In this world of ours you get crazy and then you get totally outrageous. Its one thing for a young boy to have a grown man as a friend it’s another for your father to purchase a grown man to be your toy and basically personal slave in simple English.
Father to young 13-year-old Skyler, Wallace Turnquist, purchased Ezekiel Akpu-nku from Nigeria as a toy and servant for his son.
The Gistpartner reports “Last year I took Sky on a hunting safari to Africa and he was delighted by the African people. How funny they were, how they were always smiling and so eager to please. At first he just wanted to take one, but I told him kidnapping was illegal. So instead, I bought him one,” Wallace Turnquist said.
We all know that in this day and age slavery is illegal; so Mr. Turnquist has apparently given Nigerian man Ezekiel a 5 year employment contract that pays $1,000 per year plus room/board, one day off per month and unlimited snacks. It’s crazy that one would be satisfied with unlimited snacks for being someone’s slave.
Like every contract Ezekiel’s contract has its terms and conditions, his contract states that Ezekiel must do everything and anything that Skyler requests him to do just as long as it is not illegal.
“This one time I made him stand on one foot for the entire day. I also made him eat a spider. He does whatever I say. He’s the best toy ever,” Skyler Turnquist said.
Apparently Skyler has already asked his father for another “African toy” but his father has said no this time around. “I don’t want Sky getting spoiled. If I buy him another African, he’ll just want more. I think owning one African is enough,” his father said.
“I’m very happy to be Skyler’s toy. In Africa I was starving, here, in the land of opportunity, my belly never go hungry,” Akpu-nku said…. God bless dt boys heart for ds kind gesture.
What do you think about Skyler’s father buying his son a grown man as a toy for him? Does having a contract make it more acceptable than slavery? Should we just look at Ezekiel as a nanny that just has more responsibilities than traditional nanny’s?
