While conducting combat operations, troops of the Joint Task Force ZamPeLan encountered more or less eight armed personalities in Brgy. Dapiwak, Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur on Monday morning, June 27, 2022.

Firefight ensued, but, due to the superior firepower of the military, enemies were forced to withdraw. While clearing the encounter site, operating troops recovered one enemy cadaver and assorted war materials including one M16 rifle with long magazine, enemy personal belongings, and foodstuff.

Maj. Gen. Generoso Ponio, Commander of Joint Task Force ZamPeLan said the slain enemy was identified as Nilo “Bodoy” Runat Tambula, Jr. a.k.a. Benjie/Cesar, a member of Squad 2, Team Abe of the defunct Guerilla Front BBC of the Western Mindanao Regional Party Committee. Pursuit operations are currently being conducted.

“Our successful operations in the campaign against terrorism and violent extremism are always attributed to the unwavering support we receive from our partners, stakeholders, and fellow peace advocates,” Lt. Gen. Alfredo Rosario, Jr. said. — PA
