In a report to Bulacan Police Director Col.

The 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company (PMFC) leader Lt. Col. Laurente Acquit, said joint elements of 2nd PMFC, Bulacan 1st PMFC, PIU Bulacan PPO, PIT Bulacan, 70th IB, and DRT MPS facilitated the voluntary surrender of “Ka Brando.”

The former rebel is now under the custody of the 2nd PMFC for documentation and debriefing.
