Abad was a resident of Kabayanan, Bontoc and suspected of being a member of the Pulahan cult. In the morning of the aforementioned date the 60-year-old, who was armed with a bolo and probably under the influence of alcohol, suddenly shouted "fight" and then began hacking people who were sleeping on the ground and second floor of the Lipata Ferry Terminal, while waiting for the ferry to Liloan.
Most of his victims suffered minor wounds, among them eight members of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines who were on their way to the National Jamboree in Leyte, though one security guard was brought to Caraga Regional Hospital with life threatening injuries. Abad eventually retreated into the comfort room and resisted arrest, but was subdued by more than a dozen security guards and police. He was then brought to city jail to wait for his psychiatric examination.
