Chrisland schools breaks silence over 12-year-old student’s death


The management of Chrisland schools has explained the incident that led to the death of one of their students, Whitney Adeniran, who died during the school’s inter-house sports activities at Agege Stadium, Lagos State, on Thursday.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that Michael Adeniran, Whitney’s father, had taken to social media on Saturday night to demand a probe into the death of his daughter, calling on the Lagos State government and the police to intervene in the matter.

He also demanded Chrisland explain what actually happened to his daughter, adding that she had no health condition or sickness as of the time the school bus picked her up for the event.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident saying, “the matter was reported to the police immediately after the incident occurred.

“The case is presently at the State Criminal Investigation Department and an autopsy is going to be carried out to know the circumstances that led to her death. That’s all the update I have for now.”

Reacting to the call for justice for the deceased, Chrisland released a press statement on Sunday and a copy was made available to our correspondent.

The statement read, “The management and staff of Chrisland Schools Limited, with a deep sense of loss, announce the death of our precious student, Whitney Adeniran; whose painful exit occurred on Thursday, February 9th, 2023.
