All parties involved in the alleged sexual abuse of a 10-year-old primary six pupil of Chrisland Schools met yesterday at the Ministry of Education in the Alausa area of Lagos State.

An impeccable source at the meeting which started at 2:30pm and was still ongoing as of the time of filing this report told newsmen that officials of the Education Quality Assurance and those of the Directorate of Public Prosecution are interrogating representatives of the school management as well as the parents of the affected pupils.

While none of the pupils involved was in attendance at the meeting, the school management, the parents and other parties will subsequently report to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti.

A mother had alleged that her daughter was sexually abused during the school’s participation in the World School Games at Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Though the school management said the female pupil was among 76 pupils that represented the school at the Dubai event, which was held between March 8 and 14, 2022, it said the allegation of rape was false.

Rather, the school located in the Victoria Garden City area of the state said two pupils of the school engaged in what the school described as “sexual misconduct” in a game called ‘Truth or Dare,’ when the act occurred after lights out.

The school authorities subsequently suspended the female student (name withheld) indefinitely, stating that she was “a major actor” in the “immoral act”.
