Westmincom mourns death of MNLF chair Jikiri


Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom) chief Lt. Gen. Corleto S. Vinluan Jr. has extended his condolences to the family of Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) Chairman Yusof Jikiri who passed away Saturday, October 17.

Vinluan said Westmiscom acknowledges Jikiri’s contribution to the peace efforts of the government and the security sector.

“My snappy salute to a true leader who honored the core values of peace and helped make a difference,” he said.

Vinluan said Jikiri’s legacy as peace advocate and devoted leader shall live on.

The Philippine government forged a final peace agreement with the then secessionist MNLF in 1996.
