CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao — Six fully armed Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighter (BIFF) rebels have decided to abandon their comrades in the Liguasan Marsh at 8:30 am on Oct. 10.

Mama Abdul, alias Lapu-lapu and five others surrendered to 33rd Infantry Battalion led by Lt. Colonel Harold M. Cabunoc in Barangay Midconding, General SK Pendatun, Maguindanao.

The surrenderers are members of the BIFF of Karialan faction under Commander Gani Saligan, who is still  hiding and a notorious rebel in Southern Liguasan Marsh area.

They brought with them six high powered firearms including one  M14 rifle, one  Garand rifle, one .45 Cal pistol, two homemade RPG and  one improvised .45 cal rifle.

Abdul said he wanted to support the peace initiatives of the government. The surrenderees have realized the futility of their cause after the land conflict in Brgy Midconding had been resolved through the Army troopers. (with reports from dpao)
