CABARROGUIS, Quirino, April 13 (PIA)—The 86 Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army based in Jones, Isabela and in Nagtipunan, Quirino has embarked on a series of security awareness fora in Maddela and Jones secondary schools.


Lt Col Jose Vladimir R. Cagara, commanding officer, said the series of fora aims to inform the students about the programs and advocacies of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.


Cagara said through the conduct of such activities, youth's awareness about the ongoing activities of the New People’s Army in Maddela such as the recruitment of members from the youth sector will be heightened.


He said hundreds of  students and teachers from the Maddela Comprehensive High School, Dipintin National School and Dumabato Integrated School and Isabela State University in Jones, Isabela attended the series of fora.


“We believe that by educating  the youth about the government’s programs and enlightening them about some misleading information,  they will not become an easy  prey for  propaganda,” the commanding officer said as he urged the parents and teachers to guide them as the NPA groups are using some issues just to  lure the youth to join the organization.


He recalled that the members of the NPA are openly recruiting  would-be members by hanging tarpaulins in public places urging the youth to join the organization.


In the PNP’s Talakayan sa Isyung Pulis radio program, the Quirino Provincial Public Safety  Company 2nd Maneuver  Platoon based in Dipantan, Nagtipunan headed by Police Chief Inspector Jaime Benedicto, Jr. has reported that some pieces of paper bearing messages of inviting residents to become members of the NPA were scattered  in front of their camp recently.


Both the 86 IB and the 2nd Maneuver Platoon  assured that they have strengthened their programs to ensure peace and security as they also urged the residents to report to authorities any untoward incidents to pre-empt any plans to sow terrorism in their places. (ALM/TCB/PIA 2-Quirino)
