A Communist NPA Terrorist Improvised Explosive Device (IED) “bomb making” expert of the Communist Terrorist Group’s (CTG) “Larangan Gerilya sa Patag 1 (LGP 1)” surrendered to the 84th Infantry (Victorious) Battalion, 7ID, Philippine Army in Camp Gatan, San Jose City, Nueva Ecija on June 22, 2022.

Lieutenant Colonel Enrico Gil C Ileto, Commanding Officer of 84IB, identified the person as “Ka Wing”, 34 years old and member of the 2019 defeated LGP1 also voluntarily surrendered two IEDs, twenty meters detonating cord, and one 500ml bottle containing about 125ml of phosphorus black powder and two improvised explosive device (Anti-tank).

Alias Wing, who operated in Nueva Ecija for five years, revealed that one of his reason to surrender was because of deception and false promises of the CTGs. “Ako po ay nag balik loob at nag surrender sa ating mga kasundaluhan sapagkat napagtanto ko na ako lamang ay nililinlang, ginamit, at pinangakuang mabibigyan ng lupain ng teroristang NPA at para makapamuhay ng maayos kasama ng aking pamilya at malinis ang aking pangalan,” said alias “Ka Wing”.

Ltc Ileto, on the other hand reiterated his call to the remaining members of the CTGs to abandon the terrorist organization and avail the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) of the government in order to live peacefully together with their families.

Ileto added that, “With his surrender, nawala na ang pagkakataon ang posibilidad na pwede pang ma recruit ulit si Alias Wing at magamit ang kanyang kakayahan na magamit ang hawak nya noon na mga pampasabog at gumawa pa ng bomba na maaring sumira ng ari-arian, magdala ng takot at makasakit sa mga mamamayan.”

Meanwhile, MGen Andrew D Costelo PA, Commander of 7th Infantry (Kaugnay) Division commended the 84IB for the surrender of the said former CTG member and appealed to the active CTG affiliate to return to the government side to have a peaceful life.

“We can recall that for the past 6 months enormous numbers of returnee have been set down, it’s a proof that the campaign against insurgency is efficient, with the help of the local government agencies to guide the returnee to start a new life,” MGen Costelo Added. — PA
