Police present 3 more masked ‘rebel surrenderers’

POLICE presented yesterday three masked men who were allegedly New People’s Army (NPA) rebels who chose to surrender in a hinterland village here on Tuesday.

Authorities said the masked men from Barangay Tinagpoloan, supposedly members of the NPA’s Front 12, surrendered to Capt. Dennis Ebsolo, Lumbia police chief.

Police said the alleged rebels laid down their weapons — a Garand rifle, a Carbine rifle, a caliber .45 pistol and ammunition, including a three grenades.

During their presentation, the masked men said they chose to yield to authorities because they were hungry and they became tired of eight years of hiding in the hinterlands.

The police and the alleged surrenderers’ narratives could not be independently validated.

Col. Henry Dampal, city police director,  said the three men would benefit from the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-Clip) program. He also urged NPA rebels to surrender, too.
