Emano said the provincial government has distributed 36-square-meter lots to each of the 184 families, most of them fishermen, in a 1.5-hectare lot in Lugait.

He said that the provincial government bought the lot at P700,000 after the residents in the coastal village of Calangahan figured in a bloody confrontation when the town sheriff served a writ of demolition on December 4, 2013.

The residents resisted the writ of demolitionwhich sparked in a bloody confrontation with the anti-riot police, resulting in the death of Nixon Tonga, 35. A bullet of unknown caliber hit Tonga when an unidentified assailant fired a gun during the confrontation.

Emano said he went to Lugait at the height of the confrontation to appease the residents and promised the settlers of a suitable relocation site that will not hinder their means of livelihood.

“I hope that with a permanent lots and dwellings, the residents of Calangahan will now find peace of mind and that they could now focus on their economic activities without fear of being harassed by anyone else,” Emano said.
