Deeper Life High School Management has promised to unveil any unscrupulous act committed in the school as it conducts a thorough investigation into the alleged sexual abuse of one of the students, Don Davis Achibong.
Recall that the mother of Don Davis, Deborah Okezie took to social media to call out the school and also ask for help Nigerians to seek justice for her son who was molested and subjected to heinous acts. According to her, the school authority has planned to cover up the story.
Meanwhile, the Education Secretary, Thelma Malaka was seen in a video which was shared on Tuesday, December 29 saying that the immoral act is under investigation by the state government and the police. She also ensured that justice will surely prevail.
”Permit me to remind you that the office of the governor of Akwa Ibom state has taken over the investigation of the matter to ensure neutrality and a dispassionate outcome. We appreciate the concerned effort of everyone who has shown support in the investigation thus far.
We reiterate that we will be transparent and that justice will not only be served, it will be seen by all that it has been served.
Recall that we had earlier suspended the principal of the affected campus and initiated an investigation into the matter. We decided to restrain ourselves after the first update because we thought it is subjudice to comment on a matter that is currently under investigation.
However, considering the potential impact of this issue, especially on what we stand for, we are compelled to provide an early update before the final report is released by the government.
The panel has sat and we have presented staff members and students of our school who have been mentioned in this particular case all through the period of the investigation.
We have unflinching confidence in our God to resolve the issue such that at the end, the truth will ultimately prevail.
The police is also currently investigating this matter and we have been invited to share our own side of the story.
We will like to restate that Deeper Life High School stand on the core values of integrity and uprightness and will not attempt to cover up any immoral act under any guise”
