The Zamboanga del Sur-based New People’s Army are in the process of recruiting new members of its Sparrow unit in Zamboanga Peninsula, according to an official of the Highway Patrol Group (HPG.)

The revived unit was reportedly responsible for the murder of two officials in Zamboanga del Sur.

“Accordingly dalawa na ang kanilang victim.  Isa ay ang Barangay Chairman ng Saad at kanyang asawa at isang nagnganganlang MSgt Solo, member ng Philippine Army,” said HPG Zamboanga del Sur Provincial Team Unit Chief, Chief Inspector Dexter L. Diones.

There are reportedly 45 new graduates who have finished training in barangay Saad, in the municipaity of Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur.

The new graduates will soon target new members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police, Diones said, quoting an unidentified asset who fed him the information.

Diones said that he advised his operatives to be on alert regarding the new development.

He explained that even though his unit is involved in the implementation of traffic and anti-carnapping laws, he values and does not disregard such information.  (Allen Abastilas)
