Headquarters, 44th Infantry (AGILE N’ STABLE) Battalion, Lower Baluran, Imelda, Zamboanga Sibugay Province – On October 09, 2020 at 8 o’clock in the morning, troops of 44IB were able to recover one (1) AK47, fourteen (14) magazines and live ammunitions at Municipality of Leon B Postigo, Zamboanga Del Norte.
Lt. Col. Don Don Templonuevo, Commanding Officer of 44IB lauded the Agile N’ Stable troopers for the successful discovery of the arms cache and recognized the effort of the former rebels that led to its uncovering.
“This shows that the Former Rebels are very much willing to help the Army in order to defeat the Communist Terrorist Groups as they lose their grounds and support from the masses in the areas of Zamboanga Peninsula. Surely, we will strongly continue to follow our mission to make Zamboanga Peninsula insurgency free.”
The recovered firearm and war materiel were brought to the Headquarters, 44IB in Lower Baluran, Imelda, Zamboanga Sibugay Province for proper disposition.
