A new twist to the alleged molestation story at the Deeper Life High School, Uyo has emerged with one of the accused seniors squealing on the incontinency of the alleged victim, 11-year-old Don Davis.
GWG reports that Master Davis was allegedly sexually molested by seniors in his school hostel who according to the mum inserted their hands in his anus.
Davis had alleged that one of the seniors in the Deeper Life High School, Uyo, including Shalom and Ola assaulted him and threatened him not to report to the authorities.
Shalom, a 13-year-old SS1 student who is from Ekiti State in his own response to the allegation denied the claims saying that their boarding master, Nseabasi Joseph asked him and Ola to take care of Don-Davis who according to him had particular challenges including bed wetting.
“Don-Davis was my bunkmate. I resumed at the school on November 1, 2020, to meet him as my bunkmate. But I was told that he was removed from the Junior Students Hostel and put in the Senior Students Hostel because the boarding master of junior school, Mr Akpan, was sick.
“We (Ola and I) did not bully him. I did not molest him. The boarding master, Joseph Nseabasi, asked us to make sure he was always clean because when he pooped or peed on himself, he didn’t clean up. And when he smelled, and we asked him if he defecated, he would say no.
“But when we asked him to pull down his boxers and bend down, we would discover that he defecated without cleaning his anus. We would now ask him to go and take his bath or clean himself. And when we noticed that his clothes were smelling, we would tell him to go and wash the clothes, but he would refuse. Instead, he would go and put the smelly clothes in his cupboard.”
Shalom further disclosed that Don-Davis was returned to the Junior Students Hostel of the Deeper Life High School, Uyo after the house master returned before the end of the term on December 19, 2020.
Shalom in the statement also disclosed that the house master was the one who helped Don Davis to brush his teeth, bathe him and wash his clothes
“Mr Akpan used to wash his clothes, bathe him. He also helped him to brush his teeth.”
“Mr Akpan returned to School before school closed on December 19, 2020. When he returned, Don-Davis was also moved back to his former hostel. He was moved to the Senior Students Hostel because when Mr Akpan was sick, the Junior Students Hostel did not have a boarding master. He was moved out of our hostel on November 15.”
Asked of the reaction of the principal of the Deeper Life High School, Shalom said:
“Don-Davis reported us to the school principal, (Mrs Ndidi Solomon, already suspended) that Ola and I bullied him. The principal invited us to her office and told us that she was going to punish us. Even when we tried to explain things to her, she refused to listen. But she did not punish us.”
Shalom’s father Olusegun Omoniyi is also strongly standing by his son saying:
“So, when I saw the story and the alleged involvement of my son, I decided to call my son and ask him why he bullied and molested the boy, but he said he did not do such a thing.
“I cannot force my son to tell a lie. And I also allowed him to make a statement to the police last Thursday.
“I am not worried about anything because I believe that my son is telling the truth and I know the truth will prevail, no matter how long it takes. In fact, the whole story is too shallow for me to believe.”
