KanyiDaily recalls that all Chrisland schools in Lagos were shut down on Monday, April 18, pending investigations into a sex tape scandal involving pupils of the school circulating on social media.
KanyiDaily had reported how a 10-year-old female student of Chrisland School was seen having sεx with her classmates during a trip to Dubai, where they participate in the World School Games (WSG) between March 10 and 13, 2022.
The student’s mother had claimed that her daughter was raped, but Chrisland said the girl took part in a “truth-or-dare” game with other male students who had sεx with her while recording the incident and posted it on Instagram.
The girl’s mother also alleged that Chrisland conducted a pregnancy test on her daughter without their consent, but the school said it only conducted the COVID-19 tests on the students when they returned from the Dubai trip in accordance with laid down protocols on the pandemic.
Chrisland Schools To Reopen On Monday
Five days after it ordered the closure, the Commissioner of Education in Lagos, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo has directed that the schools be reopened from Monday, April 25, following a ‘review of the ongoing administrative investigation’ into the incident.
The statement read, “The Lagos State Ministry of Education has directed that all Chrisland Schools shut for alleged misconduct of some students in Dubai be reopened from Monday, April 25th, 2022.
“The directive follows a review of the ongoing administrative investigation into the incident. Besides, it is to ensure that students are not denied access to learning when the new term begins on Monday 25th April 2022.
“The State Government shut the schools for the safety of students and the staff and to ensure unhindered investigation of the incident.
“The Ministry of Education and other relevant agencies of the State, in conjunction with the school’s Parent Teachers Association, will be working on scheduled psychosocial support for the students.
“An extensive assessment of the school’s procedure, especially on external trips and excursions, is being made to identify safety gaps and prevent such incidents.
“Besides, the Ministry will launch the reviewed guidelines/protocols governing private and public schools across the state within the next one month.”
KanyiDaily recalls that on Tuesday, Lagos State Police Command had invited all parties involved in the sεx tape scandal involving pupils of Chrisland School in the Victoria Island Garden City.
