The Deeper Life High School has vowed not to cover up any “immoral act” in its Uyo campus in the aftermath of the alleged sexual abuse of an 11-year-old boy by some senior students of the school.
The Akwa Ibom State government also said it is set to release a report of its investigation into the matter.
Thelma Malaka, the school’s education secretary, who spoke through a video uploaded on Twitter, Tuesday, said the school would be transparent in its handling of the allegation.
“We will like to state that Deeper Life High School stands on the core values of integrity and uprightness and will not attempt to cover up any immoral act under any guise,” Thelmasaid.
This is the second time the school has commented on the sexual abuse story after its earlier statement announcing the suspension of Ndidi Solomon, the principal of the Uyo campus, and the launch of an investigation into the allegation.
Thelma said the school restrained itself from making comments since the matter was under investigation.
The police in Uyo, according to her, interrogated the parties involved in the allegation. She said the interrogation was, however, adjourned because of the holidays.
Thelma asked members of the public to be on the lookout for a report of the investigation which would be released by the Akwa Ibom State government.
“We have unflinching confidence in our God to resolve the issue such that at the end the truth will ultimately prevail,” she said.
