Assassination try by NPA vs. NTF-ELCAC officials foiled


The fight of the government to end  the local insurgency comes at a different twist as elite government forces was able to stop a plot of local communist terrorist to assassinate  government officials in the security sector, including “talking heads” of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).

National Security Adviser and the Vice Chairman of the anti-communist insurgency Task Force Hermogenes Esperon Jr. said following a shootout in Sta. Rosa City in Laguna that led to the death of three members of the New People’s Army (NPA) hit squad tasked to undertake the mission.

“One of their missions is to hit NTF-ELCAC talking heads. However, they were pre-empted. Our gratitude to our partners in NTF-ELCAC, including members of the armed forces and the police,” said Esperon.

Esperon lauded the officers and men the 202 Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division of the Philippine Army, the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF), and the Laguna Police Provincial Office for the successful operations.

Government troops swooped down on the safe house of the CTG leader shortly past midnight on May 21, 2021, in Buena Rosa Subdivision, Brgy. Macabling, Sta. Rosa City by virtue of five warrants for multiple attempted murder and murder issued by Honorable Executive and Presiding Judge Aurora V Maqueda-Roman of RTC Br 61 Gumaca, Quezon; Kidnapping with Murder w/ CC # 11-3248 and 11-3249 issued by Honorable Judge Rodolfo D Obnamia Jr of RTC Branch 64 of Mauban, Quezon.

Esperon said during the service of said WOAs, the suspect and two other members of the death squad fired upon the arresting officers, triggering a gunfight that resulted in the death of Riza; Ka Blue/Billy, the Medic/Supply Officer; and Ka Dean, the group’s intelligence officer.

Recovered from the suspects were an M16 Armalite rifle, two .45 caliber pistols, several electronic devices, and subversive documents of high intelligence value.
