It is gathered that before he was offered the goodies, he was made to clean a dirty gutter with his bare hands after which he was given the food to eat.

He was then made to bath and changed his clothes with the new ones.

The thief is said to be treated like a king even though he did something that society frowns on.

He was given four balls of banku with fish and surprisingly, he finished it all, a sign to indicate that he was starving and was on the verge of death.
