Zamboanga del Norte Gov. Roberto Y. Uy disclosed that he has received an intelligence report that communist  rebels are recruiting villagers in the municipality of Sergio Osmena after a gunbatlle with government forces  last July 14.

“ Nakadawat ko information nga mga NPA rebels ga recruit didto og  mga tao para politika og pang destabilization ingon sila,” Uy said in Visayan dialect.

Uy,  who is the chairman of the Regional Peace and Order 9,  said that all the intelligence information he had reeived are being all validated and evaluated to find its veracity.

He revealed that Sergio Osmena  is back to normal . Troopers of the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines are heavily guarding the area particularly at the boundary of Sergio Osmena and Misamis Occidental.

Uy said after the July 14 fighting, he sent relief goods and support to the people in the area and to the government forces maintaining the peace and order.

As far as the whole region is concerned, Uy said the overall situation is peaceful and manageable. — Allen Abastillas
