MALUNGON, Sarangani (February 7, 2022) – (From left) Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon talks with BGen. Allan D. Hambala, acting commander of the 10th Infantry (Agila) Division, Col. Alexi Musñgi, and BGen. Potenciano C. Camba during the Change of Command Ceremony at Camp Agaab Jr., Sitio Pulatana, Malandag on February 3. Solon commended the efforts of Camba for the two years of leadership and service he has rendered in Sarangani as the Brigade Commander of the 1002nd Infantry (Bagwis) Brigade and the 10th Infantry (Agila) Division, Philippine Army. During his term as the Brigade Commander of the 1002nd Brigade, his leadership made an impactful contribution particularly on the subsidence of the insurgency in some areas of the province. In his talk, Camba reported the major accomplishments of the 1002nd Brigade including the neutralization of more than 5,000 Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) “including high ranking individuals” of the communist terrorist groups, expropriation of 214 pieces of high and low powered firearms, 60 improvised explosive devices (IED) and other wild materials that composed the instrument of terror of the communist terrorist groups. Under his leadership, the 1002nd Brigade has also successfully dismantled three guerilla fronts and weakened one guerilla front of the Far South Mindanao Regional Committee. “All these accomplishments through the collaborative efforts of the Philippine Army, the LGUs and the community, mean that our AOR is peaceful and is now ready for investments which also means that our LGUs can now deliver basic services to the communities without fear to the communist NPA,” Camba said. Solon also congratulated Col. Musñgi as the new 1002nd Brigade Commander and assured for a “firm support” for all the future operations of the 1002nd Brigade under his leadership.
