ZAMBOANGA CITY -- Three members of the Dawlah Islamiyah, including a teenage boy, surrendered to military authorities in Lanao del Sur, military officials said Tuesday.
Lt. Col. Rafman Altre, the Army’s 82nd Infantry Battalion commander, said the three surrendered at his headquarters around 4:30 p.m. Monday in Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur.
Altre identified them as Juhari Mangotara, 16; Jamil Dimasangkay, 24; and Mail Tinga, 36. They yielded two caliber .45 pistols and an M-79 grenade launcher.
Altre said Mangoatara and Dimasangkay were involved in a firefight against government troops in Paigapo town in 2017 while Tinga in the Butig clash in 2016.
Col. Jose Maria Cuerpo II, acting commander of the Army’s 103rd Infantry Brigade, said: “We are confident that the people and the local government of Lanao del Sur are now accustomed to peace and time for vibrant economic opportunities in the province."
“We will continuously collaborate with local chief executives and other stakeholders to encourage other supporters or even the locals with loose firearms to surrender and submit themselves to the folds of the law in order to sustain the peace we have achieved through our relentless military operation,” Cuerpo added.
