Church in Ogun ‘tortures’ nine-year-old in chains for weeks

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says a nine-year-old boy was found chained for weeks at a church in Ogun state.

The boy, looking rather malnourished and gaunt, has been rescued and sent to the appropriate authority, the NSCDC said.

The corps did not state the reason the church — Celestial Church of Christ, Key of Joy Parish, Ajiwo — held the boy captive for so long.

“On the 22nd of July 2016, at about 10:30hrs at Ajibawo in Ado Odo OTA Division 2, NSCDC officers rescue a boy, named Taiwo Korede, aged nine years old, who had been chained for weeks at Celestial Church of Christ key of Joy Parish Ajiwo,” NSCDC said in a statement.


“The case has since been transfered to the appropriate authority for further investigation.”
