Aisha Buhari Interested In Chained Boy’s Case, As Boy Begs Not To Be Returned To Father


The wife of Ogun State Governor, Olufunso Amosun, has said the wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari, is interested in the welfare of Korede, the nine-year-old boy, chained by his father for over a month.

She said this yesterday when she paid a visit to the boy at the Children’s Ward of the Federal Medical Centre, Idi Aba, Abeokuta.

Amosun said she was happy to see Korede recovering fast, adding that the President’s wife was interested in the welfare and speedy rehabilitation of the boy.

She said, “It is reassuring that the boy is doing well despite all what he was subjected to. We were worried that we would see a dejected and withdrawn child, but we are seeing Korede that is active with his mind alert. The mother of the nation has followed the case when it first broke and she is still following it. She (Aisha Buhari) is very passionate about it, she wants to know the boy’s condition and is compassionate about the case.”

Korede, on his own part, begged Amosun not to allow anybody to return him to his father’s house.

Korede, who was chained by his father, Francis, for over a month over allegation of stealing, was rescued last Friday by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and Ogun State Police Command.
