Camp Col Rafael C Rodriguez, Butuan City – Police Regional Office 13 (PRO 13) efforts in encouraging every single Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) member to return and surrender themselves to the government authorities, led to a CTG Couple Members who voluntarily surrendered last February 12.
PRO 13 Regional Director POLICE BRIGADIER GENERAL ROMEO M CARAMAT JR. revealed the surrenderees as a.k.a “Wendel”, 37 years old, male, a resident of Brgy., Jaguimitan, Nasipit, Agusan del Norte and a full-time member of Sub-Regional Committee (SRC) 3, Guerilla Front (GF) 4A under North Central Mindanao Regional Committee (NCMRC) with the position of Team Leader and his live-in partner a.k.a “An-An”, 32 years old, female, a resident Brgy. Malinao, Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental and designated as Squad Medic of SRC-3 GF4A of same Regional Committee.
The couple surrendered to the personnel of 1304th Maneuver Company of Regional Mobile Force Batallion (RMFB) 13 and 1st Agusan del Norte Provincial Mobile Force Company (ADN-PMFC).
“Wendel” is known to be the brother of Jealan Pinakilid alias “Baking”, the commanding officer GF4A of the New People’s Army operating in the areas of Agusan del Norte and some part of the Misamis Oriental province.
Both surrendered to unite with their families and live a normal life which might turn out to be impossible if they were to remain in the movement.
“Despite the recent atrocities conducted by the New People’s Army in Surigao del Sur, they cannot hide the fact that many of its members are tired of their futile resistance and just wanted to live a peaceful and violent-free life. I call to our brothers and sisters who were victims of this Maoist ideology to lay down your arms and live peacefully with the rest of the society before it’s too late,” RD CARAMAT said.
The surrendered CTG couple is now in the process of availing the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) in the region.
