The AFP leadership applauds the operating troops of the 403rd Brigade under Philippine Army’s 4th Infantry Division for the successful combat operations on October 30, 2021 that led to the demise of top NPA leader, Jorge Madlos.
Madlos also known as ‘Ka Oris’ was the commander and spokesperson of the NPA’s national operations command and spokesperson of the National Democratic Front in Mindanao.
He was wanted for criminal cases such as murder, multiple murders with double frustrated murder, and robbery with double homicide and damage to properties.
Ka Oris was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of soldiers and civilians for decades as he perpetuated a violent armed struggle that struck terror to our people who only desire peace in solving our country’s problems.
His death will deter the activities and plans by the NPA for he can no longer direct the communist terrorists’ violent actions against our people.
This is a major blow to the Communist Terrorist Group in Mindanao, and will usher in eventual peace in the region.
The AFP calls on the remaining leaders and members of the communist armed movement, who have been misled to this senseless cause, to surrender and return to the fold of law and eventually join the path towards peace and development in our country
