Sex Scandal: Chrisland School Breaks Silence
  • PublishedApril 19, 2022

The management of Chrisland School Lagos, has broken its silence on the sex scandal that forced Lagos government to shut all its branches in the state.

In a viral video, a 10-year-old female pupil of the school was seen being involved in sexual act with some male pupils.

The school was said to have travelled with some of its pupils to Dubai to participate in the World School Games that held between March 8 and March 14, 2022 when the ugly incident happened.

While reacting on the issue through a statement issued by a member of the School’s Advisory Board, Mr. Akin Fadeyi, the school confirmed that 5 students out of the 76 that went on the Dubai trip broke the rules of the school by getting involved in behaviours in violation of the school’s laid down regulations and code of conduct.

The statement reads in part, “Of the 76 children who represented Chrisland, 71 ensured an untainted adherence to the standards, abiding with laid down regulations and code of conduct.

“Within these 71, we kept our girls on the 11th floor and Boys on the 4th floor to draw clear lines that respect moral boundaries.”

“While we understand the emotions this has generated, we assure the public that our first approach as an institution was to assume parental roles by offering support to those involved and ensuring that nothing affected their senses of esteem. However, after a comprehensive evaluation of the situation, we cannot help but express how scandalised and distressed we feel as mothers, fathers and instructors with a relationship that holds a direct bearing on the development of those involved.

“We were, however, compelled to engage with the parents of the remaining students who unfortunately got themselves involved in misconduct, and in accordance with our code of conduct processes, which are well known to the parents, we meted out measured reprimands to them to instill a sense of discipline and as deterrence to others. This was also to caution our students on the need to remain on the path of resisting wrong influences.

“The disciplinary action was in order not to undermine our cohesive culture as a community of future leaders and committed instructors, but to be assertive in handing down the sort of discipline that seeks to correct and reform our children, when they stray from the path of rectitude.

“While we hasten to affirm that as an institution that is managing children from diverse backgrounds, we cannot lay claim to, or embark on any sense of self-righteousness in our approach, but we learn and evolve within the frames of best practices every single day. We recognise that there will always be space for improvement, we are therefore irrevocably committed to re-evaluating our processes to reinforce child protection protocols, even as we shall leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the senses of esteem of the children involved are uncompromisingly preserved.”

The school also insisted that it only carried out a post COVID travel test on the minor involved and not a pregnancy test as claimed by the mother.
