A Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) pastor who allegedly chained his young son inside a branch of the church in Ogun State has been arrested.
Francis Taiwo, 40, apparently pastors CCC’s Key of Joy Parish in Ogun State.
Sadly, Taiwo reportedly chained his 9-year-old Korede inside the church building for weeks. Officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) rescued the boy on Friday and took him to hospital.
Taiwo has reportedly told the police why Korede had to be chained up. “I chained my son because I felt he is possessed and I’m not comfortable with his stealing habit.” According to a police source, that’s Taiwo’s explanation.
