The former rebel, who were part of NPA’s East Daguma Front, Sub-Regional Command Daguma, Far South Mindanao Region, surrendered a 5.56mm rifle, a caliber 30 M1 Garand and three 12-gauge shotguns.

In a separate operation, this former rebel had become an instrument in the recovery of a 7.62mm M60 general-purpose machine gun (GPMG), another two M16 rifles, and other several munitions.

Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner,. Jr., lauded 57IB for facilitating the voluntary surrender of the former rebels.
