MANILA, Philippines - A datu in Surigao del Sur lost his firearm to suspected communist rebels who posed as Army soldiers last Thursday.

A Caraga police report issued Friday said the victim, identified as Datu Eusebio Grol Meniano, was in his house when four armed men in Army uniform approached him at about 5:20 a.m.

Meniano, however, sensed that the armed men were not soldiers since they were wearing black rubber boots, not the prescribed Army leather boots.

The victim went to the bathroom and ran out of his house to evade the armed men.

When he returned home, he found that his personal belongings were scattered on the floor and discovered that his CQA cal 5.56 Norinco high-powered rifle inside his vault was gone.

The Caraga police believes the suspects were members of a local New People’s Army unit under a certain alias “Rodel.” – Catalina Madarang
