An alleged former member of the dismantled communist guerilla front Kilusang Larangang Gerilya-Sierra Madre (KLG-SM) of the New People’s Army (NPA) surrendered and yielded his firearm to government troops in Dipaculao, Aurora.

In a statement on Wednesday, Maj. Gen. Andrew Costelo, acting commander of the Northern Luzon Command (Nolcom), said Berboy Calara Aviendo surrendered to Joint Task Force Kaugnay’s 91st Infantry Battalion on Monday night and yielded his firearm the following day in Barangay Calaocan.

Costelo said the firearm surrendered was an M14 rifle, along with a magazine for M14, and nine rounds of ammunition, which are now at the 91IB headquarters in Baler, Aurora.

He commended Aviendo for his decision to return to the fold of the law and his willingness to start life anew and help the military further weaken the arms capability of the communist terrorists by surrendering his firearm.

“There is one less firearm to be used by the remnants of these communist terrorist groups. This manifests the complete abhorrence of Aviendo to the culture of violence that the communist terrorist group has sown on to his mind and of his former comrades,” Costelo said.
