The boy later revealed the whereabouts of another two boys who they had been sharing the cakes together. The two were taken out of their homes at night whereby they were punished like the first boy.
Their screams alerted some neighbours who arrived to save them. They were left to spend the night in the cold since they could not walk properly. On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, they were taken to hospital where they are currently receiving treatment. Two suspects have been arrested.
