Westmincom chief cites insurgency drop in Sarangani

ALABEL, Sarangani (December 19, 2020) - Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom) commander Lieutenant General Corleto Vinluan Jr. personally thanked Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon for the partnership forged with the military deployed in Sarangani Province as he pays a courtesy call on December 16 at the Capitol. Vinluan came all the way from Zamboanga to visit units in the 6th Infantry Division where he said part of his concerns was to instill among the infantry units the importance of respect to authority of the local government units. The 6ID now covers the provinces of Maguindanao, part of North Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, South Cotabato, part of Lanao del Sur, and part of Sarangani. Vinluan and Solon also talked about the anti-insurgency campaign in Sarangani to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) where Vinluan credited Solon’s leadership in making the campaign effective. “Nakikita namin ‘yung malaking improvement dito sa Sarangani. Bumaba na masyado ang insurgence dito, maraming nagsurrender,” Vinluan said. (Jake T. Narte/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
