40yrs old Pastor Francis Taiwo of the Celestial Church of Christ who chained his son, Korede, to the altar in his church for more than a month and starved him until he went into a coma in an attempt to cast out “spirit that made the boy to steal”, has explained why he committed the heinous crime.
The father of five who hails from Benin Republic, confessed to the act in his statement to the police, adding that Korede’s mother was late.
According to him, he wanted to deliver his son from the spirit of stealing. The young boy was rescued last Friday by NSCDC officials. The father is now under investigation.
