelligence and information operation by the police operatives in coordination with the 61st Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army and the Barangay Intelligence Networks.
Alias “Art” said to the media that he surrendered because he could no longer bear the hardship, starvation, lack of security and hopelessness in the mountains.
The surrender of Ka Art and Ka Alan took place as the government is implementing the Whole-of-Nation approach to End Local Communist Armed
Conflict (ELCAC) in order to attain inclusive and sustainable peace and development.
The surrenderers will be enrolled to the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) so they can start the soonest possible time a new and better life. (JBG/AAL/PIA Capiz)
