Two communist rebels yield in Central Luzon
OLONGAPO CITY — Two alleged members of a communist rebel group in Central Luzon surrendered to government troops and turned over their firearms, the Police Regional Office 3 (PRO3) said Thursday.
In a report, the PRO3 identified the two as “Ka Bunog” and “Ka Johnny,” who voluntarily turned themselves in on Tuesday, April 11.
Ka Bunog was described as a former member of Militiang Bayan, which operates in Zambales.
He turned over a unit of 12-gauge improvised shotgun and 40-mm grenade ammunition when he yielded to troops from the Zambales Provincial Mobile Force Company.
On the other hand, Ka Johnny was tagged as an active member of a communist group operating in Tarlac province. He is facing various charges, such as light threats and violations of the Revised Forestry Code.
The PRO3 said Ka Johnny turned in a homemade M14 rifle without a serial number, live ammunition, a magazine and a rifle grenade with a canister. INQ
