UPDATE: Chrisland School accused of cover-up; mother of girl in leaked tape give damning details

After a 10-year-old Chrisland School student was reportedly sexually molested during a school trip to Dubai, the Lagos State government has decided to close all of the school’s branches.

Someone recorded and broadcast the act online while the girl was being raped by her peers, according to a video released by the girl’s mother.

In an attempt to cover up the conduct, the mother alleged that the school threatened her daughter that if she spoke to anybody about the incident, they would murder her.

“They have been threatening my daughter that if she speaks out, they are going to kill her; that it is men’s world that she should keep quiet, she shouldn’t disclose to me,”  she wrote.

She continued,  “About a month ago, I was on my way out of Lagos. So, I got a call from Mrs. Azike, the head teacher from Chrisland; she called me (to say) that she needed to see me. I said I would come when I returned, and two days later, I came to the school. When I got to the school, I met her with two other women in her office.

“They wanted me to know my daughter, whom I left in their care that they took to Dubai, kissed a boy, and the boy kissed her, and they found out that they got that kissing thing from ‘truth and dare’, which I said I would curtail her. They said (what) they wanted me to do is to take her phone so they won’t continue practicing, and I said OK.”

She also said some weeks later the school’s principal Georgie Azike invited her to a Zoom meeting where Mr. Akin, the meeting host, preached forgiveness.

According to her, the incident remained unclear until another parent showed a video of her daughter engaging in sexual acts with her schoolmates, an incident she did not know about until the woman spoke to her.

“So please, I’m begging Nigeria to help me because Chrisland was trying to hide this issue. They were trying to push us out of the way, and my daughter was psychologically insane.

“Please, I need help as a mother. I’m begging fellow Nigerians to help me. The part that Chrisland played to cover up this rape issue.” she narrated.

The woman went on to say when she and her husband confronted Chrisland School’s management for lying to them, the institution responded by suspending her daughter.

“They took her to do a pregnancy test without the father knowing and lied to us that they were taking her for a Covid test. Because we have started confronting them, they sent her suspension letter,” she further lamented.
