A former Bayan Muna Sarangani provincial coordinator who claimed he was also a member of the New People’s Army (NPA) surrendered to the soldiers of 73rd Infantry Battalion in Sitio Loot, Barangay Poblacion, Malapatan, Sarangani on Saturday, the military reported.
The report identified the one who returned to the folds of the law as Marvin Magrano alias Loloy, who, aside from being a former official of the progressive organization, was also a member of the NPA.
Major Jerry Lamosao, 10th Infantry Division Public Affairs Office chief, said the battalion, the Sarangani Provincial Police Office, and Malapatan Municipal Police Station facilitated Magrano’s surrender.
Magrano also turned over four Claymore mines, a rifle, a rifle grenade, a homemade explosive and a detonating cord.
Magrano claimed that the mines were intended for the employees of the local government and soldiers who were conducting programs in hinterland barangays of the province.
