Blessing said her stepmother was told at the church that the man's kids were responsible for his business misfortunes and this turned their father against them.
She said he moved them out of the main house to a poultry house where they pee, eat and sleep.
Their situation began drawing attention after residents in the area found out where they were kept.
The residents didn't however save them but only dropped food for the kids through an open space in the poultry.

Blessing said that on a certain day, one of their aunts had visited and got to know where they were kept, thanks to people in the community.
