3 NPA rebels in Bukidnon surrender

IMPASUGONG, Bukidnon–Three members of the New People’s Army (NPA) surrendered to the 8th Infantry “Dependable” Battalion (8IB), the military said.

In a press statement, the military identified the rebel returnees as @Bahoy, Political Guide, Squad (Sqd) 1; @ Neil, Team Leader, Team Baking, Sqd 2 both of Platoon (Pltn) 3; and @Angelo, Company Medic all under Headquarters Force (HQF) Neo, North Central Mindanao Regional Command (NCMRC).  

Surrenderees revealed that they can no longer endure extreme hunger and their unceasing operations, the statement said.

It said that @Angelo expressed his grievances to the struggling armed group.

He said: “Wala’y suplay sa pagkaon, mas kapoy nga operasyon ang hinungdan nga ako nagluya ug ni desisyon nga mosurender.” (No food supplies, tiresome and weary operation made me weak and decide to surrender.)

“Klaro nga timailhan nga ang mga CNT nag-atubang sa seryoso nga problema sa paningkamot nga giisip na ang mga miyembro sa regional nga grupo gahinay-hinay na nga misurender,” said LTC Edgardo V. Talaroc Jr, Commanding Officer of 8IB. (It is a clear indication that the CNTs are facing serious armed struggle considering that its regional unit members are gradually surrendering.)

The three surrenderees are now in custody of the 8IB while processing the benefits they can receive from the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program. (PR)
