LTC Ronald M Illana, the Commanding Officer of the 8th Infantry Battalion, welcomes the surrender of another member of the CPP- NPA Terrorists. “This is a good sign that they are now slowly heeding the call of President Rodrigo RoaDuterte to give up the Arm Struggle and embrace the government once more.” said LTC ILLANA.
“We do understand that these people are just victims of deception, agitation and false promises inculcated by the CPP-NPA. With that in mind, we encourage these people to surrender and see the efforts of the government to attain peace as it unfolds before them.” he added. 8IBDependable/MCAG
