Some cultists were said to have left fetish objects near the principal’s office door, along with two warning notes.

“We give you 24 hours to liberate our boys or we will fall you,” the note adds. Remember that we are familiar with your home, children, and wife, and that Iwok is a personal friend of yours. We always defend you, Mr. Principal, yet you are battling us. We’ve given up on your case; we’re not going to fight for you anymore.”

When approached for response, the school’s principal, Michael Etuk, was unavailable, but the Commissioner of Education, Etiebet, reacted with a text message saying, “I’m in a meeting, I’ve directed the chairman Secondary education board to temporarily close the school.”

Miss Keziah Joseph, a student, stated the pupils were astonished to see fetish artefacts about the principal’s office and were ordered to leave the school to avoid a disturbance.
