The Lagos State government has ordered the closure of a Chrisland School over the death of a student Whitney Adeniran.
Whitney Adeniran, a student of Chrisland’s Opebi Ikeja branch, died during a inter-house sports event on February 9.
Blessing, the deceased’s mother, accused Chrisland School of negligence as her family continued questioning the school.
She stated that the school made no provision for emergency response at the event, hence didn’t administer first aid.
Blessing said her daughter had no pre-existing heart condition despite the doctor’s allusion to a cardiac arrest.
But Folasade Adefisayo, Lagos education commissioner, says the school is now closed, pending an ongoing probe.
“We also note the impact of this unfortunate event on family, friends, and acquaintance of Whitney and call for calm as we assure that no effort will be spared in investigating the incident”, the commissioner stated.
Whitney had reported “not-too-buoyant” health on January 20, in contrast to what her parents had claimed, the management at Chrisland School said earlier in response to criticism from the public following the 12-year-old student’s death.
Due to proximity issues, the school claimed it chose to take Whitney to a health center rather than a hospital.
Chrisland School pointed out that she slouched in public while denying any suspicion of foul play in the death case.
“Our immediate response was to take advantage of proximity by identifying the nearest medical facility to take her to, where the doctor on duty administered oxygen and every aid possible to her,” the institution had added.
