Chrisland School Sex Scandal: Lagos State issued a warning about possessing a child pornography photograph.

 

The Lagos State government has ordered Chrisland Schools to close indefinitely due to rape claims.

 

During a trip to Dubai, a 10-year-old student at the school was allegedly raped by her classmates.

 

On social media, the incident generated indignation, with many people urging the government to intervene.

 

The state Ministry of Education said in a statement on Monday that an investigation into the situation was ongoing.

The state government disclosed that the allegations of sexual violence involving students of Chrisland School are being investigated by the relevant ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs), including the 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.

 

The statement, jointly signed by the MDAs, revealed that the criminal allegations had been escalated to the Commissioner of Police.

 

“In view of the allegations, we are committed to ensuring that adequate medical and psychosocial 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.

 

The State Government therefore reminded the general public that anyone who engages in any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a child commits an offence and is liable to a custodial sentence of years. “This includes producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing an image of child pornography.”

 

The Daily Trust had earlier contacted the school for its reaction to the incident.
A representative of the school who spoke over the phone said, “Yes, this is Chrisland School. I am not permitted to speak on the issue. We will soon release an official statement. Thank you. “
