The 7th Infantry (KAUGNAY) Division of the Philippine Army, led by MGen Andrew D. Costelo PA, conducted rigorous focused military operations, which resulted in the surrender of Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) militants in Aurora.

The 91st Infantry (SINAGTALA) Battalion, along with its counterparts, facilitated the voluntary surrender of lay-low CTG members identified as alias “Mario,” alias “Don-don,” and alias “Albert/Romeo,” who were residents of Casiguran and Disalag, Aurora, respectively, on January 26, 2022.

They turned over one cal. 45 (Colt MK IV), three unserviceable M14 magazines, 30 rounds of M14 ammunition, one ICOM base radio, and DENR leaflets (Gabay sa Pagpapatupad Ng Batas Pangkalikasan).

Said CTG members were brought to Bravo Company’s 91IB headquarters in Brgy. Dibaraybay, Dinalungan, Aurora for proper documentation and disposition, go to Dibaraybay, Dinalungan, Aurora.

Meanwhile, MGen Costelo likened the surrender of former CTG members to the work of PTF-ELCAC of Aurora, citing the sequence of surrenders in recent weeks as proof that their peace and development activities in partnership with the Army and PNP were successful.

“Your surrender is an inspiration to those who are still active in the terrorist organization. Kaya naman lubos akong nagpapasalamat sa inyong desisyong sumuko na sa pamahalaan. Sa kabila ng pagiging lay-low ninyo, inyo paring ipinagkatiwala ang inyong mga sarili sa autoridad kasama ang inyong mga armas,” said MGen Costelo.
