The Seventh Infantry Division based in Nueva Ecija reported that Dingalan Mayor Sherwin H. Taay has been able to facilitate the surrender of the MB members and withdrawal of support by the rebel group’s mass base in Barangay Umirary, DIngalan, Aurora province with the help of the 91IB.

In a formal surrender ceremony on April 15, two caliber .38 revolvers, a home-made shotgun, and a converted caliber .22 revolver were turned over to authorities by the former MB members.

According to 91IB Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Reandrew P. Rubio, routine interviews have already been conducted on the surrenderers.

The 91IB will assess if the surrenderers will qualify for the Enhanced Community Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) for their livelihood training and financial assistance to qualified former rebels and MB members.
