Children in viral video identified: Police

Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officers have positively identified the children seen in a video depicting a dangerous scenario causing harm to another child.

Officers have established that the act was an attempt to gain social media popularity.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Crime (ACP) Mesake Waqa said Cyber-crime officers were able to trace the origins of the video, with subsequent information revealing it was recorded in Nabouwalu.

He said a team was in Nabouwalu and was able to locate the children, where they were brought in with their parents.

“The child who was seen being buried, is safe and well.”

ACP Waqa said it has been confirmed that the children were trying to gain social media popularity by copying a popular social media personality.

The head of Crime Division is pleading with parents to know what their children are accessing online and to limit screen time.

He added the day that the alleged video was captured, the children were supposed to be at a church camp, and the situation could have taken a tragic turn, reiterating the importance of teaching children that actions have consequences.
