The Lagos State Police Command has commenced an investigation into the sex scandal involving students of Chrisland School Lagos.
Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson for the Lagos Police Command made this known in a statement on Monday.
“Yes, we have commenced investigation into it. No one has reported the issue to us but we saw it on social media and we have swiftly commenced our investigation into the case,” Hundeyin said.
The alleged sexual act happened in March when the school travelled to Dubai to take part in the World School Games, a four-day annual competition with schools from all over the world.
Ubi Franklin, a talent manager who first broke the news online accused the school of complicity in the sexual violation involving the minor and another male pupil.
“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,” he wrote on Sunday night via his Twitter handle.
“His daughter was raped by fellow students, video tapped and posted on Instagram and the school concealed it for a month.”
The management of Chrisland School had suspended the 10-year old for alleged involvement in improper behaviour.
According to the school, the pupil and a few of ‘her counterparts willfully participated in a ‘Truth or Dare’ game which led her and a few other co-learners to carry out an immoral act after the lights-out instruction was given.
But contrary to the position of Chrisland school, the mother of the 10-year-old said her child was allegedly raped, and the school was trying to cover it up.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government has suspended all Chrisland Branches in the state till further notice.
In a statement announcing the closure of the schools on Monday, the Lagos state government said the matter is being investigated by relevant agencies.
