School gives clarity over missing student
By Joseph Titus Yekeryan
The principal of the John Flomo Bakalu High School in Gbarnga, Bong County has reacted to speculations that the institution is involved with the alleged disappearance of its 12th-grade student Emmanuel Slobber.
The speculation stemmed from a recent misinformation about a student of the twelve-grade class going missing from the school campus on Monday, 6 February 2023.
The principal Mr. Josiah Kollie explained after school, student Emmanuel Slobber left his home for Piata in lower Bong on Monday, 6 February 2023.
He said Slobber left his home without the knowledge of his guardians.
According to Mr. Kollie, this triggered fears and accusations that Slobber went missing while on campus.
According to the information, student Slobber returned on Tuesday, 7 February 2023. It is reported that he had gone to install DSTV for a customer in Piata.
Speaking with reporters Tuesday, Mr. Kollie clarified that the school is not involved with such scary and gruesome activity, calling on parents and the public not to panic.
“We are Christians and will never engage in ritualistic acts. So wherever the information is coming from that we are in [ritualistic] business, we want to categorically deny such fake information,” he continued.
He described the accusation as misleading and a statement from the belle of the devil.
He urged parents to do follow-ups and verify the information they hear about the school before taking it to the public.
According to him, the action of student Slobber’s parent has totally embarrassed the institution.
The matter is being investigated by the Bong County Police Detachment.
