Mr. and Mrs. Iniobong Archibong, parents of the 11-year-old Don-Davies Archibong, JSS1 student of Deeper Life High School, Idoro Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, have reportedly demanding to be compensated to the tune of One Hundred Million Naira for the inhuman torture their son was subjected to.
According to the Vanguard, the demand was contained in a letter addressed to the Principal of the School, titled; “Gross Child abuse, palpable molestation, serial bullying, criminal starvation, malicious oppression, and dubious maltreatment of master Don-Davies Archibong (11 years old) by the Principal and Boarding Master, of Deeper Life Secondary School, Uyo”
The letter was sent by the Parents of Don Davies through their solicitors, Eagle-Eyes Network Chambers, and signed by David Okokon (Esq).
According to the letter which was dated December 22, 2020, and obtained by Vanguard on Friday in Uyo, the School was given 21 days of the receipt of the letter to pay the N100million compensation.
“We are solicitors to Mr. and Mrs. Iniobong Archibong, resident in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State 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, 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 dehumanizing, horrendous torture and indignity our client’s son was subjected to and for his medical check-up and medication.” the letter reads in part.
The Akwa Ibom State government, in the meantime, has announced its decision to withdraw from investigating the matter.
Mr. Ini Ememobong the Commissioner for Information and Strategy disclosed this in a statement to newsmen on Thursday in Uyo and also called on the public to please exercise patience for a thorough investigation to be carried out by the police and other relevant institutions.
“The State Government will upon receipt of the report take necessary actions thereto”, Ememobong assured.
