The military's 103rd Infantry Brigade facilitated the rido/family feud settlement between the Alulong and Bantuas Clans in Bacolod-Kalawi, Lanao del Sur on May 14, 2020.
Said warring clans engaged in series of armed confrontations since January of this year which caused alarm and panic not just to their community but to adjacent barangays as well.
Col. Jose Maria Cuerpo stressed that “Rido Settlement” will remain as one of the priorities of the brigade in attaining peace and development in the province.
The settlement was held at the Provincial Capitol and was presided by Engr. Gorondatu Alulong, Municipal Engineer of Bacolod-Kalawi.
Signing of pact between warring clans was witnessed by Col. Nolie Anquillano, 103IBde Deputy Brigade Commander; Mr. Abdulmohaimen Dipatuan; Mayor Aslani Balt of Bayang; and Mayor Khalida Sangaguila of Pagayawan.
"The successful campaign is attributed to the Bacolod-Kalawi Municipal Task Force on Ending Local Armed Conflict (MTF-ELAC) which is composed of the Bacolod-Kalawi LGU, Alpha Company of the 55th Infantry Batalion, Bacolod-Kalawi Municipal Police Station, Municipal Interior and Local Government Office, local traditional leaders, and other local agencies," said Maj. Gen. Gene Ponio of the Joint Task Force ZamPeLan.
To show their sincerity to the agreement, the Alulong clan turned over two M16A1, one M653 carbine, and one M1 carbine.
"We will continue to facilitate rido settlements as our initiative to assist local government units in keeping peace and order in the communities amid the current crisis," said Lt. Gen Cirilito Sobejana, WestMinCom Commander.
