Mother of ‘assaulted’ Deeper Life School boy to demand N1.5billion compensation in court – Lawyer

Mrs. Deborah Archibong, mother of 11-year old Master Don-Davies Archibong, alleged to have been sexually abused and mistreated at the Deeper Life High School Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, has threatened to go to court if the school fails to pay her the N100million compensation within 21 days.

Besides, Mrs. Archibong, who spoke through her legal counsel, Da David Okokon, said if the management of the DLHS defaults in the payment of the N100m within the 21 days ultimatum, she would proceed to court where she will increase the amount to N1.5 billion. Okokon, who is the practitioner-in-chief of Eagle-Eye Network Chamber, told the Nation in a telephone chat on Sunday that the N100m compensation was non-negotiable.

He said the money was needed to enable his client fly her ‘abused’ son abroad for medical check up and treatment, adding that his client does not require a medical report to save the life of her son. Okokon explained that the money demanded was not for the personal enrichment of his client or for stoppage of investigation but also a compensation for the ‘dehumanizing, horrendous torture and indignity his client’s son was subjected to.
His words,

”The 100million specifically is for the medical attention of the boy because we don’t know the level of damage done to him. ”There are medical experts and consultants that we are not privileged to have in this part of the world so we might have to fly him abroad to ascertain the level of contamination their actions have impacted on that boy.

”This is because today’s Bassey Akra, today’s Oyedepos, Udom Emmanuel, Buharis, Donald Trump and other lesders were minors many years ago and if they were abused the story would not be same today; they wouldn’t be where they are today. ”I stated very clearly in the letter I wrote to the management of Deeper Life High School that the N100m was for the medical attention of the boy. If we are to talk about life, of course you know no amount of money can equal to life. ”If they(DLHS) cannot meet up within the specific time of payment of the N100m we will be left with no alternative but to go to court. And when we go to court we will not be talking of N100m. We will be talking of N1.5 billion. Okokon said further, ‘We are not pre-empting the medical report or outcome of police investigation on the matter because it is just like a lady who is raped. You don’t need a medical report to talk about the medical care for that victim or person. You don’t need a medical report to take the victim to the hospital. ”

The ongoing investigation is to ascertain the culpability of the characters involved in the whole unfortunate drama. We invited the police into the matter. The two parties in the matter are meeting with the police on Tuesday. ”It is based on our petition that the state commissioner for education was invited by the police even though her office abused the process of investigation. And of course we had also written to the education secretary of Deeper Life High School in Lagos. So N100million has nothing to do with stoppage of investigation. ”It is not a money to be paid to withdraw the case. We are saying the boy needs expert medication outside the country,”

he said.

Mrs. Archibong’s lawyer explained that his client decided to go online to let the world know what was going on because the school authority refused to take responsibility for the incident and apologize accordingly. ”If the management of the school had taken responsibility for the sad and shameful actions in the school, my client wouldn’t have gone to the internet but she did that because they denied,” Okokon said.

Don’t accept wike’s deceptive Financial bribe- IPOB warns IMO communities

Published

IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has warned the people of Ohaji Local Government Area of Imo State against ceding their land to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

IPOB cautioned the people of Ohaji against accepting Wike’s alleged satanic and deceptive financial inducement.

Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, issued the warning in reaction to an alleged illegal and undocumented ceding of communities in Ohaji Local Government Area to Wike.

Powerful warned that ceding their communities to Wike would affect their children’s future; hence such a deceptive move should be rejected.

He urged the communities to treat whoever is persuading them to change their state of origin as a criminal.

Powerful noted that accepting to change their state of origin for the sake of N150,000 monthly is evil.

A statement by Powerful reads partly: “Following an illegal undocumented treaty to cede communities of Ohaji Egbema LGA from Imo State to Rivers State via a crooked financial inducement by current Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.

“We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wish to warn that such project is called to a halt to avert inevitable consequences.

“We suggest to the communities that fall into this deceptive venture masterminded by Nyesom Wike to retrace their steps, considering that this singular act could attract futuristic destructive effects.

“IPOB was intimated with the information regarding Governor Wike’s plan, which includes conditional future promises and haven gone through these moves realized that Wike will abandon them in future because governor Wike cannot be in charge of Rivers State beyond his tenor as a current Governor.

“It is a known fact that the Imo State government failed in their obligations as it concerns the predicaments they are facing in that area, but they must forget Wike with his satanic offer. Wike’s deceptive offer would harm them and their children in the future as such may not be sustainable by successive governments. Moreover, the Biafra restoration approaches hastily.

“IPOB is advising them to retrace their steps and watch what God Almighty has in stock for them; changing God Almighty’s plans for children will harm the communities in the future, for God to have placed you where you are today does not mean that he has abandoned you.

“The communities or anybody persuading them to change their State of origin identity and be acquired like slaves with cash value of N150 (One Hundred and Fifty Naira Only) is evil and must be treated as criminal because we don’t see where old men and women, youths and educated people would allow such an undocumented territorial treaty due to hunger and abandonment.”

The International Police (INTERPOL) has arrested three Nigerians over alleged global scam.

The trio were arrested in a sting operation conducted simultaneously in a Lagos suburb, Ajegunle and in Benin City, 300 km to the East of the commercial capital.

One of the scammers, Hendrix Omorume has been charged and convicted and now faces a 12-month prison sentence.

The three men, aged between 31 and 38, were each arrested in possession of fake documents, including fraudulent invoices and forged official letters.

The investigation was conducted in conjunction with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The operation is part of a global operation codenamed “Killer Bee” involving INTERPOL National Central Bureaus (NCBs) and law enforcement in 11 countries across Southeast Asia.

According to INTERPOL’s Director of Cybercrime, Craig Jones, the organisation had “to alert Nigeria to a serious security threat where millions could have been lost without swift police action.”

The laptops and mobile phones seized by EFCC during the arrests, were examined by the INTERPOL to help confirm the systematic use of “Agent Tesla” malware to access business computers and divert monetary transactions to their own accounts.
