Abra Governor Jocelyn Bernos has created Task Force Juana in response to the insurgency problems in the province.
This after the New People’s Army (NPA) were recently reported to have intensified their recruitment in Abra.
The NPA were supposedly recruiting high school students in the upland municipalities.
Task Force Juana aims to monitor and plan strategies on anti-insurgency in the province.
The Philippine army will also give a list of minors being recruited by the communists so the Abra provincial government can give them counselling services.
