Why would a parent starve his own child? No matter the purpose it will definitely send the child to steal to feed.
9 year old Korede Taiwo who was rescued from the Celestial Church of Christ (Key of Joy Parish), in Ajibawo area near Otta in Ogun state where his father, Prophet Francis Taiwo, chained him for weeks because of his stealing habits, says he stole because he was hungry and that he had not been well fed for four months.
“I steal because I am hungry. I have not been fed well for four months. They give me food but not all the time” he told Channels TV
When interviewed, his father Francis said;
“When I complained to my shepherds about his stealing habit, they advised I used different methods but it didn’t work. I now decided that maybe if I chain him down I will find a solution”he said.
Korede is currently in custody of the Onipanu Police station in Ogun state.
