Deeper Life High School has reacted to the allegations that a JSS 1 student was molested in the Akwa Ibom branch of the school.
In a video that went viral on social media, a mother interviewed her child who had just returned home from school and he opened up about some of the abuses he was allegedly subjected to.
According to her kid, he was forced to starve for days, beaten for bedwetting and also sent to a hostel for senior students where he was also abused.
Deeper Life High School management has now responded — in a statement, the school’s management said such is not tolerated in the institution and investigation is ongoing.
They added that once investigation is over, anyone found culpable in the abuse of the child-student or teacher – “will not be spared“.
They added that in the meantime, “the school principal has been suspended summarily“.
