It can be recalled that last 05 February 2022, a former rebel alias @Dondon surrendered into this Headquarters. In his revelation, during the custodial debriefing, he said that he had direct participation during the attack to the security personnel of Brgy Maraiging. He also stated that they buried the dead body of @Ebok/Tataw somewhere in Brgy Maraiging, in a shallow grave that is close enough to be forgotten.

Based on the custodial debriefing report, the revelation of alias @Dondon, the 29th Infantry (Matatag) Battalion came up with a decision to exhume the human remains together with 1305th Maneuver Company Regional Mobile Force Battalion 13.

Lt.Col Jason M Saldua, the Batallion Commander of 29th Infantry (Matatag) Batallion said in a statement, “We were saddened about the gruesome death of @Ebok/Tawtaw, another life was wasted due to the deceitful and wrong belief that poisoned the minds of all NPA members. This act is a clear manifestation that shows how immoral the NPA’s are, for simply leaving the dead bodies of their comrades without giving respect to the families of those personalities whose lives were sacrificed in the wrong ideology of the CPP-NPA-NDF. On the other hand, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to alias @Dondon and concerned civilians who tipped the troops. Their cooperation had led to a successful recovery of the remains and that we can give alias @Ebok/Tawtaw a decent burial”

“To all others, I plead with you once again to surrender while there is still time. If you want to surrender, our doors are always opened-ready to accept you for the betterment of your future with your families. Waging war is never the solution to obtain peace. The government is waiting for you to return to the folds of law. It is extending its arms to support you in your desire for a better life with your family through the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP). Just return to the folds of the law and mainstream society, for we are the same Filipinos hoping for the betterment of our country”, LtCol Saldua added.

As of report date, the unit is finding the next of kin to claim the remain of the latter, rest assured that he will be given a decent burial that was denied by his comrades of wrong ideology.
