Parents of 11-year-old Don-Davies Archibong who allegedly suffered sexual molestation at Deeper Life High School in Idoro, Akwa Ibom State have asked the school to pay N100 million compensation for the torture their son was allegedly subjected to in the school.

Mr and Mrs Archibong made the demand in a letter dated December 22 and addressed to the principal of the school through their solicitors Eagle-Eyes Network Chambers.

They gave the school 21 days to pay the money and publish an apology over the incident in national dailies.

The statement reads: “We are solicitors to Mr. and Mrs, Iniobong Archibong, resident in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and herein after 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.”
