All parties involved in the alleged s#xual abuse of a 10-year-old primary six pupil of Chrisland Schools have been ordered to report at the Lagos police command.
The Chrisland school involved is located at Victoria Garden City area of the state.
The Lagos State Police Command revealed it invited all parties involved in the matter.
The Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, told The PUNCH on Tuesday that all parties involved in the matter have been directed to report to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, today.
Giving an update on the matter, Hundeyin said, “All the parties involved have been invited to the State Criminal Investigation Department Panti today to give a written statement and further questioning will be done.”
The parties involved include the school’s head teacher, G.I. Azike; and the parents of the female pupil who alleged that their daughter was s#xually abused during the school’s participation in the World School Games at Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Though the school management said the female pupil was among 76 pupils that represented the school at the Dubai event, which was held between March 8 and 14, 2022, it said the allegation of rape was false.
Rather, the school said two pupils of the school engaged in what the school described as “s#xual misconduct” in a game called ‘Truth or Dare,’ when the act occurred after lights out.
The school authorities subsequently suspended the female student (name withheld) indefinitely, stating that she was “a major actor” in the “immoral act”.
However, the mother of the pupil, in a viral video, claimed that her daughter was drugged and raped by some male students of the school.
Recall that the Lagos State Government on Monday closed all Chrisland Schools in the state, indefinitely, pending the outcome of investigation by security agents.
