New pictures of boy who was chained and starved by his father two years ago

You remember this story about Korede taiwo? Not many would remember the pathetic story of then nine-year-old Korede Taiwo, who was chained by his biological father, Pastor Francis Taiwo, shepherd-in-charge of the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), Key of Joy Parish, Wasinmi Ajibawo, in Ado Odo/Ota Local Council Area of Ogun State.Korede was for several weeks, confined to a small room within the church, chained in hands, legs and neck, for alleged theft of food, until luck smiled at him.He was rescued from the jaws of death, two years ago, by officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) after severe treatment and deprivation.It was exactly two years last Sunday, July 22, since the boy was rescued, following a tip-off from church members, which prompted NSCDC’s rescue operation on July 22, 2016.As at the time of rescue, he was not only frail, he was malnourished and smaller than a child of his age, dejected, withdrawn, and traumatised. He could barely speak above whispers due to exhaustion and starvation. People were forced to strain their ears to hear him.He was immediately admitted at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, for thorough medical attention, where he pleaded with the wife of the state governor, Mrs. Olufunso Amosun not to allow him go back to his father, frightening that his father might do worse things if he returns to his custody: credit Sunday
