School suspends boy who allegedly advised a female victim of molestation to report the incident

Mayokun Akpoterabor, the mother of the boy, Medad, was at the school, Cayley College on Celestial Church Street, off Amaraolu street, Agidingbi, Lagos, yesterday, and wrote this on Facebook: “Paid a visit to my son’s school this morning in the company of just 3 out of several other concerned friends, who called and expressed their intention to follow me down here to clarify issues.
.
.
The 3 are – Dr Dokun Adedeji Mr. Olusola Egberedu and Pastor Ajayi Keji. We got to speak first with the Director of studies, Mr Solomon Ashiegbu. Even the strong will shudder at his explanation and responses, the weak will simply pass out. I was dangling between the two ends, it took God’s grace to stay sane and calm!

He noted that my son Medad Akpoterabor was suspended because they presume he wanted to get the child in question suspended! Is intention to expel enough reason, or grave-ier than molestation? He said they are equal? Why was the same sanction not meted out to the molester as the intended-advocate-of-expulsion aka Medad?
.
.
Hear his defence – the molester and molested were given working suspension meaning washing plate and mopping! That to him is equal, even, fair! E gba mi – even the molested girl was punished! Jesu mi!
.
.
A lot of things he said will make one almost blank out in amazement. Really this man is a father? A DOS? Well, it was established – molestation ( Molestation in every word o – breast-touching, forcing her for a kiss ) happened, Medad was suspended for advising with the intent to witch-hunt Miss Molester, and tarnish the school’s image. That is still his offence.

On getting to the office of the proprietress, Mrs Mary Iyayi, may I note that her disposition was, to be modest, “ok so what?!” Some 15 minutes into our visit, she couldn’t bear being asked questions, and bluntly stood and said she owes the three people who came with me, no explanation!
.
.
She wanted to walk out on us! At that time, the three wonderful men, stood up to her and gave her her match! We left her office of course, angry at such effrontery!”
