Chrisland School Reacts To Rape Allegations

The allegations against Chrisland Schools, Lagos State, that a 10-year-old primary six pupil was raped during the school’s participation in the World School Games at Dubai, United Arab Emirates has been denied by the school.

At the event which was held between March 8 and 14, 2022, the female pupil was among 76 pupils that represented the school.

Their claim was revealed in a statement by a Member of the school’s Advisory Board, Akin Fadeyi.

The statement was titled, ‘Chrisland Children Remain Our Centre of Focus,’ 71 of the pupils ensured untainted adherence to the school’s standards.

“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.

“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 instil a sense of discipline and as deterrence to others.

“We are proud to reassure our stakeholders that no rape of anyone or the administration of a pregnancy test on any child took place on our watch. For emphasis, only a COVID post-travel test was conducted on the returning delegation of our students, in compliance with COVID-19 travel protocols at the Life Centre Medical Services on March 21, 2022, at School Hall, Opebi.

“This was through the nose swab test as consistent with COVID-19 health protocols. We trust that this can be verified at the source provided,” the statement added.

The statement came after a video clip of two pupils of the school engaged in what the school described as ‘sexual misconduct’ was shared on Twitter by an unidentified user.
