Akwa Ibom Police investigates reported sexual assault in Deeper Life High School
The Akwa Ibom State Police Command, on Tuesday, commenced an investigation into the alleged molestation, starvation and sexual abuse of one Don Davies, a JSS1 student of Deeper Life High School, Idoro Road Uyo, by some students and management of the School.
The command assured a discreet investigation that would unravel the truth.
The mother of the boy, Deborah Archibong, had raised alarm over her 11-year-old son’s abuse, which is now trending on social media.
The video on social media caught the attention of the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, who ordered the former Commissioner of Education Mrs Enobong Mbobo to investigate the complaints and report to the government for necessary action.
Last week, International Human Right Groups waded into the matter while Akwa Ibom State Government withdrew for police to investigate the incident .
However, the Police Public Relations Officer in the State, SP Odiko Macdon in a statement on Tuesday, said the command received a petition from the victim’s mother and commenced investigations immediately.
