The parents of an 11-year-old boy who was allegedly abused sexually in Deeper Life High School, Akwa Ibom State, have demanded N100m compensation for the molestation their son was subjected to in the school.
According to the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Iniobong Archibong, they demanded compensation from the school for subjecting their child, Don Davis, to gross child abuse, palpable molestation, serial bullying, criminal starvation, malicious oppression, and dubious maltreatment.
In a letter sent through their lawyers, Eagle-Eyes Network Chambers, and signed by David Okon, dated December 22, 2020, and addressed to the principal of the school, the parents gave the school 21 days ultimatum to pay the 100m compensation.
They also asked the school to publish an unreserved apology in two national Newspapers and any other two local newspapers circulated within Akwa Ibom State and its environs.
It read in part, “We are solicitors to Mr. and Mrs, Iniobong Archibong, resident in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and hereinafter referred to as our client. We have the firm explicit and unequivocal instructions to write to you on the above subject matter.
“It is indeed provocatively heartbroken, morally suicidal and religiously hypocritical that our client’s 11-year-old son was torrentially bombarded with physical and inhuman torture of debilitating dimension with resultant castration of his human person, dignity and childhood innocence.
“We respectfully demand the payment of N100,000,000 within 21 days of the receipt of this letter as compensation to assuage the dehumanising, horrendous torture and indignity our client’s son was subjected to and for his medical checkup and medication.
“We demand that Deeper Life High School, Idoro, Uyo, publish an unreserved apology to our clients in two national Newspapers; PUNCH, THISDAY, and any other two local newspapers circulated within Akwa Ibom State and its environs.”
