Camp Navarro, Calarian, Zamboanga City-March 16, 2020
An NPA terrorist, known as the head of the Regional Peasant Bureau, Far South Mindanao Region (FSMR) was nabbed by the government forces in Sultan Kudarat.
Troops of the 6th Infantry Battalion and PNP-Lebak apprehended Leon Tacduro, a.k.a Paeng, at Sitio Kipopo, Keytodak, Lebak, Sultan Kudarat at 2:20am, March 16, 2020.
“Tacduro has a standing warrant of arrest for 3-counts of murder. He will first undergo custodial debriefing and documentation before we turn him over for proper filing of charges,” said Brig. Gen. Wilbur Mamawag, commander of the 603rd Infantry Brigade.
Seized from Tacduro’s possession were: one Caliber 45 pistol; one homemade pistol; two fragmentary Hand Grenade; nine Cellular Phones; one digital camera; and subversive documents.
“This connotes positive development in our campaign against the communist terrorists in Central Mindanao,” said Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, commander of the Western Mindanao Command.
“The apprehension of Tacduro will surely be of great impact in the operational capability of the FSMR in Sultan Kudarat,” Lt. Gen. Sobejana added.
“Losing one of their pillars, weakens the group, thus giving us great advantage in instigating our offensives and peaceful mechanisms in the area,” he concluded.
Subject personality was brought to headquarters of Bravo Company, 6IB in Barangay Purikay of same municipality to undergo medical check-up, debriefing, and documentation prior further legal dispositive action.
