Another high-ranking CPP-NPA Terrorist (CNT) leader and five of his subordinates surrendered to the 4th Infantry Division (4ID) at Cabanglasan, Bukidnon on Sunday, November 14, indicating that communist-terrorists are losing territory in Northern Mindanao.

4ID’s 88th Infantry Battalion under the 403rd Infantry Brigade facilitated the surrender of the CNTs led by Bernie Sinunta alias “Boboy,” Intel Officer and Vice Commanding Officer of the North Central Mindanao Regional Committee’s (NCRMC) Sub-Regional Committee 2 (SRC2).

The death of NPA leader Jorge “Ka Oris” Madlos last month, according to Sinunta, prompted widespread demoralization within the NPA’s ranks, prompting them to surrender.

Junie Orque alias Bigboy, Ting Arellano alias Ting, Jorlito Arellano alias Jimboy, Rickian Ampildon alias Pikoy, and Marjon Pasco alias Reden are among the surrenderees.

A 5.56mm Colt M4 rifle, three 5.56mm M16 rifles, and two 7.62mm M14 rifles were turned over by the surrendering CNTs.

In prior pronouncements, Lt. Gen. Andres C. Centino, the Commanding General of the Philippine Army and the recently appointed AFP Chief of Staff, tasked the troops to comply with the Commander-in-Chief’s mandate to finish the local communist armed communist within the 2022 deadline.
