Former Rebels identified the two cadavers as Lita Ayuma Sereno alias Mayren and Loui Tayoy Sereno alias Marmo, both from SRC1, NCMRC. The said cadavers underwent postmortem investigation by the PNP-SOCO, Gingoog City Police Station, and Dr. Maria Maridel Babanto of the City Health Unit prior turnover to the immediate families.

“Yet again, lives were lost in the war against the Communist Terrorist Group,” said Lt. Col. Ricky L. Canatoy, Commanding Officer of the 58th Infantry Battalion, further stating that “I am urging all NPA members who are still hiding in the hinterlands to come down in peace, lay down their arms, and return to the folds of the law while time and opportunity still exist. Put an end to this way of life: endless suffering in vain, with little regard for your own or others’ lives. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.

The said cadavers are currently at the St. Peter Funeral Home, Gingoog City, while waiting for their immediate families for a proper burial ceremony.
