NPA terrorists couple nabbed for recruiting minors



Allan M. Apolinaria, 49, and his wife Luzminda S. Apolinaria, 45 arrested by government security forces in Agusan del Norte province for recruiting minors into the communist movement.
1st Lt. Tere Ingente revealed in his statement that this couple was party branch member of Sangay ng Partido sa Platun16-A (SPP 16A) of Guerilla Front Committee 16 (GF16) of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) Northern Mindanao Regional Committee (NMRC).

“The couple is the alleged recruiters of former rebels Glenie Omahas also known as Dave, Garry Alimboyong aka John and Rudy Alimboyong aka Bunso who surrendered in December 2016,” Igante said.




Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Glen Aynera, commanding officer of the 29th IB, also claimed that the couple was allegedly recruiting minors since 2014.
“The former rebels were recruited at a minor age. In fact, Omahas was only 16 years old and Garry Alimboyong was 15 years old when he became a member of Militia ng Bayan (MB) sometime in 2014 and was 17 when he joined the NPA as regular member. This showed that NPAs are not only terrorists but also child exploiters,” Aynera said.

Maj. Gen. Ronald C. Villanueva, urged parents to closely guard their children so will not be deceived by the “wrong promises of the communist.




“I urge parents to safeguard their children especially now that summertime is approaching. CPP-NPA terrorists will step up its youth recruitment in far-flung areas and in cities. During this period, students recruited from universities are most likely to be exposed to the life of an NPA terrorist in the countryside. Do not let your children be a victim of the terroristic ideology of Communist Party of the Philippines and the New Peoples’ Army,”  Villanueva said.
