Whitney Adeniran’s Tragic Death: Dance Queen, Kaffy Fumes As She Vows To Withdraw Her Kids From Chrisland School 

Popular Nigerian dancer, Kaffy Shafau, has vowed to withdraw her daughter from Chrisland School following the tragic death of a 12-year-old student of the school, Whitney Adeniran.

Kaffy made a video to address the growing concerns trailing the school over their negligence in Whitney’s death.

Recall that Whitney died during the school’s interhouse sports in February. The school had claimed she slumped; however, an autopsy carried out on her body to ascertain the cause of her death revealed she was electrocuted.

Taking to her official Instagram page, the mother of two spoke on the unfortunate incident that led to the death of Whitney and how the school handled the situation.

Kaffy bemoaned the school’s negligence and their lack of empathy. She decried the several ‘sacrifices’ of children in Nigerian schools due to their carelessness.

According to Kaffy, she is heartbroken over the school’s nonchalant attitude to the deceased parents and the consistent pattern of molestation in the school.

Speaking further, the entertainer said the negative reports about the school are becoming too many, with the management not showing any effort to make amends.

She went on to reveal she would be withdrawing her children from the school even though she had already paid her daughter’s fees.

However, by taking this action, Kaffy is strongly urging schools and other organizations to take student safety seriously and to put policies in place that will guard against neglect and injury in the future.

In a statement released, the school claimed Whitney died in “public view and not under any hidden circumstances,” adding that she was rushed to the nearest medical facility for first aid.

However, Whitney’s father claimed his daughter “died from naked wire from one cotton candy vendor machine after she touched it and she was electrocuted immediately she leaned on it.”

He claimed water was poured on her which killed her immediately.

“I have documented evidence that my child died from electrocution and it was not Cardiac arrest. She was hale and hearty, she was not sick. And let me state it clearly, by the time I saw her corpse, her lips and tongue had already turned black,”

Mr. Adeniran told BBC Pidgin.

Giving an update on the autopsy, Mrs. Adeniran accused Chrisland School of lying to her and her husband about their daughter’s death.

Mrs Adeniran said her daughter was cut open in order to get the results. She said Whitney was menstruating before her death and her menstrual blood was also taken for tests.

She called out Chrisland Schools for making her family go through the trauma due to the autopsy, when they could have just told them how their child died.
