Following the viral sex films of some of the school’s students, the Lagos state government has closed all branches of Chrisland schools in the state.
According to a statement issued by the state administration, an inquiry into the regrettable situation has begun. According to the statement, a criminal accusation regarding the regrettable occurrence has also been raised to the state police.
The state administration cautioned that anybody caught making, distributing, receiving, or possessing child pornography commits a crime and faces a fourteen (14)-year prison term.
The statement is as follows:
''The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to the alleged sexual violence case involving students of Chrisland Schools which occurred in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is pertinent to note that all allegations are being investigated by the relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies, including Ministry of Education, Office of Education Quality Assurance, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Ministry of Justice and the Lagos State Domestic & Sexual Violence Agency, whilst the criminal allegations have been escalated to the Commissioner of Police. In view of the allegations, we are committed to ensuring that adequate medical and pscyho social support is provided. This is to reassure members of the public of the State Government’s commitment to safety and child protection, especially in ensuring that all child-centered institutions within the state, formulate and implement policies and systems that are compliant with the Executive Order (NO.EO/AA08 of 2016), Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Program. We also use this medium to remind the general public that any person who engages in any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a child, commits an offence and is liable to custodial sentence of fourteen (14) years. This includes “producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing an image of child pornography”. In the meantime, all Chrisland Schools within Lagos State are hereby closed, pending further investigations. Signed Lagos State Government
A mother has appealed to Nigerians for assistance after learning that her child was raped on a school trip to Dubai organised by Chrisland School.
According to a viral video released on the Instagram page of music entrepreneur Ubi Franklin, the mom alleged that while her daughter was being raped, someone videotaped the incident and put it online.
She said that the school attempted to conceal the event from them until another parent gave her the footage. The enraged mother went on to say that the school threatened to murder her daughter if she spoke out about the event.
“A parent called to say she needed to see me right now.” I went to her house, and she informed me that something had been going on in Chrisland, and she thought I was unaware of it. The woman gave me the video and informed me that all of the parents are aware of it. I immediately notified my hubby.
“Please, I implore Nigerians to assist me since Chrisland was attempting to conceal this matter.” They were attempting to push us out of the way, and my daughter suffered psychologically as a result. As a mother, I urgently want assistance. I am pleading with my fellow Nigerians to assist me.
“They’ve been threatening my daughter that if she speaks up, they’ll murder her.” Nothing would happen since it is a man’s world. “My kid was dying in quiet,” she says in the video.
The student’s mother went on to say that once they approached the school about the event, they suspended her daughter. “Because we began challenging them about what they did, the school sent her a suspension letter.”
“When my daughter told me what occurred, she claimed they went out for breakfast in the morning and one of the lads, Kachi, requested her to lend him her phone charger, which she did.” Kachi contacted her room after supper to tell her she needed to come get her charger. She went there to charge her phone.
“When she entered the room, one of them suggested she retrieve her charger from the toilet; it was when she entered the toilet that they kidnapped her and instructed her to swallow a drug, so they were all high.” She then stated that she had no idea what she was doing. “They instructed her to climb them, and someone stood there filming and publishing it,” she explained.
