The communist terrorist group’s squad leader and four members surrendered and turned up their weaponry to the 7th Infantry Battalion in Sultan Kudarat on Thursday, February 3, 2022.

The surrendered personalities are former members of Platoon Myphone, East and West Daguma Fronts, Sub-regional Committee Daguma, Far South Mindanao Region, according to WestMinCom Commander Lt. Gen. Alfredo Rosario, Jr. The 7IB, Bagumbayan, and Sen. Ninoy Aquino PNP collaborated on the successful surrender of the five CTG personalities.

Maj. Gen. Juvymax Uy, Commander of Joint Task Force Central, commended the provinces and local governments for their unflinching support.

“Our convergence encourages more former rebels to come out and end their armed struggle peacefully,” Maj. Gen. Uy said.

Two M16 rifles with magazines and ammunition, one 5.56mm Carbine rifle, and three cal. 38 revolvers were given up by the surrendered individuals, whose identities have not yet been revealed for their safety.

“Let us continue to convince our misled Kababayans to return to the folds of the law and take advantage of the assistance from the government. Rest assured that we will assist them in their reintegration into mainstream society,” Lt. Gen. Rosario, Jr. stated.

In Central Mindanao, 12 CTG members have already surrendered to the military since January of this year. Their documents are currently being processed in preparation for their enrollment in the government’s reintegration program.
