Civilian hacks NPA terrorist to death
Tacloban City (September 4) -- A civilian hacked to death a member of the CPP-NPA at about 5:30 in the afternoon of August 28, at Sitio Manadlaw, Barangay Patok, Dagami, Leyte.
This was learned from Lt. Col. Prudencio Ramos Asto, commander of the 802nd Infantry (Peerless) Brigade of the Philippine Army.
Lt. Col. Asto said that the incident happened after the latest encounter between the elements of the 19th Infantry (Commando) Battalion of the Philippine Army and the Communist Terrorists in Sition Conol, Barangay Kamunuan, Dagami, Leyte at 10:30 in the morning of August 27.
The civilian who went to the military after the hacking, informed that at about 5:30 in the afternoon, the NPA member went to the civilian's house asking for food because he was hungry having no food since his leader was captured by the military the day before.
The civilian fearful for his life and that of his family, reluctantly fed the NPA member. The NPA member put down his armalite rifle while eating. The civilian who was already fed up of the NPA atrocities took the chance and hacked the NPA member who was eating, to death.
The civilian then took refuge in the military who upon hearing of the incident went to the barangay and turned over the dead body of the NPA member to the local police so that his relatives could claim him.
This story is a classic proof that the people in the barangays can no longer endure the atrocities of the NPA terrorists. The people do not want to be taken advantaged by the communist terrorist any more.
This also manifests of the waning ability of the Communist Terrorists to win the support of the people as more and more are becoming conscious and aware of the deceptions of the CPP/NPA/NDF.
The people are now fully convinced that this insurgency in Leyte is a bane in their desire to be emancipated from poverty. The latest conquests of the military against the communist insurgents are results of the people's cooperation towards ending the communist insurgency in Leyte. (PIA 8) [top]
