The way the electronics are set up in the ignition are when you turn it to run it engages the starter for the engine. When you release the key to the run position there is a relay in the column to keep the car running, check that

The ignition module has failed and needs to be replaced. The ignition cylinder turns the ignition module which is behind that. You may need to remove the steering column cover to get to the module. Consult a technician to take care of this since it is costly if done wrong.

It sounds like you have a damaged ignition cylinder. Holding it must make the circuit and keep the engine running. You should remove it and have anew one installed. It sounds pretty dangerous.
