Rita Enemuru, Reporting

The Lagos State government has shut down all Chrisland Schools in the state over the offensive sex tape of a 10-year-old pupil of the school that has gone viral.

In a statement signed by the Ministry of Education Office of Education Quality Assurance on Monday, the state said that all Chrisland schools within the state are closed pending further investigations.

In the statement, the state government said the shutting down of the schools was to reassure members of the public that the state government was committed in ensuring safety and child protection.

Chrisland School had earlier suspended a 10-year-old female pupil (name withheld) for taking part in a truth-or-dare game in Dubai.

The school announced the girl’s suspension in a letter to her parent, describing her conduct as “improper behaviour.”

It was learnt that students from the elite high school had earlier gone to Dubai to participate in the World School Games between March 10-13, 2022.

“The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to the alleged sexual violence case involving students of Chrisland School which occurred in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

“It is pertinent to note that all allegations are being investigated by the relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies, including Ministry of Education, Office of Education Quality Assurance, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Ministry of Justice and the Lagos State Domestic & Sexual Violence Agency, whilst the criminal allegations have been escalated to the Commissioner of Police.

“In view of the allegations, we are committed to ensuring that adequate medical and pscyho social support is provided.

“This is to reassure members of the public of the State Government’s commitment to safety and child protection, especially in ensuring that all child-centered institutions within the state, formulate and implement policies and systems that are compliant with the Executive Order (NO.EO/AA08 of 2016), Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Program.

“We also use this medium to remind the general public that any person who engages in any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a child, commits an offence, is liable to custodial sentence of fourteen (14) years. This includes “producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing an image of child pornography”.

“In the meantime, all Chrisland schools within Lagos State are hereby closed, pending further investigations,” it stated.
