The Police officer added that the other three were rushed to Juba Teaching Hospital.

Police appealed to parents to teach their children not to take anything from strangers.

“Parents and teachers must emphasize the dangers of forming a relationship with unknown persons. They must teach their children not to talk to or take anything from someone they don’t know,” Agot said.

Police warned that anyone found and proven, following investigations, to have purposely given anything poisonous to children will feel the full force of the law.
