Rivers Police arrest parents who chained their son for stealing food

This is coming days after the case was reported on social media with the River State ministry of social welfare swinging into action to rescue the boy.

The Nigerian lady who reported the incident on social media wrote on her Facebook page on how happy she is to see the children get their freedom with hope to have a brighter future.

She wrote:

Right from the very first day I set my eyes on them, my heart clearly told me that I owe these lads but I never knew what in particular it is or could be….. I mean what can i owe lads that i never knew from Adam and are living with their parents even though they live in shanty and things are not that too okay with them, I mean in a country like Nigeria, people live in shanties and things are not also working too fine for them. Ever since then, my heart was knitted with theirs and I was doing the little

I could thinking perhaps, that’s it. I never knew it was bigger than that. I never knew it was to liberate their souls. Never knew that their Creator has heard their heart groaning as children.

I can only but thank God for finding me worthy for such a great and daring assignment. Gratitude to Rivers State ministry of social welfare and FIDA
