Chrisland School, which prides itself as the largest privately owned educational institution in Nigeria, is in the news for the wrong reasons.
The development broke after music executive, Ubi Franklin, exposed a disturbing rape saga involving a minor.
Specifically, he had shared the story of how his friend’s 10-year-old daughter was raped during a school competition in Dubai. In a series of tweets, Ubi mentioned that the little girl was selected to represent her school in a competition in Dubai. He said while at the competition, the girl was raped by a group of fellow students.
She was also video taped and the video was posted on Instagram a month ago.
According to Ubi, the distraught parents found out after another parent in the school alerted them.
”Just got off the phone with a friend of mine. His 10 year old daughter was selected to represent her school at the World School Games in Dubai. His daughter was r**ped by fellow students, video taped and posted on Instagram…The school concealed it for a month.
”He found out on his own when another parent called his wife and showed his wife the video of his 10 year old daughter being circulated on Instagram. I have spent the last 1hour listening to confessional statements by some teachers… I am begging this should rather be a dream.”
In an update given, Ubi said the school authorities suspended the female student who was raped.
Meanwhile, 1st News can report that the institution involved in the saga is Chrisland School; despite the fact that Ubi Franklin failed to specifically identify it as such.
A letter obtained by the Peoples Gazette documents the school formally notifying the parents of the young girl of her suspension; for allegedly joining ”a few other co-learners to carry out immoral act after the lights out instruction was given”. It has now emerged that the girl joined other students of Chrisland School to play a game of ‘truth or dare’; which led to her being gang-raped by the minors.
Thereafter, the 10-year-old female pupil was suspended by the school. This came after she was allegedly taken for a pregnancy test without the knowledge of her parents. Reports indicate that the boys involved have also been suspended.
The pupils had visited Dubai in March to participate in the World School Games which held between March 10-13, 2022.
The school was celebrated for carrying out an impressive display and winning about 34 medals, the Peoples Gazette reports. 1st News reports that Chrisland School has emerged as one of the top trending topics on Twitter since the news broke.
Below is a copy of the letter written by authorities of Chrisland School to the girl’s parents.
