Chrisland is in the news for the rape of a 10 year old girl, but something must really be wrong with this school as a supervisor was jailed in 2019 for defiling a 2 year old.
Adegboyega Adenekan, 47, a supervisor at the Chrisland School, Victoria Garden City, Lagos State. was jailed 60 years for defiling a 2-year-old child.
In the year 2019, Justice Sybil Nwaka of an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court handed down the sentence, convicting Adenekan on a count charge of defilement.
She held that evidence before the court showed that the supervisor was guilty as charged.
He pleaded not guilty on arraignment on Jan. 29, 2018.
“This defendant is conscienceless, wicked, an animal, and not fit to walk on the streets.
“I hereby sentence Adegboyega Adenekan to 60 years’ imprisonment. This is the sentence of the court,” the judge held.
Nwaka said that schools should not only be interested in economic gain but the welfare of pupils.
“Schools should not cover up teachers who sexually abuse children.
“Parents should not be carried away by aesthetics of schools. This case may just be the tip of the iceberg as a lot of our children are suffering in silence.
“Parents should be bold enough to confront teachers and school management because a lot of our children are suffering in silence.
“I advise or recommend that the education and social welfare ministry workers should visit schools randomly to give them a check.”
Chrisland brutal rape case of 10 year old girl – school must be shut down forever
The mother of a Chrisland School female pupil who was gang-raped and recorded has cried out to the public for help.
The 10-year-old victim was assaulted by male students during a trip to Dubai organized by the school.
The woman said the daughter narrated how they went out in the morning for breakfast and one of the boys, Kachi, begged her to borrow him her phone charger.
“(Later) After dinner, Kachi called her room that she should come and take her charger. She went there for her charger. When she got into the room, one of them said she should take her charger from the toilet.
“They hijacked her and told her to take a substance, so they were all under the influence. She said after that, she did not know what she was doing again. They told her to be climbing them and someone stood there videoing and posting it out.”
The mother recalled that in March, the school management invited her for interaction but didn’t mention what actually occurred.
“About a month ago, I was on my way out of Lagos when I got a call from Mrs Azike, the Head Teacher of Chrisland. I went two days later. When I got to the school, I met her with two women in her office.
“One introduced herself as Mrs Kemi, they said they came from Chrisland headquarters. I said ‘Okay’. I asked if there was a problem, they said ‘No’
“That they just wanted me to know that my daughter whom I left in their care, that they took to Dubai kissed a boy and the boy kissed her. That it was from truth and dare.
“They said I should take it from her so they won’t keep practising that. I said I’ll do that and asked if there’s something else, and they said ‘No’. Mrs Kemi told me not to tell my husband.
“I left but they took my daughter elsewhere to interrogate her without my consent. They’ve been threatening that if she speaks out, they are going to kill her. That’s it is a men’s world and she shouldn’t disclose it to me.
“My daughter was dying in silence I didn’t know. They took her to go and do a pregnancy test and lied it was a COVID test, almost three times.
“Because we have started confronting them that we are aware of what they did, the school sent her a suspension letter”, she said in tears.
