When the police officers came and approach him, he was suddenly forced to kneel down. Then Kian realized that he is now the victim of being falsely accused of being involved in narcotics peddling in the area. Kian begged for his life to let the police free him while the officers are busy containing him as part of the "Oplan Galugad" campaign under the initiative of President Rodrigo Duterte. The incident negatively tarnished the reputation of anti-narcotics campaign by the Duterte administration.

Kian's mother, Lorenza begged for her employers just to allow her to return home after knowing that her son was the latest victim of anti-narcotics injustice made by the scalawags cops in front of her home. Upon arriving home, all she could do is to beg for forgiveness as she was not around when the incident happened.

The police officers involved in the incident were then relieved from their post and waiting for a thorough investigation. The Philippine National Police is now investigating the incident and vows to apprehend the scalawags if proven guilty from their negligent act.
