MARAMAG, Bukidnon -- Troops of the 88th Infantry "Maringal" Battalion discovered food and arms cache at an uninhabited and forested area of Sitio Buco, Banlag, Valencia City while conducting combat operations.
A certain alias Janjan, member of SDG, Company Thunder, Guerilla Front 6 (GF6), SRC2, NCRMC who recently surrendered, divulged the buried firearms and supplies they extorted from the community.
Among the recovered items were eight containers filled with rice, two shotguns with two magazines loaded, and one Magnum .22 rifle with empty magazines.

Lieutenant Colonel Franklin Fabic, commanding officer of 88IB, commended the troops for the success of the operation and recognized the former rebel who revealed the buried foods and arms cache.
"We are calling the remnants of Coy Thunder who are still undecided and continue to embrace a wrong ideology, now is the right time to return to the folds of the law and live a normal life just like what your front secretary and commanding officer did. Don't waste your life, open your eyes for the truth while you still have time. The 88IB troopers will always be open for you if you intend to surrender," he said. (PR)
