The nine-year-old boy who was chained and left to die by his clergy father in Ogun State last year, has been transformed into a healthy and handsome young chap after he was adopted by the wife of the state Governor, Dr. [Mrs.] Olufunso Amosun, lending credence to the fact that true love can truly heal.

The young boy, Korede, was allegedly chained by his father, Pastor Francis Taiwo, for several months inside his church in the Ado-Odo Ota area of the state on the allegation that the boy was possessed and he wanted to flush the demons out of him.

Taiwo, a pastor of the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), Key of Joy Parish, in Ajibawo, was arrested after neighbours reported the matter to the police who swiftly moved in to rescue the boy who was seriously malnourished due to starvation and brutalization meted out to him by his father in conjunction with his step mother.

Mrs. Amosun who was moved to tears at the condition of the poor boy immediately adopted him and made sure he got adequate medical attention as well as quality education and today, Korede is not only full of life but very bubbly and cheerful.

A Personal Assistant to Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Adebayo Ogundairo posted photos of the transformation of Korede on his Facebook page with the before and after pictures of the chap with the following comments:
