Calsiyao, reportedly the team leader of Squad Uno of Komiteng Larangang Gerilla — Abra-Mountain Province-Ilocos Sur (KLG- AMPIS), surrendered with an M16 rifle and a caliber .30 gun and M1 carbine, the military reported.

“We welcome the decision of alias ‘Dennis’ to surrender to the authorities. There are benefits under the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) that he can avail to help him live a new life. Our call remains for those KLG-AMPIS members to surrender and give peace a chance,” said Major General Andrew Costelo, commander of the Army’s 7th Infantry Division, based here.
