The Army’s 102nd Infantry (IGSOON) Brigade laid hero CAFGU Active Auxiliary (CAA) to rest in Sitio Mati, Barangay Titik, Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte on Wednesday, August 18, 2021.

Last August 10, Amir Singcuan, a 26-year-old CAA, was wounded in a clash with the Guerilla Front – BBC in Katipunan, Zamboanga del Norte.

For his meritorious and dedicated service as one of their protectors against the Communist Terrorist Group, he is regarded as a hero by his community.

Singcuan has participated in multiple firefights against the CTG and was injured in 2020. Despite this, he continued to participate in multiple operations with our regular soldiers.

“We are saddened by the sudden demise of CAA Singcuan who has demonstrated remarkable courage and dedication to his duty,” said Brig. Gen. Leonel Nicolas, Commander, 102nd Infantry Brigade.

The AFP Education Benefits System Office would provide scholarship grants to CAA Singcuan’s dependents, totaling P500,000 in cash benefits and a house and lot.

“We honor his ultimate sacrifice for the peace in Zamboanga Peninsula and we will ensure that his death will not be in vain,” Brig. Gen. Nicolas added.

At Brgy Bagumbayan, Sergio Osmena Sr, Zamboanga del Norte, the combined soldiers of 97IB and 42IB fought the same faction, GF-BBC, in a 30-minute combat during his interment.
