By Anthony Vargas Reporter

Rogue soldiers are reportedly recruiting fellow soldiers in Bicol to stage destabilization efforts against the government, a senior police official said Thursday.

Senior Supt. Balligi Tira, Bicol Police chief, said that they have been receiving intelligence information that members of Magdaló group were making rounds on troops in Camarines Sur. The Army’s 9th Infantry Division is based in Pili, Camarines Sur.

“Intelligence report gathered that two alleged members of Magdaló Oakwood mutineers, are in the Bicol region to recruit members for a planned government destabilization,” Tira said in a statement.

Magdaló is a group of junior military officers that staged the short-lived Oakwood mutiny on July 27, 2003, the first recorded military uprising against the Arroyo administration.
