The Colombian Army keeps surrounded the dissidents commanded by Walter Arizala Vernaza alias ‘Guacho’, who try to extract it due to the wounds received during the confrontation, according to Colombian media.
During the afternoon of this Sunday, in social networks there have been several comments that talk about the death of Guacho. In this regard, the Minister of the Interior of Ecuador, María Paula Romo, said that “it will be communicated in detail only when the information is official and confirmed. The Ecuadorian authorities are in permanent contact with the Colombian authorities and following instructions from President Lenin Moreno.”

Although there is no official confirmation from Colombian authorities, social networks say that the guerrilla is already dead after the two bullets he received on his back. Due to the presence of the military dissidents have not been able to remove ‘Guacho’ from the combat zone in Nariño, once this Sunday the search operation was resumed to find the whereabouts of the dissident.
Now the strong confrontations continue in the area of the municipality of Roberto Payán, in the north of Tumaco, between the Army and members of the so-called Oliver Sinisterra front of the Farc dissidences, according to Blu Radio. Apparently men commanded by alias ‘Guacho’ would have his body, what is not known is whether with or without life, and try to get him out of that sector.
According to the Colombian Army, the work is carried out as a team between the different troops of the public force.
According to data from social networks, at least 4 Colombian soldiers were killed and 23 guerrillas were neutralized. (I)
