Egbeolowo said the maltreatment meted out to the youngster attracted Mrs. Amosun’s attention.

”Korede has been enrolled as a nursery one pupil in a private school with boarding facilities in the state,” he said.

Recall that Taiwo was chained by his father, Francis Taiwo, and was rescued by policemen (read here) and operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

Francis, 40, who is pastor of the Celestial Church of Christ, Key of Joy, in the Ajibawo area, had accused the boy of habitual stealing, saying he needed deliverance. He had allegedly chained his son to the altar in the church for more than a month and starved him until he went into a coma, in an attempt to cast out the supposed spirit that made the boy to steal.

The father was thereafter arrested following a manhunt launched by the police.
