DAVAO CITY – The New People’s Army (NPA) has said it rescued six minors who were forced to join the government militia Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit in Agusan del Sur.

In a statement, the Communist Party of the Philippines, which exercises supervision over the NPA, said the minors were rescued during an NPA raid on three military detachments in Agusan del Sur on Wednesday.

The military’s Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom), however, denied the NPA claim. It said the military never recruited minors to become militiamen.

Commodore Romeo Santiago Nebres, spokesman of Eastmincom, said the NPA statement was a “blatant lie.”

In its statement, the communist movement said one minor was hit in the crossfire during the raid on the military detachments by guerrillas. Nebres said several civilians were injured not in a crossfire, but by guerrillas firing indiscriminately. Karlos Manlupig, Inquirer Mindanao

    Hahaha! funny…

    Mga Comrade, alam nyo ba na ang dami daming tao na nagpapa boy para lang maka pasok na cafgu???  maliit man sa standard ng manila ang sahod nila, pero malaki na yon doon sa rural areas, na halos yung isusubo nalang nila eh kukunin nyo pa!

    Di kaya kabaliktaran yung katotohanan???

    May pinsan ako na NPA ngaun dyan, taga Trento, Agusan del Sur. Eto ang kwento ng nanay nya.

    Sa hirap ng buhay, nahikayat ung bata nya na sumali sa NPA dahil sa pangako na 10,000 pesos na sahod kada buwan, libre kain, may botas, kapote, armalite at iba pang gamit.

    Binigyan ng pera yung bata. Yun pala, eh ONE TIME payment lang pala yung 10,000 pesos at hindi buwanan. Sariling sikap pa magka baril, kailangan nila mang agaw sa mga police at civilian. 

    Ngayon di na xa maka alis sa grupo dahil sa banta na papatayin ang pamilya nya. Balita ko NPA parin hanggang ngaun ang bata.
