The Deeper Life Bible Church says it will on Tuesday address the public on the alleged assault of one of its students in its school in Uyo, capital of Akwa Ibom.
“The Education Secretary of the Deeper Life High School will share some update on Don Davis Case later today,” it wrote on Twitter.
The church is speaking on the matter for the second time — hours after some Nigerians had demanded justice for the little boy on the microblogging platform.
TheCable Lifestyle earlier reported how Deborah Okezie, the mother of the 11-year-old student, 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.
