Four supporters of the communist New People’s Army (NPA) have surrendered to the military in Masiu, Lanao del Sur.
“According to the surrenderors, they were dissatisfied with the NPA organization and their terroristic activities,” said Lt. Col. Edgar Allan Villanueva, 49th Infantry Battalion commander.
Those who surrendered recently handed over one M16 rifle, one caliber 38 handgun, magazines, and ammunitions.
Meanwhile, 103rd Infantry Brigade commander Col. Jose Maria Cuerpo II facilitated the turnover of the rebel supporters to Masiu Deputy Municipal Administrator Kisrawi Macarankat.
“We are gaining grounds in our relentless operation in the province and we are thankful to the local populace and the local government unit for their continued trust and support,” said Cuerpo. #
