Police Spokesperson Moses Carter says very shortly the Liberia National Police will release findings from an investigation that is being conducted at the Alexandria A. Andrews Academy; linking instructors to alleged sexual exploitation.
Recently, a pro-Democracy group under the banner of Students Against Corruption –SAC released a press statement indicting some Instructors at the school to an alleged sexual activity with some female students for grades, a release that led to Police’s Investigation.
Mr. Carter told a team of Journalists on Thursday in Monrovia that the Women and Children Division of the Liberia National Police has gone very far in the investigation and very soon, the final report will be out.
Mr. Carter said he has gathered that the Alexandria A. Andrews Academy has been doing extremely well in educating Liberian students in the central north of the country; adding that despite its efforts, the law needs to take its course in every human right issue.
The Police Spokesperson, therefore, encouraged Parents not to panic over the situation, calling on them to keep sending their children to the school for quality education.
Ahead of the Police final report, there are also reports of the Students Against Corruption SAC and a few of the students from the school being allegedly financed by some Americans for the purpose of maligning the characters of the instructors involved
An insider of SAC who asked not to be named told KMTV that officials of SAC have been receiving monies from unknown individuals in the United States of America to indict the Administration of the school.
The move according to our source is intended to replace the current leadership of Change Agent Network, a US-Liberian-based not-for-profit Organization headed by Mr. Eric Willise Wowoh.
Many of those believed to be allegedly financing SAC are people who may have come to Liberia on the invitation of Change Agent Network.
Under the organization, about five schools have been established and are currently providing quality and affordable education to thousands of students in Urban and Rural Liberia.
Our Correspondent says it is the first time for such news about sexual exploitation since the establishment of those schools across the Country.
Some of the students who were mentioned in the release by SAC have so far described the report as an unsubstantiated claim, adding that the report from the organization is only intended to undermine the struggle for quality education at the school.
“I am still confused why those people will use my name in their report that I was sexually abused. I don’t know how they came up with that but as far as I am concerned, no one has ever approached me in this school and therefore, I have never taken a complaint to any group” one of the female students who is alleged to have been sexually abused told this paper.
A campus-based investigation conducted by this paper has established that the students are in total disagreement with the SAC’s report.
“For me, I am waiting for the Police’s report. I want the report to come because for what I heard in the news about Students Against Corruption saying that some girls here were abused, that is not to my knowledge”
