In anticipation of the investigation’s findings, the Lagos government has ordered the institution to close.
Blessing, the mother of the deceased, had alleged carelessness against Chrisland and questioned the school’s account of what happened.
She said that despite the doctor’s mention to a cardiac arrest, the school had not made any provisions for an emergency reaction at the sporting event and had not provided first aid.
Michael Adeniran, the dead student’s father, demanded an investigation into his daughter’s murder on social media on Saturday night.
The closure of the school was announced by Folasade Adefisayo, the Lagos State Commissioner for Education.
We also recognize how this sad tragedy has affected Whitney’s family, friends, and acquaintances, and we urge calm while assuring you that every effort will be made to thoroughly investigate the matter, she added.
In response to criticism from the general public following the death of the 12-year-old pupil, the school administration claimed Whitney had, in contrast to her parents’ allegations, reported “not-too-buoyant” health on January 20.
Due to proximity, the school claimed it chose to take her to a health center rather than a hospital.
Chrisland argued that Whitney sagged in public, rejecting suggestions of foul play in her passing.
At least three times in the past three years, Chrisland School Lagos has been the focal point of a crisis.
After a sex tape made by students at Chrisland leaked online during an outing in 2022, four teachers were charged. For defiling a two-year-old girl in 2016, an ex-teacher of the school’s branch in VGC received a 60-year prison sentence in 2019.
