CJNG announces its arrival in Tepalcatepec; says their war is against “El Abuelo” Farías
Tepalcatepec, Michoacán.- A heavily armed group that identifies as members of CJNG, announced its arrival in the municipality of Tepalcatepec, in the Tierra Caliente region of Michoacán
Through a video broadcast on social networks, a command of 18 men ensures that the fight is not against the population of the municipality located 250 kilometers from Morelia, the state capital, but against “El Abuelo”.

On behalf of the armed subjects, one of the members affirms that they belong to the group of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias “El Mencho”, leader of the Cartel Jalisco New Generation C and warns that the war will be against the “El Abuelo” cartel and every person who “raises a gun” in support of him.
The spokesman for the armed civilians explains that the conflict with “El Abuelo” Farías arose since he supported another subject referred to as “El Poncho” de Los Reyes” [Alfonso Fernández Magallón].
In the video, civilians are exhibited in military-type uniforms and high-power weapons, including a barret.
