Seven lawless MILF members surrender

ICC Iligan City (27 November) -- The government's ongoing law enforcement operations in Lanao del Norte has gained another headway with the voluntary surrender of at least seven active members of the Lawless Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Group (LMG), recently.

Thus disclosed Lt Col Agane Adiratico, Civil Military Operations (CMO) Chief, G7, First Infantry Division (1ID), Philippine Army, during the surrender rites which took place at the 65th Infantry Battalion (65IB) main command post in Barangay Gadungan, Madalum, Lanao del Sur (LDS).

Adriatico said 65IB belongs to the 9th Infantry Division (9IB), Philippine Army that provides augmentation force to the 1ID in the province.

Meanwhile, Lt Col Motus, Battalion Commander of 65IB has identified the LMG surrenderees as follows: Ansary Diambangan, Nager Angni, Abdullah Solaiman, Mutilan Angni, Alamoden Angni, Camel Ismael and Macatoman Angni, all of the 212th Brigade, 102nd MILF Base Command in LDS.

The rebel returnees also surrendered to the military authorities their heavy firearms with the corresponding serial numbers (SN):

One (1) unit each of 5.56mm M653 (Elisco) with SN 249328, 7.62mm J1 (FAL), SN 1771, US rifle caliber.30 M1 (Garand), SN 1348039, US rifle caliber.30M1 (Garand Springfield), SN 142357, Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) Launcher SN 770051, Shot gun (Winchester) SN 1151974 and improvised M79 Grenade Launcher with deface SN.

The rebels decided to surrender because they had realized that doing terroristic activities is against the tenets of Islam and they are also tired of running and evading the government troops operating in the area, Adriatico said. (RTD/PIA Marawi) [top]
