NSFA, Panacan, Davao City – Corruption in the CPP-NPA  caused a whole unit of the CPP-NPA operating in the boundary of Agusan Sur and Compostela Valley to surrender to Government on December 25, 2018.

In a report made by BGen Andres Centino, Commander of 401st Infantry Bde based in Prosperidad, Agusan Sur,  the 19 members of Guerilla Front 3 and PBC 4 through their leader identified as  Mark initially sent their intention to surrender when they can no longer endure the corruption in the CPP-NPA and their inconsistencies in their propaganda and action while some of them can no longer endure the continuous operations of the military.

They finally yielded in Barangay Ilang-Ilang, Loreto, Agusan Sur after they were reached out by the elements of 26IB and 75IB. They brought along with them one M203 rifle, six M16 rifles, one, M653 rifle, one M14 rifle, four pistols, and two grenades.

They also brought with them, three radios and more than a thousand ammunition of M16 and M14.

MGen. Ronald C. Villanueva, Commander of 4th Infantry Division and the concurrent, Acting Commander of Eastern Mindanao welcome the surrender and encourage other NPA members to do the same.

“We welcome, their surrender, this is the best gift to their families who are waiting for them to come home alive.

Our lines of communication are also open to those who wish to take this opportunity to abandon the armed struggle and violence perpetrated by the CPP-NPA-NDF and embrace a life of peace and prosperity with their family.”  MGen Villanueva said.
