This was confirmed when the 88th Infantry Battalion (88IB) troops uncovered contraceptive pills and condoms inside NPA hideout—locally known as “Hagpo”—in a forested part of Barangay Kibongkog, San Fernando, Bukidnon.
The rage of the crowd pulled Lt. Colonel Franklin F. Fabic to pledge and commit in saving these women and youth out from hell grounds.
“I condemn these malicious and inhumane deeds of the CPP-NPA to the Filipino women and young victims inside their hideouts. It saddens me to imagine that these helpless women and youth cannot stand up against them because of power these leaders have. As a father, I cannot think of much worse than this done by the CPP-NPA to the daughters of longing parents. This has to be stopped. There is no place for these brutalities up there. We, in this unit, will help them out from their miseries and bring them back to their families where they should belong. Where they are respected, loved, and cared as a woman, as a daughter, and as human.”
