NPA struggling, 3 Regional Unit members surrender

IMPASUGONG, Bukidnon - Three (3) Communist New People's Army Terrorists (CNTs) regional unit members surrendered to the 8th Infantry "Dependable" Battalion (8IB) on September 15 and 23, 2020. 

The said surrenderees were identified as alias Bahoy, a Political Guide; alias Neil, a Team Leader; and alias Angelo, a Medic all under a Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) operating in Bukidnon.

The surrenderees revealed that they can no longer endure extreme hunger and their unceasing operations.

Alias Angelo expressed his grievances to the struggling armed group.

"Wala’y suplay sa pagkaon, mas kapoy nga operasyon ang hinungdan nga ako nagluya ug ni desisyon nga mosurender," he said. (No food supplies, tiresome and weary operation made me weak and decide to surrender.)

"Klaro nga timailhan nga ang mga CNT nag-atubang sa seryoso nga problema sa paningkamot nga giisip na ang mga miyembro sa regional nga grupo gahinay-hinay na nga misurender," said LTC Edgardo V Talaroc Jr, Commanding Officer of 8IB. (It is a clear indication that the CNTs are facing serious armed struggle considering that its regional unit members are gradually surrendering.)

The three surrenderees are now in the custody of the 8IB while processing the benefits they can receive from the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (ECLIP).
