Another young Maute/ISIS fighter identified as a.k.a AJ surrendered to the troops of the 49th Infantry “Good Samaritan” Battalion in Butig, Lanao del Sur on Tuesday (November 13, 2018).
A.k.a AJ is a 15 year old fighter who was recruited by his cousins, the Maute brothers, last 2014 in the Municipality of Butig.
He was trained with 12 other members, one of which surrendered to the troops of the 49IB on October 29, 2018.
“I encourage the remaining young fighters to surrender. It is never too late to return to the folds of the law and begin with a life full of freedom and peace,” said Lieutenant General Arnel B. Dela Vega.
