Recall that a female pupil was suspended by her school management for alleged “immoral act” with other schoolmates during a trip in Dubai.
Her mother, on the other hand, claimed that her daughter was raped in a room by some of her male colleagues and that the incident was videotaped.
She said in a recent story published by Digital Information Media that her daughter has been threatened by the school administration to keep short or face consequences. She further claimed that the school is attempting to keep the case hidden from the general public.
The victim, whose identity was withheld by the school administration due to her age, was allegedly involved in the conduct and was suspended from school.
As of the time of filing this report, the video of the incident had already gone viral on social media, with many Nigerians criticizing the act and requesting that the police investigate the matter on time.
However, it was reported that the female student was involved in a game that led to the act while in Dubai for the World School Games, which take place every year in March.
When contacted by The Punch newspaper, the school administration refused to comment on the case, stating that they would respond within a certain time frame.
The suspension letter issued by the school to the pupil family was dated April 14, 2022 and was signed by the school head teacher, Mr. G.I Azike, and titled “Infinite Suspension of…(the female pupil)
Read the full suspension letter below:
“It was discovered that your daughter was involved in improper behaviour during the recently concluded World School Games in Dubai with a few of her counterparts wilfully participated in a game they called Truth or Dare’, a game which led her and a few other co-learners to carry out an immoral act after the lights-out instruction was given.
“In line with our core values centred on discipline, Chrisland Schools have zero tolerance for any improper behaviour and misconduct. A full-scale investigation has been done and the parents of all the culpable learners have been duly notified of the necessary punishment meted out on the learners.
“The parents gave their full cooperation realising the need to work with the school so that the learners can be corrected and be of expected proper behaviour henceforth.
“However, in the course of the school’s efforts to see how best we can help who was a major participant in the whole incident, every effort to inform you as her parents about the incident and ensure that this improper behaviour is permanently corrected, has proved to be futile.
“We cannot as a school condone such. Consequently, (the student) is hereby placed on an indefinite suspension until you as the parents ensure that she is punished, adequately counselled and rehabilitated.”
