SIX MEMBERS of the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) in Agusan del Norte surrendered to the combined troops of the 29th Infantry Battalion and the Cabadbaran City Police Station in P4 Barangay Del Pilar, Cabadbaran City, Agusan del Norte on Sept. 11.

The surrenderees were identified as Vicente Tello Moldez, team leader of Edukasyon Propaganda, a resident of Barangay San Roque, San Miguel Surigao del Sur; John Paul Mandag Salahay, member of Sandatahang Yunit Pampropaganda 21C, Weakened Guerilla Front 21, Northeastern Mindanao Regional Committee, and Wawie Mandag Salahay, team leader of Sandatahang Yunit Pampropaganda 21A, Weakened Guerilla Front 21, Northeastern Mindanao Regional Committee. 

Other returnees were identified as Caryl Alvarez, Erwin Sandag Enriques, and Angelo Sales alias Sky/Carlo/Third, members of Regional Sentro de Grabedad, Northeastern Mindanao Regional Committee.

According to 1Lt. Jade Bryce Buñe, the civil-military operations officer of 29IB, the six men also turned over an AK47 rifle, two AR15 rifles, an M4 Carbine rifle, and an M14 rifle with six live rounds. 

Moldez revealed that they surrendered after hearing how their former comrades were treated by the government to help resume their normal lives. 

“I’m also calling all our remaining members to avoid wasting our lives and let us return to fold of the law,” he said.

In a statement, LtCol Cresencio C Gargar, commanding officer of 29IB, said “I am glad that you have decided to lay down your arms and decided to surrender. Now that you are here, rest assured that you will be assisted and guided to properly return to normal life.”

Gargar also reiterated his call to the remaining members “The time is at its peak to lay down their arms as our door is always open for those who wanted to start a new life and be with their family now that Christmas is fast approaching.”
