NPA denies killing of family of four in Calinan

The 1st Pulang Bagani Company of the New People’s Army in Southern Mindanao categorically denies any hand in the brutal massacre of the Gonzaga family in sitio Bulan-Bulan, Barangay Dalagdag Calinan last Monday, April 9.

From all indications, this highly condemnable barbaric act points to the military brainchild Cafgu-Alamara that has been responsible for years of banditry, salvaging and other deplorable acts of intimidation in the hinterlands.

Col. Alex Ambal of the AFP’s 73rd Infantry Batallion is patently lying when he blames the NPA for the massacre in an attempt to win propaganda points and depict the NPA as terrorists and criminals. The Alamara bandits are acting out the military’s script so as to deflect attention from the victorious DAPECOL Raid and public condemnation over the military’s indiscriminate firing and killing of nine year old Grecil Galacio in Compostela Valley.
