Alleged Viral Child Molestation Story: Chrisland Schools Releases Statement
The story captured courtroom proceedings on Monday of the trial of Adegboyega Adenekan, the school’s supervisor, who allegedly defiled the female pupil.
A video of the pupil in which she narrated how she was allegedly and serially defiled by Adenekan was played at an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court during the testimony of a clinical psychologist.
In a statement released by Chrisland School,the school claimed that it had put in place measures to protect children and blamed the media for trying to tarnish its brand which has been in existence for about 40 years.
Chrisland School clarified that the alleged incident took place at the Victoria Garden City (VGC) branch of the school and not the Lekki branch as reported in some quarters.
Throwing light on events that transpired in the case, the school said “It all started when a mother alleged that her daughter was molested.
“We were baffled that a mother could keep quiet and not notify the school or report it for two weeks.
“We also wondered why she left the child in the school for a month if indeed she was molested in the same school.”
