The brand name Chrisland School has become notorious for all sorts of indecent and immoral behavior.
Just few months after one of the head teacher of the branch in Lekki, Mr. Adegboyega Adenekan was convicted for sexually abusing 2 years and 11 months old baby and sentenced to 60 years imprisonment, the school has been hit by another scandal.
This time, it is sex scandal by a 13 year old teenager with fellow students far away in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate. Chrisland School, VGC had selected the teenager to represent the school during the World School Games in Dubai. It was during this festival that the student engaged in “Truth or Dare” game which they alleged to have watched on Big Brother Nigeria. Truth or Dare game was not popular in Nigeria prior to Big Brother Nigeria show.
Although the details of the incident are still very sketchy, a fellow male student is alleged to have dared the girl to go down with her. What followed was an indecent act, a vivid video of the teenagers naked, with the girl on top a fellow student doing it.
Though many have blamed the school for lack of supervision of the students during the excursion in far away Dubai, what seems to have dominated the internet was the concealment of the incident from her parents almost a month after the incident only for the parents to stumble on video of the sexual escapade of her daughter circulating on the social media.
First to break the news was the reputable music producer, Ubi Franklyn who was very much disturbed about the development.
“I just got off phone with a friend of mine. His 10 year old daughter was selected to represent her school(Chrisland School VGC) at World School Games in Dubai.
“His daughter was raped by a fellow students, video taped and posted on instagram and the school concealed it for a month.
He found out on his own when another parent called his wife and showed his wife the video of his 10 year old daughter being circulated on Instagram. I have spent the last 1 hour listening to the confessional statements by some teachers and I am begging this should rather be a dream”, he said to portray the vivid nature of the video.
The school followed up this exposure by slamming indefinite suspension on the girl in question.
In a letter dated 14th April, 2022 signed by Head Teacher of Chrisland School, VGC, Mrs. G.I. Azike , the school noted, : “It was discovered that your daughter was involved in an improper behavior 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 carryout immoral act after the light out instruction was given.
“In line with our core values centred on discipline, Chrisland have zero tolerance for any improper behavior and misconduct.
“A full scale investigation has been done and the parents of the culpable learners have been duly notified with the necessary punishment meted out on the learners. The parents gave their full cooperation, realizing the need to work with the school so that the learners can be corrected and be of expected proper behavour, henceforth.
“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 parent about the incident and to ensure that this improper behavior is permanently corrected, has proved to be futile.
“We cannot as a school condone such, consequently, is hereby placed on indefinite suspension until you as the parent ensure that she is punished, adequately counseled and rehabilitated. However, if you need our assistance in any form to rehabilitate — the school is willing to assist”, the head teacher said.
