Welcome to the forum

Unless you can diconnect the wires at the source you will need to enclose them in a box with wire nuts covering the ends of the wire.[so there no exposed wire] You will need to add lumber to the hole the cab came out of so you can fasten a small piece of sheetrock, flush with the wall. You then tape and mud where it connects. Should take about 3 coats of mud. Sand lightly after last 2. Since the smallest piece of drywall you can buy is 4'X8' check around for a house being built or remodeled. Chances are they will give you a piece of scrap big enough to do this.
