The former CPP-NPA Terrorist (CNT) personalities are identified as Golden Romania Compas Sr, 42 years old, a former Political Guide of Platoon Falcon, Sub-Regional Committee (SRC) 1.

In addition, another CNT personality who surrendered to 58IB is identified as Neiljan Pasague Legaspino, 29 years old who served as VCO1/SL of SRSDG Eagles, Sub-Regional Committee (SRC) 1. Neiljan surrendered together with his wife who is identified as Ariel Uba Compas, Medic of Platoon Falcon, SRC 1, 27 years old. The two voluntarily surrendered due to the hardships and deception they had experienced from the said Communist Terrorist Group (CTG).

Moreover, they surrendered with them the following: one M16 improvised into a Sniper Rifle with magazines and ammunitions; one improvised explosive device (IED); two blasting caps, and 10 Mtrs detonating cord.

Furthermore, the said personalities are currently under the custody of 58IB and would be enrolled in the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP), under which the former rebel are expected to receive more than P200,000.

Meanwhile, BGEN ADONIS ARIEL ORIO, the 402Bde Commander commended the troops.

“I congratulate the troops of 58IB for this achievement. Indeed, this is attributed to all of your hardworking personnel as a result of your relentless efforts and diligence. Also, this is made possible with the support and efforts made by the NTF-ELCAC, local government units and the rest of the community. However, this is my call to the remaining CNT members as I urge you to choose the path of peace. The Stingers Brigade will not cease in conducting our Focused Military Operations until all of our enemies are finally neutralized,” BGEN Orio said. — PA
