The GBI National Triumvirate in 2002 when late Col Billy "NF SIERRA" Bibit was the National President were, National Supreme Godfather Commander (NSGC) Anastacio "Patton" Labitad Jr (left) , National Supreme Godfather Consultant Gil "Lapulapu" Taojo (center) and National Supreme Godmother Lilia "Amasona Buala. In this picture, Suprema Amasona was represented by P/Lt "NF Phantom" Tinoy.
In fairness, In 1984, The then Msg Leborio "MF Abraham" was not part or has any participation in the creation of the Guardians Brotherhood Inc. During this period, Mf Abraham was tasked by the then Chief of Staff Fidel V Ramos for normalizing the disbandment of the Diablo Squad Crime Buster (DSCB).
Who then led the Guardians upon its conception in Dec 10, 1984 ? To correct the history, It was late Capt Anastacio"Patton" Labitad Jr, the National Supreme Godfather Commander of the Diablo Squad Crimebuster (DSCB). The documents submitted to SEC for its registration will speak for itself.
When the DSCB was tagged as "THE ARMY WITHIN THE ARMY" in 1984, he was already leading the Diablo Squads, he was investigated by the NBI, persecuted by the Army Intelligence, his salary was forfeited for many months, his ETAD was not extended.
He was floating for almost two (2) no assignment. He was treated like an ordinary Enlisted man. He suffered to much for the DSCB and GBI. This humble man did not complain never proclaim himself as the Leader. But for one (1)week he was the banner headlines of Malaya, Daily Inquirer, Manila Bulletin, local tabloids and Television, as the leader of the Army within the Army.
For the young generations, you must know this man. From 1982 to 1984, the DSCB was crucified by the Marcos Dictatorship as a political scapegoat for the divided Armed Forces, the Ramos-Enrile and Marcos-Ver Faction. This was the Year of the Heavy Persecution, many were discharge from the Service, de - commissioned from the Officer Corps, Non-ETE, Non ETAD and forced erasures of tattoo by blade, battery solutions and cigarette burning and while many were eliminated in the battlefield as non battle casualty from the orders of their Division/Battalion intel Officers and Commanders, to name few Gen Echevarria, Gen Divinagracia and many others. . ,.,
Of course, It was Supremo Patton was our National Leader during this hard and unforgettable years. It was also this year, that the then, Capt Gil "SGF Lapulapu" Taojo was de-commissioned from the Officer Corps of the PC-INP. He did not renounced his membership of the DSCB-GBI. While Supremo Patton was branded as Old Captain of the Philippine Army, his promotion to Major was by passed for many years and was not promoted to Major for 15 years until he retired. and P/Major Lilia "Amasona" Buala retired from the PC-INP and did not received her pension, the prize of their leadership of the DSCB-GBI.
The prize of their leadership of the DSCB-GBI.
MSG Leborio "MF ABRAHAM" Jangao Jr abandoned already the ideals of he DSCB-GBI. He was the luckiest guy during the year of persecution. He was Commissioned to the Officer Corps of the PC-INP for his treacherous accomplishment of normalizing the disbandment of his DSCB in 1984. The Master Founder of the Diablo Squad Crime Buster and the one who lead its disbandment s directed by Gen Fidel Ramos.(what a traitor! ! !) And that is why Mf Abraham has no name in the creation of the GBI that followed after its disbandment.
In 1987, He brought again the GHQ Letter Directive signed by Chief Fidel V. Ramos disbanding the GBI to all the Military Camp Chapters nationwide asking the reigning subordinates Founders to follow the Chain of Command, simply because this was the year of Coup de'Etat and we are advise with stern warning to abandon the ideals of the GBI Brotherhood. This offers him (Mf Abraham) another opportunity, his promotion to next higher grade equivalent to 1LT.
And now, Why in God sake, he claimed, He was the Father of All Guardians? My God, Late Supremo Patton was three years already in his grave asking JUSTICE.
Msg Leborio "MF ABRAHAM" Jangao no doubt is the Founder of the Diablo Squad and the first twelve members of barkadan or band of brothers in Kidama PC detachment i a remote barrio of Parang, Magundanao. He is also the one responsible for the disbandment when he settled a negotiation with Gen Fidel V Ramos resulting his immediate Commissionship in the Officer Corps of the PC-INP.
Si MSg Leborio "MF ABRAHAM' Jangao ay hindi na isinama nila SGF Consultant Lapulapu, NSGF Commander Patton at iba pang liders galing Visayas at Mindanao sa pagbuo ng Guardians dahil galit sila kay Abraham bakit nakigpasundo ni Gen Ramos at pumayag na buwagin o idisband ang DSCB.
Sa umpisa hindi katangaptangap ng mga Founders at miyembro ng DSCB ang Guardians. Kaya hangang ngayon kahit tingnan mo sa kanilang kaliwang balikat wala ang tatak na Guardians. Bakit sa kaliwang balkat?
Dahil pag DSCB ka sa kaliwang balikat ang tatak na Guardians. Sige nga, subokan ninyong tingnan ang balikat ni Abraham yung kanyang balikat marumi puno sa mga bura dahil binura ang tatto ng DSCB. Dahil sa Ltr Directive na daladala ni Abraham noon na binasa nya sa amin na pirmado ni Gen F Ramos ang rason daw ay ang Diablo Squad ay may "sinister Image" kaya dapat idisband nakakasira sa imahe ng mga Sundalo. Si Supremo Patton ang namuno noon.
Si SGF Lapulapu ay umuwi na sa Mindanao dahil hindi naextend ang kanyang ETAD bilang Officer at nagconcentrate sa Small Scale Mining ng ginto sa Diwalwal at binuo niya ang DSCB pero iba na ang kahulogan, Democratic society of Crime Buster tumakbo siya nang Congressman at natalo.
Sa panahong yun, magulo ang bansa, nagkasakit ang pesidente Marcos,naghariharian ang mga cronies, may namumuong Communist takeover, nagtayo na naNg National Provisional Goverment ang CPP-NPA sabi sa report ng militar, hati ang AFP, Ramos - Enrile at Marcos - Ver Faction, rally arawraraw sa manila at EDSA dahil sa pagkamatay ni Aquino, Justice for Aquino-Justice for all.
Hindi credible ang Snap Election kailangang hindi magwatakwatak ang DSCB at napilitang tinanggap nang DSCB Founders at members ang Guardians pero hindi kaagad agad na rehistro sa SEC, sa tulong na rin late GBF ( MSG) Francisco "Barurot: Cagurangan, F/Sgt ng MND Security humingi ng tulong kay Major Gregorio B. Honasan, Chief Security ni SND Enrile at sa tulong ni Chief of Staff Ramos narehistro sa SEC ang GBI, dito nabuo ang relasyon nga Guardians sa sekritong organisasyon noon na RAM at hindi kayo mag taka halos kalahati sa DSCB-GBI naging Reformist at ang kalahati ay Marcos Loyalist na pinamunoan nuon ni SGF (Col) Raul Cabauatan kaya, HINDI NAGBARILAN ANG MGA SUNDALO NOONG EDSA REBOLUSYON.
Bago pumutok yung EDSA rebolusyon dyan sa Crame, Marines, HPA at GHQ ay may mfellowship meeting kami at napag usapan na main yun na NO SHOOT Policy kami.Kung matrieve pl ng sana ang mga file videos ng ABS-CBN na may footages na nagyakapan ang mga sundalo at nagiyakan, MGA BRO YUN mga kapatid, and this was the untold story of EDSA Revolution.
Our solemn contribution to that BLOODLESS REVOLUTION. Isa lang ang Guardians noon mga bro, BUO at DI MAHAHATI dahil may principyo at marunong magpakumbaba. Bakit ba ito hindi nakasama sa kasaysayan ay dahil na rin pagkatapos ng Revolution naglipana ang mga BALIMBING at na back stage ang mga Guardians at iba pang RAM kaya maraming coup de tat ang nangyari sa 1987 na pinamunoan ni Lt Col Gregorio"Gringo" Honasan ang RAM-GUARDIANS revolt.
The origin of GUARDIANS BROTHERHOOD that was known as DIABLO SQUAD were composed of eleven members originally, it was founded and organized on the holy Thursday of April 15, 1976 in a remote PC detachment in Brgy. Kidama Parang Maguindanao by then Sgt. LEBORIO M. JANGAO Jr. a Member of the defunct 571st PC Company, the fearsome Hunter-Style a chop of American film dirty dozen namely:

On August 1978, JANGAO's group were all reassigned to the other province of Mindanao while Leborio "Abraham" Jangao Jr. transfered to Iligan City and designed as Civil Military Operation NCO. The DIABLO SQUAD was remained until 1980 because of lack of communication. At that time, JANGAO recalled fighting between and among member of all the branches of AFP and INP. AS in the 1st DIABLO SQUAD in Kidama, again JANGAO Jr. revived the DIABLO SQUAD and founded the DIABLO SQUAD CRIME BUSTER. And the original concept of this organization was to establish a strong brotherhood among members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Integrated National Police (INP) the (14) PC enlisted men together with the other one(1) from police, one(1) from army one(1) from military police, and from "MAGIC SEVEN" composed of two(2) Fiscals and five(5) lawyers, the original civilian members of DIABLO SQUAD CRIME BUSTER (DSCB).

Capt. Gil "SGF Lapu-Lapu" Taojo,
Capt. Anastacio "SGF Patton" Labitad and

In the year 1982 the group increased up to 15,000 members coming from Major Service Command stationed in Mindanao. JANGAO was transfered to Camp Crame, and conducted recruitment of DCSB in Metro Manila particularly in Camp Crame, Camp panopio, camp Bagong Diwa, Camp Aguinaldo, Fort Bonifacio and Villamor Airbase. In 1983-84 it had already more than 30,000 members throughout the country. But in the middle part of 1984, the higher command of AFP/INP had successfully manipulated the disbandment of DIABLO SQUAD CRIME BUSTER(DSCB). To overcome the situation Founder Leborio "Abraham" Jangao Jr. listed the five(5) names for the final selection which follows:DEFENDER, PEACEMAKER, PROTECTOR, VANGUARD and GUARDIANS. Finally the DIABLO was renamed by Jangao to be called GUARDIANS BROTHERHOOD INC.(GBI). He called the brotherhood "GUARDIANS" because he has chosen as the guiding principle "SERVICE THROUGH STRONG BROTHERHOOD". Before the year ended, the GBI subsequently registered with the Security and Exchange Commission(SEC) on December 10, 1984. Along the birth of GBI founder JANGAO was conferred the rank of MASTER FOUNDER.
Then Sgt. LEBORIO M. JANGAO Jr, who was known as MASTER FOUNDER GODFATHER "ABRAHAM" (MFGF) is now a retired police Colonel and conferred the rank of GRAND MASTER FOUNDER GODFATHER "ABRAHAM"(GMFGF), the Father of all Guardians.
