However, she noticed that he looked sick and had not been attended to. The mother also alleged that she noticed her son was not able to sit properly, which prompted her to check his buttocks. From the look of his anus, Okezie said her son had been sexually molested.

Giving an account of his ordeal, Davis in the video alleged that he was forced to starve for days, beaten for bedwetting and also sent to a hostel for senior students where he was sexually abused.

Reacting to this in a statement dated December 21, Deeper Life High School management stated that the alleged happenings were not tolerated in the institution and investigation was ongoing.

They added that once the investigation is over, anyone found culpable in the abuse of the child -student or teacher – “will not be spared”.

The management expressed that in the meantime, the school principal has been suspended summarily following allegations.
