A former member of the New People’s Army in northern Negros gave himself up to the 1st Negros Occidental Provincial Mobile Force Company in Brgy. Bunga, Don Salvador Benedicto, surrendering a firearm, as well as an explosive with accessories.

Identified by the police through his alias, Ka Dong, the former rebel member of the dismantled Northern Negros Front under the Komiteng Rehiyonal Negros/Cebu/Bohol/Siquijor also turned in a 40mm grenade launcher ammunition with a blasting cap and detonating cords, and a homemade 12-gauge shotgun.

In a statement, the 1st NOCPMFC said that alias Dong, who received an initial assistance of a sack of rice, will be enrolled to the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program, for him to avail of financial and livelihood assistance from the government.

Last week, three former NPA members also surrendered to the Escalante City Police Station, while they were on vacation from a former rebel unit.

They were identified only as “Ka Kokoy,”“Ka Ashly,” and “Ka Chan,” all former members of the dismantled Northern Negros Front.*
