Nigerians have called on the general superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church Pastor William Kumuyi to personally probe the alleged abuse of an 11-year-old pupil of Deeper Life High School in Akwa Ibom State.
A parent Deborah Okezie whose son is a junior secondary school one student had in a Facebook video alleged that her son Don Davis was starved, as well as molested by some senior pupils of the school.
The school management has suspended the principal Solomon Ndidi to allow seamless investigation while Akwa Ibom State Government has also waded in.
However, Nigerians on Twitter on Monday called for action from Kumuyi, urging him to address the matter personally in the light of the church’s reputation.
One Vamara tweeted “Where is pastor Kumuyi or is he unaware of what’s happening??If he even cared,he would have carried the matter on his head……Rubbish See fine boy that was full of flesh now looks skinny,wtf!! #JusticeForDonDavis #JusticeForDonDavis #JusticeForDonDavis“
One Omojiate tweeted “It has become a norm for people to go to boarding school to come back slim than how they went but this one particular case is worse. He came back with slim fitted body from head to toe. Pastor Kumuyi should kindly lend a voice to this. #JusticeForDonDavis #deeperlifehighschool“
One Aunty Feyi tweeted “What has Pastor Kumuyi said about this issue?? His voice is too low for someone who screams about immorality…Davis was abused and raped by horrible boys, Davis is one out of the victims in that school!! #JusticeForDonDavis“
One Pierre Peter tweeted “This matter shouldn’t be neglected, it should be looked into, the boy’s psychological and mental health is affected and if he doesn’t get a sense of Justice he might remain like that for a long time or even forever. Pastor Kumuyi please look into this #JusticeForDonDavis“
