Modadeoluwa, a six-year-old girl, drowned during swimming lessons at her school, Start-Rite Abuja, and her family is seeking justice against the school.
A close source who lived with the girl and her parents revealed to Kemi FIlani News that Modadeoluwa drowned on her birthday.
“Modadeoluwa marked her birthday with her parents present, 40 mins later they called them to inform them that their daughter is not breathing. Apparently, she was taking swimming classes and suddenly went breathless and passed out, she was rushed to the hospital at Cidercrest but couldn’t make it.” the source whose name has been withheld told Kemi FIlani News.
Another family member also cried out on Instagram saying the tragic incident could have been avoided and worse still, the Start-Rite school management is covering up for the act.
How Start-Rite tried to cover up their deed
The school called her parents to rush over to the emergency clinic because their child had a minor injury, only for us to reach and found her applied pressure at the emergency clinic. The Suspicion is she died prior to arriving at the emergency clinic.
We requested CCTV. When it arrived, we found out they had doctored the tape. Asides from that, the executive of the school actually went to the emergency clinic and told them not to give us the clinical report, until we threatened them before they delivered it.
Presently the school is open like nothing occurred and they aren’t assuming responsibility. Let it be known that the hospital said she had passed on before she even got to the emergency clinic. No CPR was given prior to taking her to the medical clinic” the family member cried out.
The Start-Rite school management is yet to react to the allegations as at the time of this report.
