Two NPAs return to the folds of law in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur

Lianga, Surigao Del Sur After a series of encounters between the government forces and the Communist-Terrorist Group (CTG) in the hinterlands of Sitio Panucmoan, Barangay Diatagon, Surigao del Sur, two (2) members of the Sub-Regional Sentro de Grabidad Southland (SRSDG-SL), Northeastern Mindanao Regional Committee (NEMRC) surrendered to the 8th Special Forces Company of the 3rd Special Forces (Arrowhead) Battalion last May 12, 2022, at Barangay Libertad, Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur.

Jessica Q Agustin, also known as @Apple, is a Medical Staff of SRSDG-SL and Romel O Damarillos, also known as @Kim-J, belongs to Squad 2 of the same CTG unit, surrendered with one caliber.30 M1 Carbine and Cal. 38 snub-nosed revolver.

Aside from the relentless combat operations that keep them on the run, the seemingly futile armed struggle and uncovered deceptions prompted them to surrender. They further revealed that the group’s abuses such as looting of farm products and harvests of the poor farmers in the hinterlands and their leaders mismanagement of their finances made them realize that they belonged to a group of bandits if not terrorists that are contrary to the propagated delusive ideals that enticed them to join the CTG. The terrible experience they suffered from their deceitful comrades forced them to denounce the deceptive ideologies of the CPP-NPA-NDF.

Lieutenant Colonel Gernale, Commanding Officer of the 3rd SF Battalion, is pleading the families of the remaining active members of the CPP-NPA to convince their loved ones to surrender and establish a strong and happy family so that together we can establish a strong and undivided nation.

The surrenderers are now under the custody of the 3rd SF Battalion for debriefing and will subsequently be enrolled in the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integrated Program (E-CLIP) to receive financial and livelihood assistance from the Local Government.
