Without firing a single shot, the 1st Pulang Bagani Company-New People's Army successfully overran the patrol base of the Bahani Long Range Platoon (BLRP) under the 1003rd Brigade-10th Infantry Division-AFP in sitio Damilag, Barangay Mapula, Paquibato District December 9 Thursday. Red fighters carted away eight high-powered rifles (four Garand, two M1 carbines, one M16 and a 12-gauge shotgun). A Harris radio, assorted ammunitions, military paraphernalia and documents were also confiscated during the daring NPA raid.
Eight Cafgu members who were on duty at the time abandoned their posts, and escaped. The BLRP patrol base detachment commander AFP Cpl. Fresilo C. Dosel (SN No. 810931) surrendered to the NPA raiding team. Another Cafgu conscript who was a minor also surrendered. The NPA raiding team immediately released Cpl. Dosel and the CAFGU child conscript after they voluntarily handed their firearms.
This latest NPA tactical offensive further exposes the lies and fabrications peddled by 10th ID-AFP Confidential Agent Ruben Labawan and his mentor B/Gen. Eduardo del Rosario as well as 1003rd-AFP's Col. Domingo Tutaan that falsely accused the People's Army as cold-blooded murderers of Lumads. It further proves the 10th ID-AFP's duplicity in denying their continued recruitment and arming of minors as combatants into the AFP paramilitary ranks.
