Saturday, November 5 at around 4am, Mayor Espinosa was killed inside his cell in Baybay City, Leyte after CIDG barged into his cell.
“Ayaw gyud ko ninyo plantere, sir, wa ko armas nga gitago (Please do not plant evidence sir, I’m not hiding any firearms),” Espinosa was heard saying before gunshots rang out.
Bardillon said that jail guards tried to prevent the CIDG team from entering the jail because no search warrant was provided.
“They heard gunshots fired inside the cell of Espinosa where the slain mayor was begging (for his life) from the CIDG operatives,” Bardillon said.
He also said that the four policemen who accompanied the CIDG team simply stood there.
“They could do nothing but simply observe. Otherwise, malaking gulo,” Bardillon said.

Meanwhile, the CIDG team was already grounded for investigation.
“On orders of the CIDG director, they are directed to stay in their respective offices to make themselves available for any queries (about the raid) from competent authority who has official interests in the case,” PNP spokesman Senior Superintendent Dionardo Carlos said.
