Lt. Col. Joseph R. Sta. Cruz, 2nd PMFC head, identified the ex-rebel surrenderee as “Ka Arthur”, 34, of Sitio Calo, Barangay Bunga, Carranglan, Nueva Ecija.

“Ka Arthur” formerly operated as Squad S4 under the Josefino Corpuz command way back in 2004-2005, also gave up a homemade 12-gauge shotgun with the magazine and two live bullets at the PMFC headquarters in Bgy. San Juan.
