REELING from the violence of rebel groups, the army is asking for the setup of a Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit (Cafgu) station in Sagada town.

General Leopoldo Imbaga of the 503rd Infantry Brigade is recommending the formation and installation of Cafgu in the town dubbed as a peace zone to deter any attacks by rebel groups.

Imbaga during the RPOC meeting in Ifugao said the declaration of a peace zone in the area has long been violated owing 162 attacks since 2010.

A resolution from the RPOC condemning the recent attack in Sagada is also in order in a bid to secure peacekeeping efforts of government forces in the town.

On June 5, a police officer was killed while nine others were hurt during a shootout when personnel from the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 15 and Mountain Province Provincial Mobile Force Company, who were conducting peacekeeping operations, encountered an undetermined number of armed rebels at Mt. Sipitan, Barangay Aguid.
