‘NPA lovers’ nabbed for various crimesPosted on
DAVAO CITY — Authorities arrested on Monday two members of the New People’s Army (NPA) who are live-in partners for various crimes, including homicide and robbery.
Brig. Gen. Marcelo Morales, identified the arrested suspects as Ricardo Bisaya, 26, a resident of Tarragona, Davao Oriental, and Lovely Jane Seroño, 22, a resident of Lupon, Davao Oriental.
Morales said a team of policemen and Army soldiers arrested the pair in Pantukan town, Compostela Valley province, on the strength of a warrant of arrest issued by the regional trial court in Lupon, Davao Oriental, for kidnapping, robbery, and homicide.
Morales called on the other rebels to go back to the fold of the law, including those with standing arrest warrants.
“We ask you to go down and surrender and give peace a chance so that you can go back to your respective families happily and peacefully especially that the yuletide season is approaching,” Morales said.
“For the NPA remnants, we are doing this because we wish to see our country free from fear, violence, and extremism,” he added.
The suspects are now under the custody of Lupon municipal police station for documentation. -PNA
