GOVERNMENT forces captured one of the six New People’s Army (NPA) rebels responsible in the ambush-slay attempt of a policeman in Zamboanga del Sur, the police reported Friday.

Zamboanga del Sur Police Director Sofronio Ecaldre identified the captured NPA rebel as Efren Binigay, 25, a resident of Sitio Gatian in the village of Timolan, Tigbao municipality.

Ecaldre said that Binigay was caught Thursday by the combined police and Army’s 53rd Infantry Battalion forces in a pursuit operation in the hinterlands of Tigbao.


The combined forces launched the pursuit operations after six NPA rebels ambushed Senior Police Officer 4 (SPO4) Eleazar Carcallas on Wednesday in Barangay Tigbao, Tigabao town.

Carcallas was on his way home from duty when the NPA rebels ambushed him. But he was able to put up a fight, although wounded, until reinforcement arrived, forcing the rebels to go back.

Ecaldre said that Binigay is detained at the provincial headquarters while appropriate charges are set to be filed against him.
