The management of Deeper Life High School in Akwa Ibom State has suspended the principal of the school Solomon Ndidi over the alleged molestation of one of the pupils.
A parent Deborah Okezie whose son is a junior secondary school one student had in a Facebook video alleged that her son was starved, as well as molested by some senior pupils of the school.
Okezie said her son told her that the principal of the school moved him to the senior pupils’ hostel for urinating on his bed, adding that the senior pupils molested him by pushing their hands and legs into his anus and threatened to kill him if he reported to the principal or his mother.
The mother noted that when she reported to the principal, he promised to move the 11-year-old boy back to the junior hostel but reportedly failed to do so.
A statement on Monday by the school management said the principal had been suspended to allow investigation.
