A MEMBER of a communist group operating in Negros Oriental turned himself in to the Canlaon City police on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.

Ka Rodgen, a member of the Section Guerrilla Unit (SGU) under Central Negros 1, also surrendered his .38 revolver.

Lieutenant Colonel Miguel Andeza, chief of Canlaon Police Station, along with members of 62nd Infantry Battalion, Philippine Army, personally accepted the rebel.

Andeza said Ka Rodgen surrendered because he saw that the government is serious in its campaign against terrorism.

Andeza added that the former member of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) also had former comrades who were arrested during a police raid.

The Canlaon Police chief called on other members of the CPP-NPA and National Democratic Front to return to the fold of the law in order to live a peaceful life. (BBT, TPT)
