Authorities led by Criminal Investigation and Detection Group facilitated the surrender of a CTG member on August 31, 2022, at about 6:00 PM held at CIDG Occidental Mindoro PFU, Camp Winston Sibley Ebersole, San Roque, San Jose, Occidental Mindoro.

Lito Dela Cruz Siquioco a.k.a. “Nico”, a member of the CPP/NPA under KLG ICM operating in the areas of Bansud, Pinamalayan, and Socorro in Oriental Mindoro voluntarily surrendered himself to CIDG along with the following:

a. One (1) homemade shotgun loaded with four (4) rounds of ammunition; and
b. One (1) Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

Accordingly, Siquioco decided to return to the folds of law upon realizing that he was just deceived by the sweet lies and false ideologies of the armed group.

The said CIDG unit also coordinated with the Provincial Social Welfare Development Office (PSWDO) to facilitate the enrollment of the surrenderer in the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) which will aid him to start anew when he returns to his family and community.

PBGen Ronald O Lee, the CIDG Director said that this significant operation of the CIDG will have a deep impact on the CTG's political arm and will set an example to urge other rebels to abandon their radical ways and return to the government’s side.
