BANGUED, Abra -- Six former rebel surrenderees were presented last week to Gov. Maria Jocelyn V. Bernos at the provincial capitol by the 24th Infantry Battalion.
Three of them are from Sallapadan, one from Tubo, one from Licuan-Baay and one from Lacub.
Each received P65,000 under comprehensive local integration program of the Department of Interior and Local Government.
Bernos urgedAbrenians who are who are members of the New People’s Army to  realize soon that there is no better battle than to fight for one’s family and loved ones as she  encouraged all of them to come back to their homes and live a  normal life.
“Gumatang ka ti baboy wenno baka.” (Buy pigs or a cow). Bernos urged the FRs. “It’s for your livelihood. Use it to start again please.”   Do not go back to the  life of a rebel.”
In Baguio City, two alleged NPA female members were recently arrested.
Police identified one as Camela BaƱaga Cuares, 26, of Cypress Irisan Barangay where she was nabbed for illegally possessing firearm and ammunition.
 Prior to her arrest, police said they were tipped that two female NPAs with firearms were seen in the area. Without delay, police responded and confiscated two rounds of bullets for Cal. 45 pistol, medicine plastic container, and subversive documents which were were seized inside Cuares’s room. While her companion Quennie Rose Tusi Mata was released because no evidence was proven to hold her.
