CAMP GOV CHATTO, Tubigon, Bohol – A high-ranking CPP-NPA Terrorist leader was captured by joint Philippine Army-PNP operatives recently.
Pedro Lumantas a.k.a Dadoy/Andoy/Didoy was captured by the operatives of 47th Infantry “Katapatan” Battalion and Bohol-PNP by virtue of arrest warrant for multiple murder charges while getting medical treatment for gun shot wound at Ramiro Hospital in Tagbilaran City on June 16, 2018. The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Suceso A Arcamo, RTC 47, Tagbilaran City, Bohol.
Lumantas is a Deputy Secretary of Bohol Party Committee, Komiteng Rehiyon Southern Bohol of the said terrorist organization.
The said terrorist leader has been involved in the series of atrocities in Cebu and Bohol including the recent merciless killings of two (2) CAFGUs last April and May 2018. He was turned over to the PNP for proper disposition.
The 3rd Infantry “Spearhead” Division under the leadership of BGen Dinoh Dolina, believes that the arrest of Lumantas is a big blow on the extortion and terrorist activities of the CPP-NPA Terrorist. The Command attributed this accomplishment to the Boholanos who have been displaying their vigilance especially in giving accurate information on the whereabouts and activities of these terrorists.
This Command also reiterated its call to the CPP-NPAs to lay down their arms and abandon the senseless and failed armed-struggle and return to the folds of the government. “Your government is much willing to help and assist you to start a new and peaceful life together with your family.” 47IB Katapatan / MCAG
