CAMP BGEN OSCAR M FLORENDO- Another twelve members of Underground Mass Organizations (UGMO) voluntarily surrendered and took their oath of allegiance to the folds of the government yesterday afternoon (November 5) at Brgy. Lubing, Burgos, Ilocos Sur.
In his report to Police General Camilo Pancratius P Cascolan, Chief, PNP, the PRO1 Regional Director Police Brigadier General Rodolfo S Azurin, Jr identified the surrenderees as: Allan Andress S Dupredo, Bernardo Felicitas, Bernardo Cotillon, Jonna Foronda Felicitas, of legal ages and residents of Brgy Luna, Burgos, Ilocos Sur; Henry Cabangcal, Joey Abalos, Joseph Abalos, Mauro Abalos, Richard Cabangcala, Rodrigo Abalos, Yolanda Cotillion, Guillermo Galvez, of legal ages and residents of Brgy. Lubing, Burgos, Ilocos Sur.
Based on the report reaching this camp, personnel of 81st Infantry Battalion, 7D, Philippine Army, and Burgos Municipal Police Station facilitated the surrender of the said CNT supporters.
“There is progress in peace and unity. And the surrender of these NPA supporters manifests that our government is serious in its efforts to End Local Communist Armed Conflict in the country. For this will impact a big leap in our country’s sustainable peace and development,” PRO1 Regional Director, Police Brigadier General Rodolfo S Azurin, Jr., said yesterday.
He also appealed to the members of Communist National Terrorist groups to lay down their arms against the government and encourage them to live in freedom under the realm of the government.
“The Municipal Task Force ELCAC headed by Hon Mayor Nathaniel Escobar and the local officials of Burgos, Ilocos Sur played a very significant role in encouraging these surrenderees to return to the folds of the law,” PBGen Azurin averred.
The surrenderees renounced their support to the terrorist groups after two founders of Save Quirino Movement Underground Mass Organization (UGMO) under the umbrella of Cordillera Peoples Alliance surrendered last November 4, 2020.

Together we continue to Heal and Recover as one.
