This is really unimaginable!
The Celestial Church of Christ has released a statement reacting to the report of one of their pastors, Francis Taiwo, who chained his nine year old son, Korede Taiwo, for weeks without food at the Key of Joy Parish, Ajiwo at Ajibawo in Ado Odo/Ota local government area of Ogun State.
In the statement released today July 25th, the leadership of the church condemned the act, stating it will never support any act of child abuse. Read the statement after the cut…
Our attention has been drawn to media reports concerning the activities of Prophet Francis Taiwo, Shepherd in Charge, Celestial Church of Christ ( C.C.C ), Key of Joy Parish, Ajiwo at Ajibawo in Ado Odo/Ota local government area of Ogun State. Prophet Francis Taiwo was reported to have chained his nine year old son and starved him of food for months, after the boy was accused of habitual stealing.
The nine year old boy was eventually rescued by men of the NSCDC who stormed the church premises for that purpose. Latest reports indicate that the culprit, Prophet Francis Taiwo was later arrested by the police with the help of his church members. This report has drawn the ire of the public and our great church has been receiving undeserved flaks therefrom. We are thus compelled to issue this statement to correct whatever misconceptions must have been created about the church, in the minds of the general public, by this shameful and totally unacceptable incident. Let it be known that the Celestial Church of Christ does not condone child abuse and violence of any form.
