CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, PHILIPPINES  — On Wednesday afternoon, April 6, Alias Brabong, a high-ranking platoon official of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) surrendered to the Police Regional Office of Northern Mindanao (PRO-10). 

Brig. Gen. Benjamin Acorda Jr., PRO-10 director, delivered Alias Brabong to the regional headquarters at Camp 1Lt Vicente G Alagar, Lapasan village in this city.

According to Acorda, the NPA rebel was one of the perpetrators in the recent kidnapping of a police officer in the Bukidnon village of Kalilangan. After two months and 18 days in captivity, the police officer was discharged.

Under the SRC-5, NCMRC’s operating sphere, Brabong’s guerilla front was also involved in extortion actions targeting businesses, farmers, and construction enterprises, Acorda added.

PRO-10 spokesperson Lt. Col. Michelle Olaivar said a former rebel assisted in Brabong’s surrender.

“He (Brabong) communicated to a former rebel, who also surrendered to us. That was the start. When we confirmed, we immediately fetched him in Talakag town,” Olaivar said.

Brabong also handed up two high-capacity weapons. One M72 Light Anti-tank Weapon (LAW) Caliber 66mm Rocket Launcher and one M1919 Browning Caliber 30 Machine Gun with 228 rounds of linked ammo and a defaced serial number.

On June 23, 2021, the Anti-Terrorism Council formally recognized the National Democratic Front (NDF) as a terrorist organization. The NDF is identified as “an integral and inseparable part” of the CPP-NPA, which was established in April 1973. – WhatALife! / Francis
