Chrisland School has explained why it suspended a 10-year-old female student who was abused and r@ped by her colleagues.
In a statement dated 14 April 2022 and signed by Chrisland School Head Teacher, Mrs G.I. Azike, the school also stressed the action taken to resolve the case as it categorically stated that the action of the student was a ‘truth and dare’ game.
The statement, titled, Indefinite suspension of …(the female student), partly read, “It was discovered that your daughter was involved in improper behaviour during the recently concluded World School Games in Dubai with a few of her counterparts willfully participated in a game they called Truth or Dare’, a game which led her and a few other co-learners to carry out an immoral act after the lights-out instruction was given.
“In line with our core values centred on discipline, Chrisland Schools have zero tolerance for any improper behaviour and misconduct. A full-scale investigation has been done and the parents of all the culpable learners have been duly notified of the necessary punishment meted out on the learners.
“However, in the course of the school’s efforts to see how best we can help…who was a major participant in the whole incident, every effort to inform you as her parents about the incident and ensure that this improper behaviour is permanently corrected, has proved to be futile.
“We cannot as a school condone such. Consequently, (the student) is hereby placed on an indefinite suspension until you as the parents ensure that she is punished, adequately counselled and rehabilitated.”
This comes after the Chrisland School was called out on social media for deliberately sweeping under the carpet the incident of a female student who was taken turns on by a number of male students.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government has shut the school over the alleged sexual violence case involving its students which occurred in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
