All persons engaged in the alleged sexual abuse of a 10-year-old primary six kid at Chrisland Schools in the Victoria Garden City region of Lagos have been summoned by the Lagos State Police Command.
All parties engaged in the matter have been instructed to report to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, today, according to Lagos Police Public Relations Officer Benjamin Hundeyin.
“All of the parties involved have been invited to the State Criminal Investigation Department Panti today to give a written statement, and additional questioning will be done,” Hundeyin said.
The school’s head teacher, G.I. Azike, is one of the parties involved, as are the parents of the female pupil who allege that their daughter was sexually molested while the school was competing in the World School Games in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Despite the fact that the female student was one of 76 students who represented the school at the Dubai event, which took place between March 8 and 14, 2022, the institution stated the allegation of rape was unfounded.
Rather, the school claimed that two students participated in “sexual misbehavior” in a game called “Truth or Dare” after the lights went off.
The female student (name withheld) was then suspended indefinitely by the school authorities, who said she was “a main performer” in the “immoral act.”
However, the pupil’s mother claimed in a viral video that her daughter was drugged and raped by some of the school’s male students.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Lagos State Government on Monday closed all Chrisland Schools in the state, indefinitely, pending the outcome of the investigation by security agents.
The Chrisland Schools incident was one of the recent incidences of bullying and molestations in secondary schools that has been disappointing.
Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old boarding student at Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos, died from injuries incurred after he was allegedly tormented and sexually raped by some senior students at the school last November.
Karen-Happuch Akpagher of Premiere Academy, Lugbe, Abuja, died of sexual abuse in June 2021, whereas Don Davies of Deeper Life High School, Uyo, almost escaped death when his mother raised the alarm of her emaciated son’s suspected sodomy in December 2020.
