“Sigi ingon ang NPA nga ang Gobyerno ang kurakot, pero ang tinuod nga istorya sila ang kurakot,” said former NPA member Danny Lauda Andip, as quoted by 10th Infantry ‘Agila’ Division (10ID) of the Philippine Army.
10ID said Andip alias Berni who was the Squad Finance Logistic Officer of Squad Abe, Front Committee 53 for one year, surrendered to 39th Infantry Battalion on December 12.
“Berni revealed that alias “Jecko”, his NPA commander is pocketing the cash that were promised to them when joining the NPA. He further added that the budget for food supplies given by Jecko are so little despite of the many extortion that the communist group are doing,” 10ID said.
All former NPA members who decided to surrender are undergoing Comprehensive Localized Integration Program facilitated by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
“We are always open for those NPA that would like to surrender, there are many ways in addressing your issues, taking up arms should not be the choice,” Lieutenant Colonel Harold Argamosa said.
