NPA leader surrenders in Kalinga

Tabuk, Kalinga (24 October) -- Heeding calls from relatives to come down, a squad leader of the New People's Army (NPA) surrendered recently to Governor Floydelia Diasen.

Jayson Dayag a.k.a. Spike finally decided to join the mainstream society after several invitations of his cousins who are members of the police and the military.

Department of Interior and Local Government Provincial Director Francisco Gamatero said Jayson accompanied by his father and relatives came to his house one night to surrender. However, Gamatero advised the group to undergo the normal process including Jayson pledging allegiance to the Philippine government.

Jayson's ceremonial surrender took place before Gov. Diasen at the Capitol on October 19.

Diasen welcomed Jayson and told him to unconditionally pledge allegiance to the state and be an asset of society. The lady governor assured Jayson the province's assistance under the Kalinga Social Integration Plan which she chairs: Community Awareness and Acceptance; Force and Arms Management; and Socio-economic Intervention.

Dayag surrendered an M1 Garrand rifle with two clips live ammos. He was turned over to the Philippine National Police under the command of P/Supt. Virgilio Laya for the processing of documents and benefit claims under the social integration program of government.

Jayson, 26, belongs to the Leho Cawilan Command, holds 15 NPA men under his command and operates in the Lubuagan, Tanudan Tinglayan and Pasil area.

A first year high school drop out, he joined the NPA in 2000 when he was 17 years old. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
