Ever since MCO started, statistics have shown a disturbing increase of abuse cases happening at home. It is even more heartbreaking when the victims are defenceless children.
Yesterday (Tuesday, 13th April), an upsetting video showing 2 young kids being abused mercilessly went viral online. It is suspected that the father had recorded himself while taking his anger out on his children.
In the clip, a man with a knife was shown stomping and kicking the kids as they cried out in pain. At one point, the abuser even tried to strangle them with his foot by suffocating their necks. He can be heard uttering the words, “Mati, mati” (Die, die).
According to Berita Terkini, the incident took place in Kunak District in the Tawau Division of Sabah. Word on the street has it that his wife had recently filed for divorce and left him. Out of anger, he took it out on the helpless children.
The admin from Orang Kunak’s Facebook received word from a neighbour that the man had fled the scene. Police are now reportedly on the lookout for him. Thankfully, the kids are now with their grandmother.
