The police in Akwa Ibom State are preparing to arraign some officials of the Deeper Life High School over the alleged sexual abuse of Don Davis, an 11-year-old student of the school.
According to PremiumTimes, David Okokon, lawyer to the parents of the abused 11-year-old student of the school said he would be in court today for the arraignment.
“They (the police) are arraigning those people found culpable, this morning,” Okokon said.
Mr MacDon, a superintendent of police, also confirmed the arrest and detention of some of the school officials.
“This morning, we are trying to tidy up (investigation), we are dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s,” Mr MacDon said. “If we are not through this morning, they will be arraigned tomorrow.”
Trouble began when the victim’s mother, Deborah Archibong, alleged that some senior students of the Deeper Life High School sexually abused her son when the school authorities switched him from his dormitory to another dormitory filled with senior students.
“They will remove his boxer and push their legs and hands into his anus,” Archibong said in a video posted on Facebook.
“Look at a child I sent to school, he came back with a broken anus,” she said, adding that her son was frequently starved and beaten up by the senior students.
The school eventually suspended the principal of the embattled Uyo campus and launched an investigation.
