Father records video of him abusing his kids, sends it to OFW wife
In one of the disturbing videos, a little girl can be seen with rope wrapped around her mouth.
The husband of an OFW working in Kuwait made a video wherein he can be seen beating up and hurting his own children. In one of the videos, his daughter can be seen struggling to remove rope that was wrapped around her mouth.
Another video showed the man hitting his son as well as his daughters. The videos quickly became viral and was shared online by concerned netizens seeking justice for what the man did to his children.
It was because of jealousy
According to reports, the video was intentionally recorded by the father, and was sent to his wife who is currently working as an OFW in Kuwait in order to force her to go back to the Philippines. The father was jealous, and was also accusing his wife of cheating on him with another man.
The videos went viral online and authorities were quick to respond to the incident.
The family was from Barangay Batomelong, General Santos City.
2 children have been rescued
Members of the local barangay, DSWD, as well as the police conducted an operation last Monday, October 23, to rescue the children from their abusive father.
However, only 2 out of the children have been rescued, a 9-year-old named "Nene" and a little girl named "Baby". The girls will be placed in the custody of the DSWD. Thankfully, the girls don't have any injuries and appear to be safe.
The son was taken by the suspect and authorities are now on a manhunt for the two. The barangay office is reaching out to the father to surrender quietly so that the situation will not escalate further.
