Children of an Overseas Filipino worker in Dubai died in the hands of their own mother.
Mostly what we heard in the news is the father taking advantage or abusing their children while their mother is away from home, but not this time. An Overseas Filipino worker’s father grieves as his children were killed by his wife while he works hard for their future in Dubai. It is said that while the OFW works hard for their family in Dubai, his wife was addicted to illegal drugs, the reason for her to kill their children.
According to the police report in GMA News, the mother covered the face of her 5-year-old child, causing her to suffocate to death. And when she saw the eldest, 11-year-old child she immediately attacked and stabbed him asking who he is. The child obtained 20 stab wounds all over his body and in critical condition.
While in jail, the mother insisted that a ‘mangkukulam’ is the one responsible for the crime happened inside their house in Rizal, Laguna.
“May bumubulong talaga sa amin. Sinasalitaan po niya ako para pong ako’y inuutusan niya ng inuutusan. Tapos sobrang takot ko na ‘yung mga bata mamamatay. Sabi niya papatayin daw po niya. Isasama daw po niya ‘yung mga anak ko,” stated the mother.
However, the police authorities said that the mother is the real suspect based on the statement of her child who survived the crime.
“Bigla na lang po siyang sinugod ng kaniyang ina at pinagsasakak po ng gunting. Natanong ko po kung ano sinasabi ng kaniyang ina o ano pa ang mga nangyayari noong mga oras na ‘yon. Ang sabi sa akin ng bata, tinatanong daw po siya ng kaniyang ina habang siya’y sinasaksak kung sino siya, ‘Sino ka? Sino ka? Ikaw ay manananggal,” said Police Staff Sergeant Jose Belen, Chief Investigator, Rizal, Laguna PNP.
He also added that before the crime happened, the mother used illegal drugs, based on the used drugs paraphernalia they saw in their bathroom. Cases of parricide and frustrated parricide were filed against the mother.
