Five persons, including the principal and vice principal of Deeper Life High School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, have been remanded in prison custody by the State High Court over the alleged sexual molestation of an 11-year-old student of the school, named Don Davis.
Recall that months ago, Don Davis’ mother, Deborah Okezie called out management of the school via a Facebook live video.
She narrated how her son went to the boarding school as a chubby boy and allegedly returned home almost a skeleton as a result of alleged sexual abuse and other ill treatments allegedly meted on him by some of the school’s senior students and staff.
Serving an update on the case, Deborah said the school principal, vice principal, house masters and others were remanded in prison custody by a court.
She also revealed that the judge ruled that the two accused students (minors) will be tried in a Juvenile family Court, while the remaining five accused persons will be tried in an open Court.
