A post by one Michael Adeniran is generating wild reactions on social media as the post is that of the father of a 12-year-old student of Chrisland International Schools, Whitney Adeniran.

Adeniran alleged that his daughter, Whitney died during the school’s inter-house sports activities on Thursday at the Agege stadium.

He further claimed that no one offered any explanation to the family, particularly adding that what remained a mystery to them was that his wife was present at the stadium, but the school did not call her attention to the incident as at when it happened.

However, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, explained that the incident was reported at the pen cinema police station.

Also, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi has directed that the case be transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba for discreet investigation.

Meanwhile, the school, in a statement on Sunday, condoled with the parents of the deceased students saying it awaits the outcome of an independent post mortem process.

In a related development, Lagos State Government has ordered the shutdown of Chrisland International School pending the outcome of the investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of a pupil, Whitney Adeniran, who died during the school’s inter-house sports at Agege stadium, in the Agege area of the state.

The State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, who confirmed the development to newsmen, said investigations are still ongoing on the matter but as a first step, Chrisland School will be shut down today to allow for a full investigation.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner for Education, Folasadee Adefisayo, has spoken with the father of the child to sympathise with him and commiserate with the family.
