The Senate has requested the Philippine National Police (PNP) and National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to find the provider of the missing 1,004 AK-47 rifles, which apparently wound up in the possession of New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in Mindanao.
During the knowing about the Senate advisory group on open request led by Sen. Ronald dela Rosa, PNP and NBI authorities said they have no data about the whereabouts of Isidro Lozada, proprietor and owner of Caraga Security Agency, supposed to be the “focal figure” in the missing rifles.
The Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong, then, at that point head of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), told the board that Lozada showed up at his office in February 2014.

Magalong said Lozada conceded that he sold the attack rifles to NPA purchasers for P52,000 each, in tranches of 30 to 50 units for every exchange in business sectors, transport terminals, ocean and air terminals from 2011 to 2013. The PNP officials denounced for the situation drove by resigned general Gil Meneses denied any cooperation in the exchanges.
Consequently, Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said those behind the supposed offer of powerful weapons to the NPA ought to be rebuffed. That supposed deal happened numerous years prior before I turned into the guard boss. Assuming valid, I trust the offenders are rebuffed.
The blood of officers, cops and regular folks killed by the NPAs with those guns is in their grasp. Morever, The supposed deal to the NPA of the AK-47 rifles purchased by the PNP as far back as 2011 was found after more than 40 of the firearms were recuperated in a progression of conflicts with socialist renegades in the Caraga and Western Mindanao locales.
