The ABC Group is a DI Listed active PPAG, as of June 30, 2021, led by Abdulwaris Guinomla Zailon and two other members identified as Rahib Paguilidan Salim, 34, years old, resident of Barangay Pusaw, Shariff Saydona, Mustapha, Maguindanao and a certain a.k.a. Combo.
Out of their eagerness to surrender and clear their names in the DI-List of PPAGs and also giving their locality a better peace and order for this coming 2022 election, they also surrendered their firearms: a. One Colt Cal .45 pistol with SN 384438 with two live ammunition; b. One Caliber .38 revolver with two live ammunitions; and c.

With them are two M79 Grenade Launchers without a serial number; one M79 GL with three live ammunition; one RPG with one live ammunition; and one IED fashioned with 81mm mortar.
Their surrender is the result of a collaborative effort of RIU15, RID, PROBAR, PIU, Maguindanao PPO, 1ST Mechanized Bn, 1st Mechanized Bde, PA; CIDG-RFU BAR; 1402ND RMFC; and RMFB 14, PRO BAR.
