The Lagos government has ordered an indefinite shutdown of the popular Chrisland Schools across the state, following the coming to light of a video which showed the moment 2 underage students were indulging in adult plays.
Ubi Franklin who brought this development to more light on Sunday, while leaving out the name of the school, alleged that the supposed girl was 10yrs and that she was r@p£d. But as more was learnt about the incident, it was observed that the young girl was playing a truth of dare game which she obviously obliged.
The indefinite suspension and shutdown of the school was annouced today, Monday 18th April 2022, in a statement jointly signed by the Ministry of Education, Office of Education Quality Assurance, Ministry of Youth and Social Development and Ministry of Justice. The statement read,
“The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to the alleged s#xual violence case involving students of Chrisland school 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 & S#xual 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-centred 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 s#xually explicit conduct involving a child, commits an offence and is liable to a custodial sentence of fourteen (14) years. This includes “producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing an image of child p*rnography”.
“In the meantime, all Chrisland schools within Lagos State are hereby closed, pending further investigations.”
