The Commander of the 7th Infantry (KAUGNAY) Division, Philippine Army Major General Andrew D. Costelo PA said that the 84th Infantry Battalion and Philippine National Police have warned the Business Sector in Nueva Ecija on the extortion activities of the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) during the conduct of localized peace engagement at Science City of Muñoz on March 1, 2022.

According to MGen Costelo, the activity aims to make the Business Sector aware of the resource generation and extortion activities of the terrorist group and also to encourage them to report to the authorities the latter’s criminal activities.

“The security sector in Nueva Ecija is intensifying its information campaign on the evils brought by the CTG to all sectors. The Business Sector must be aware of this scheme of the CTG so we can put an end to it. The CTG had already a major setback in terms of people’s support, manpower, and resources. And by informing the vulnerable sector on CTG’s extortion, they will be more vigilant and will not tolerate this criminal activity,” said MGen Costelo.

During the activity, 1st Lieutenant Arnold A Quiñon, CMO Officer of 84IB presented the current security situation of the province.

“Aka May” a former rebel as the guest lecturer, discuss the CTGs Resource Generation Framework that emphasizes the extortion scheme of the Communist Terrorist Group in the province of Nueva Ecija.

Meanwhile, Lieutenant Colonel Enrico Gil C Ileto, the Commanding Officer of the 84th Infantry (Victorious) Battalion, reiterated his call for the whole-of-nation approach in ending the insurgency.

He also emphasized the importance of information dissemination to all sectors of society on the lies, deception, and resource generation of the CTGs.

Part of the activity is the distribution of handbills and leaflets to the participants on the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) and AFP-PNP Recruitment Process.
