CLAVERIA, Misamis Oriental (PIA)--The 58th Infantry "Dimalulupig" Battalion (58IB), in collaboration with the Philippine National Police (PNP)-10’s Revitalized Pulis sa Barangay (R-PSB) program, sectoral groups, and Indigenous People (IP) communities, has declared the Communist Terrorist Group-New People's Army (CTG-NPA) as Persona Non-Grata in Eastern Misamis Oriental for its 54 years of violence and deceit. They are notoriously known for their deceptive recruitment of youth through lies and false promises to lure them into joining violent extremist groups. The CTG-NPA has been responsible for the destruction of construction equipment and the harassment of patrol bases, police detachments, and macroeconomic business establishments. A series of indignation rallies were held in various areas in Impakibel, Barangay Aposkahoy, Claveria, Barangay Ili Ilihon, Salay, Barangay Kabulawan, Lagonglong, and Barangay Mimbuli, Salay, which included testimonies and success stories of former rebels (FRs), the declaration of persona non grata, and the burning of the CPP-NPA-NDF flag. "We are committed to bringing peace and development to our area of operation. We stand with our partners in the government and the community in our fight against the CPP-NPA-NDF's deceptive tactics and acts of terror. We ask for your continued support and cooperation as we work together to make our communities safer and prosperous," 58IB Commander Christian Uy shared. Uy also said that the joint efforts of the AFP, the PNP, sectoral groups, and the IP communities show a united front against the CPP-NPA-NDF and send a strong message that their deceptive tactics, acts of terror, and other atrocities are not welcome in the province of Misamis Oriental.
