Saturday, December 14, 2013


THE police foiled Saturday an attempt of the New People’s Army (NPA) rebels to take over the police station in the town of Josefina, Zamboanga del Sur, the police reported Saturday.

Police earlier clashed with the lawless group in the town of Dinas, also in Zamboanga del Sur.

Zamboanga Peninsula Police information officer Ariel Huesca said the vigilance of Josefina's police team thwarted the NPA's plan.

Huesca said at least 30 NPA rebels arrived around 6:15 a.m. Saturday at the Josefina Police Station and pretended to arrest a wanted person.

Huesca, however, said the policemen were able to detect the intention of the NPA rebels as they failed to properly identify themselves that prompted the Josefina policemen to position themselves in strategic positions.

The NPA rebels fled upon sensing the arrival of reinforcement after Josefina policemen contacted the Zamboanga del Sur Police Provincial Office and “requested for back-up.”
