Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to demand justice over the case of one JSS 1 student of the Deeper Life High School in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, who was allegedly starved and molested by his senior colleagues.
TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how Deborah Okezie, his mother, claimed her son was deprived of food and molested by students of the school after the principal moved him to their dormitory for urinating on his bed.
She had also claimed that her son told her the senior students pushed their hands and legs into his anus while also threatening to kill him if he reported to his parents or the principal, who was recently suspended over the case.
The mother had thereafter narrated how she was attacked at the office of Enobong Mbobo, the commissioner for education in the state, who had invited her and her son for questioning on the instruction of the state government.
The development has since provoked outrage and attracted calls for justice over the boy’s case on Twitter.
While some users alleged that efforts were ongoing to silence the cries of the mother of the 11-year-old schoolboy, others called on William Kumuyi, the general superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, to wade in.
“People that are working with the commissioner of education to silence the woman you’re saying stop lying! That press release was to deter people like you from digging deeper into the truth! Your church is a scam!” one wrote.
“Pastor Kumuyi should do something about this. This is really heartbreaking. Imagine what other kids are going through but can’t speak. Anything wey concern boarding school, I don cancel am!” another Twitter user added.

Pastor Kumuyi should replicate that same energy used in collecting tithes and offerings to resolve this Davis issue.#JusticeForDonDavis

Woke up this morming and #JusticeForDonDavis is the no 1 trend and I love it. As sexual harassment on females shouldn't be tolerated, so should that of our males too. They deserve the same we love and justice. @pastorwf_kumuyi pls do the right thing. #deeperlifehighschool

I was expecting to see a loud uproar from Christians about Don Davies case.
Don Davies case is not about bringing disrepute to #deeperlifehighschool or targeted at hurting Kumuyi's reputation. We just want to put an end to the evil thriving in the school.

•The #Deeperlifehighschool that was involved in the molestation of young #DonDavis should be sealed till after the investigation. @pastorwf_kumuyi you say you are a righteous man. The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern. Proverbs 29:7

Yesterday, we kept quiet about rape and sexual harassment.
And so today, it is Don Davies.
Tomorrow, it will be your son or daughter.
This is the Nigeria we are giving our children.

The #JusticeForDonDavis should begin with other Parents withdrawing their wards from the Deeper Life Boarding School. You encourage them when you stay silent and continue paying tuition fee meanwhile your child could be next.
