A year after he was rescued from bondage, Korede Francis has appeared in a picture looking hale and hearty.
Francis had been chained and starved by his cleric father, who accused him of being ‘possessed by the spirit of stealing’. He was, however, rescued by officers attached to Ogun State Police Command, Onipanu division and subsequently adopted by the wife of the state governor, Mrs Olufunso Amosun.
The father said he was instructed by his pastor to chain the innocent boy on his neck for several years without giving him any food and water to eat and drink. The father and the pastor combined to take custody of the poor boy and chained him inside the church, the boy was maltreated without being given any care or attention by anybody.
When the boy was rescued by security men:
Fortunately, for the boy, some people who live very close to the church heard noises of the boy who is always in pain, and they decided to inform the law enforcement agency about the strange sounds of the boy that come out of the church. The police came and rescued the boy, his father and the 40-year-old pastor were also arrested and taken to the police station for interrogation
The boy was then taken to the hospital for special treatment. The wife of the governor of the State heard about the incident and decided to adopt the child. She paid his hospital bills and took him home, she promised to sponsor his education till he graduates from the university.
A year after he was rescued and adopted by the governor’s wife, a picture of the boy surfaced online where he was looking very agile and healthy. Kudos to the governor’s wife for not letting the poor boy die in the hands of his wicked father and the fake pastor.
