ALCALA, Cagayan—This month (March), is the celebration of Fire Prevention Month but alleged New People’s Army members burned six heavy equipment for road concreting last night, Feb 28, 2019 at Brgy. Agani
Police Brigadier General Jose Mario M Espino said that the NPA’s activity is a proof of their motive to pursue their lawless purpose, contrary to their claim of protecting the people.
Espino also said that on February 28, 2019, when more or less 30 fully armed malefactors suspected to be members of the Communist Terrorist Group threatened the employees of CAMIA construction and subsequently burned the heavy equipment using a gasoline and fled away going east direction.
The equipment burned by the perpetrators were the following: three (3) units Mixer Trucks, one (1) unit Dump Trucks, one (1) unit Grader and (1) unit Steam Roller Truck.
“The NPA’s evil act through the burning and destruction of heavy equipment being utilize for the infrastructure development particularly road concreting project along Brgys Baybayog, Masin, Pared and Pussian in the said municipality is a proof of their desperate move to extort money from the construction firms in the locality” Espino added.
Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines assured that public security measures are implemented to ensure the safety of all potential targets including government vital installations, power lines, private companies and threatened municipal police stations to ensure that they are adequately manned by security personnel.
Espino encourages the other communist terrorist NPA members who would no longer contain the evil acts and want to return to the folds of law to avail the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) of the Government. northernforum.net
