A female student has been suspended by Chrisland School, Lagos for allegedly engaging in an “immoral act”.
However, the student’s mother claimed her daughter was raped by some male students of the school in a room.
The female student, whose identity was hidden because she is a minor, was videotaped while the “immoral act” was ongoing.
The video of the incident was later shared on social media.
A copy of the suspension letter obtained by our correspondent accused the female student of taking part in a Truth or Dare game which led to the “immoral act” when they went to Dubai to participate in the World School Games held between March 10 and 13, 2022.
When contacted, authorities of Chrisland School on Victoria Garden City failed to speak.
“We will get back to you on the matter. We will issue a press release soon,” a female voice who picked up the official telephone number of the school responded.
The letter of suspension dated April 14, 2022, was signed by the Head Teacher, G. I. Azike, and titled, Indefinite suspension of …(the female student).”
It read in part, “It was discovered that your daughter was involved in improper behaviour during the recently concluded World School Games in Dubai with a few of her counterparts wilfully participated in a game they called Truth or Dare’, a game which led her and a few other co-learners to carry out an immoral act after the lights-out instruction was given.
“In line with our core values centred on discipline, Chrisland Schools have zero tolerance for any improper behaviour and misconduct. A full-scale investigation has been done and the parents of all the culpable learners have been duly notified of the necessary punishment meted out on the learners.
“The parents gave their full cooperation realising the need to work with the school so that the learners can be corrected and be of expected proper behaviour henceforth.
“However, in the course of the school’s efforts to see how best we can help…who was a major participant in the whole incident, every effort to inform you as her parents about the incident and ensure that this improper behaviour is permanently corrected, has proved to be futile.
“We cannot as a school condone such. Consequently, (the student) is hereby placed on an indefinite suspension until you as the parents ensure that she is punished, adequately counselled and rehabilitated.”
