The management of the Deeper Life High School in Akwa Ibom state has vowed not to cover up any immoral act perpetrated in the school even as it investigates the alleged sexual abuse of one of its students, Don Davis Achibong.
Deborah Okezie, mother of Don Davis has been on social media for about a week now, calling on Nigerians to help her get justice for her son. She alleged that there is a plan to coverup the story by the authorities of the school and the state government.
In a video posted online on Tuesday December 29, the Education Secretary of the school, Thelma Malaka, said the alleged act of sexual abuse is currently being investigated by the state government and the police. Malaka said the school will in no way cover up any act of immorality and that it will ensure that justice prevails.
”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”
