NPA's KASAMA member withdraws support from the terrorist group

    Fort Ramon Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija – A member of Katipunan ng Samahang Maralita (KASAMA), a New People's Army's underground mass organization, at the same time a former Secretary of the Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (KADAMAY), an infamous group that forcibly occupied housing units intended for uniformed personnel in the government in March 2017, withdrew her membership and support from local terrorists on April 17, 2020.
    Identified only as alias “Shirley”, the former Secretary of KADAMAY Pandi 3 Housing at Barangay Mapulang Lupa in Pandi, Bulacan is also the former block leader of KADAMAY Bagong Bayan – Bocaue Chapter.
    The withdrawal is a result of the joint efforts of the elements of 48th Infantry “Guardians” Battalion (48IB), the Pandi Municipal Police Station, and the Bulacan Police Provincial Office.
    According to Lieutenant Colonel Felix Emeterio M. Valdez, the 48IB Commanding Officer, alias Shirley is undergoing routine interview conducted by the said unit, as of this writing.
    Brigadier General Alfredo V. Rosario, Jr., Commander of the Army’s 7th Infantry “Kaugnay” Division (7ID), said that he believes there will be more surrenders in the days to come, during this COVID-19 crisis, as NPA supporters, and even local terrorists, will soon realize that their only hope to live a decent life right now is with the aid of the government.
    “Magbuhat ng maglockdown ang Luzon, panay reklamo at pagtutuligsa ang narinig natin mula sa mga NPA at kanilang supporters. Wala naman silang nagawa upang ibsan ang paghihirap ng mamamayan. Nag-take advantage pa sila sa mga tropa na tumutulong magbigay ng relief. Ngayong sila na ang nagugutom, makikita nila na handa ang ating pamahalaang tugunan ang kanilang pangangailangan. Basta’t magbalik-loob lamang sila at maging katuwang natin sa kapayapaan at pagkakaisa,” the 7ID Commander stated.
