“It is a clear manifestation that the residents from North to South of Guihulngan City are willing to help the government in promoting peace and security in Guihulngan City. I sincerely appreciated the residents of Brgy Calupa-an for giving valid and true information on the presence of this personality to the AFP and PNP. Once again, I am calling the remaining CNTs to surrender, lay down their arms, and avail government programs, especially the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program or E-CLIP. Be with your family in your own home and not in jail. Together, we will bring peace and development in Central Negros”- LTC MELVIN N FLORES INF (GSC) PA, Battalion Commander, 62IB, 3ID, PA.
