The cordinator of Ijaw monitoring group (IMG) Comrade Joseph Evah has faulted the Failure DOWEN college owner to suspend the principal of the college before the commencement of police investigation as dangerous and unacceptable.
In a statement, the human rights activist in Lagos on Monday, he insisted that statement credited to the principal in the media that late Sylvester Oromoni died as a result of football match contrary to revelations that are coming out is enough reason to suspend the principal before commencement of police investigations.
According to Evah, “The public will suspect foul play in this investigation if the principal remain as the Head of the school without suspension by the school owner.
“This cannot happened in any sane society. Nigerians will not accept any cover-up in this global demand for justice for the late student. Nigerians demand for public apology from owners of DOWEN COLLEGE for keeping quiet for over a week in a matter that has painted school owners as inhuman and Heartless.:
Evah further added that “As an Educationist with experience over the years, i know that in some schools, when a principal or any management staff want to get favour or fake relationship with some Parents, they hide or cover- up the crimes committed by children of such parents in the name of loyalty to the child’s parents.
“In this Case, we thank the state government for its intervention by asking the police to investigate but the credibility of the investigation demands the school owners suspend the principal in order not to interfere with the investigation process.
“This is international standard all over the world bcus police need some evidence and exhibits in the school that should not be tempers with in the course of their investigation.
“Consoling the family of the late students, the human rights activist said” we pray God to comfort you because the unbearable is unimaginable. The pain in your heart is too much to bear and the whole world mourn with your family.Please be consoled that the world share your pain bcus they love your special son”
