He had been chained by the neck for a month
Korede later told the Sunday Punch news service he did not want to return to his father and stepmother: He said: ”I was not fed regularly when I was chained. My father and my step-mother only fed me twice a day. Some days, I was not given any food. I want to go back to school because I want to be a doctor in the future. I also do not want to go back to my father’s house.”
According to the Punch, Korede’s theft of food made his father believe he was possessed by an evil spirit. He chained him in order to exorcise the ‘demon’. He is believed to have attempted an exorcism through a ritual bath in a river, with Korede still chained.
Ogun State Police Command spokesman Muyiwa Adejobi said Taiwo will be charged to court as soon as investigations are completed.
