27 former rebels received PHP3.06 million in financial aid from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) as part of the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).
Former New People’s Army (NPA) militants received financial support from DILG Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr., who flew to Zamboanga del Sur on Friday to welcome them back to the fold of the law.
Additionally, a total of 72 weapons were presented for demilitarization.
Abalos said in a statement that the surrender makes all the hard work of the government to quash insurgency all worth it.
Abalos referred to the surrenderers as “friends rescued,” claiming that the actual enemies of the state had misled and exploited them. BKM/ Expat Media
