Mr. Seiyaboh Idah expressed serious concerns over the false report, describing it as embarrassing and an assault to his character.
He said the report was baseless, "careless, irresponsible, unprofessional and contrary to a minimum standard of journalism anywhere in the world".
Idah said there was nothing true about the report, adding that it was totally against his “character, moral rectitude, ideals and qualities.”
He said: “I was highly embarrassed by the report. The school, the students, my family including my parents, were all embarrassed and assaulted by the falsehood. “My friends all over the country and the world have been calling me over this incident to confirm whether l was still alive. You can see that l am alive and kicking.”
