The firm, however, maintained that the students were neither hurt nor sexually molested.
The company’s legal adviser, Mr. Frank Obayagbona, while briefing newsmen on the robbery attack said: “Our company sympathises with the students and their parents for the inconvenience, emotional and psychological trauma they may have subjected to as a result of the unfortunate incident.

“We are ready as a responsible corporate entity to work with parents of the children with a view of helping them overcome the traumatic experience medically and otherwise to the best of our ability.”
Maintaining that the children were never hurt or sexually molested during the armed robbery incident, as was widely reported in the press, the legal adviser maintained that their concern was the welfare of the children and how to join hands with their parent to help them overcome the trauma. He added that the interest of the children was very important to his company.

“At the time students were rescued and a head count conducted, we inquired whether any of them (students) was hurt or sexually molested but they all confirmed they were fine and not molested. Even the woman who was a representative of the Parent Teachers’Association in the bus at the time they were all rescued confirmed that non of them was sexually molested.”

Explaining further, he said there was no report made to the police by any of the students or the female representative that they were sexually molested, adding that they were shocked by the unsubstantiated report in the media that the students were raped.
