All parties involved in the alleged sexual abuse of a 10-year-old primary six pupil of Chrisland Schools met on Wednesday at the Ministry of Education in the Alausa area of Lagos State, PUNCH report.

An impeccable source at the meeting which started at 2:30pm told newsmen that officials of the Education Quality Assurance and those of the Directorate of Public Prosecution interrogated representatives of the school management as well as the parents of the affected pupils.

We had earlier reported the news of a 10-year-old female student of Chrisland school who was allegedly gang-raped by male students when they travelled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The pupils were in Dubai to represent their school in a sporting competition. A suspension letter sent to the parents of the female student by the school located in the Victoria Garden City area of the state, says that while in Dubai, a female student and some of her male colleagues engaged in a ‘Truth or Dare Game’, which was immoral.

Miffed with the incident, the distraught mother of the victim simply identified as Juliann, appealed to Nigerians to assist her get justice for her daughter. She accused the school of negligence and poor communication.

The mother of the 10-year-old girl had alleged that her daughter was sexually abused during the school’s participation in the World School Games at Dubai.

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 “sexual misconduct” in a game called ‘Truth or Dare,’ when the act occurred after lights out.

The school authorities subsequently suspended the female student indefinitely, stating that she was “a major actor” in the “immoral act”.

The Chrisland Schools’ incident was one of the disheartening cases resulting from bullying and molestations in secondary schools of late.

Last November, a 12-year-old boarding student of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, Sylvester Oromoni, reportedly died from injuries sustained after he was allegedly bullied and sexually molested by some senior male students of the school.

Karen-Happuch Akpagher of Premiere Academy, Lugbe, Abuja, had died of sexual molestation in June 2021 while Don Davies of Deeper Life High School, Uyo, had also narrowly escaped death in December 2020, when his mother raised the alarm of alleged sodomy of her emaciated son.
