The Deeper Life Bible Church has reacted to the alleged assault of one of its students in its school in Uyo, capital of Akwa Ibom.
The school said via Twitter said, it will on Tuesday address the public on the alleged assault.
“The Education Secretary of the Deeper Life High School will share some update on Don Davis Case later today,” it wrote on Twitter.
This is the first time the church is speaking on the matter after Nigerians had demanded justice for the little boy on social media yesterday.
Deborah Okezie, the mother of the 11-year-old student had claimed her son was molested by his seniors after the principal moved him to their dormitory for urinating on his bed.
She had also claimed that her son told her the senior students pushed their hands and legs into his anus while also threatening to kill him if he reported to his parents or the principal, who was recently suspended over the case.
The mother had thereafter narrated how she was attacked at the office of Enobong Mbobo, the commissioner for education in the state, who had invited her and her son for questioning on the instruction of the state government.
