Chrisland School, one of the most popular private schools in Nigeria, is presently in the eye of the storm for allegedly covering up the rape of a 10-year-old female student.
A Nigerian music executive, Ubi Franklin took to Twitter on Sunday evening to narrate how his friend’s 10-year-old daughter was allegedly raped by her fellow students, videotaped and the recording shared on Instagram.
Franklin, who did not name the affected school, stated that the school covered up the incident for a month but the alleged victim’s parents found out on their own.
“Just got off the phone with a friend of mine His 10-year-old daughter was selected to represent her school at the World School Games in Dubai. His daughter was r**ped by fellow students, video tapped 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 1hour listening to confessional statements by some teachers and I am begging this should rather be a dream,” Ubi Franklin tweeted.
In an update. Ubi Franklin noted that the school has since suspended the girl.
“UPDATE ON MY PREVIOUS POST.
“This school took the girl from her parents that they wanted to conduct a Covid test and the school rather took the girl for a pregnancy test.
“As we speak the girl has been SUSPENDED from the school. Some things don’t make sense at all.”
Meanwhile, Peoples Gazette reported that Chrisland School located in highbrow Victoria Garden City (VGC), Ikoyi suspended a 10-year-old student for participating in a “truth-or-dare” game in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
