Sherrif Caballes was tasked to implement a court-ordered demolition in Capitol Site. Based on the court order, that was subject for clearing was only Lot 6085-A-1, which was previously owned by the heirs of a certain Mauricio Quijada before it was reportedly bought by a private firm. The property has a total land area of 9,642 square meters (sq. m.).

However, Caballes allegedly ordered his men to include in the demolition structures that were built on the lot owned by the National Government. The property is around 4,728 sq. m and has an estimated land value of P200 million. A certification issued by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, dated Sept. 10, 2015, states that the property is “alienable and disposable,” meaning it is owned by the government.

The families who were victims of the said demolition sought the help of the Cebu City Mayor's intervention.

As seen on the viral video, Mayor Osmeña accused Sherrif Cabales for allegedly failing to show Guanzon a copy of the technical description of the property subject for clearing when the village chief first attempted to settle the dispute. 

Brgy. Captain Guanzo was quoted as saying “He was headstrong and did not listen to me. In fact, he even ordered his men to take down the tents of the barangay. He has no respect for authority, not even the barangay captain. That’s why I’m grateful that the mayor intervened because without him, we would have hundreds of arbitrarily displaced families,” Guanzon told reporters yesterday.
