Chrisland schoolgirl Whitney Adeniran buried in Lagos

Chrisland School student Whitney Adeniran buried

The student of Chrisland High School in the Opebi area of Lagos State Whitney Adeniran has been buried.

The funeral on Thursday in Lagos followed an autopsy conducted on the child.

Whitney, 12, died on February 9 during the school’s inter-house sports held at Agege Stadium in Lagos.

Her mother Blessing Adeniran said in an Instagram live video on Wednesday that the school made her go through trauma by making her resort to an autopsy to find out the cause of her daughter’s death.

She said, “The autopsy result is out and Desola was electrocuted. My daughter died of electrocution. I have been subjected to trauma for the past two weeks. Tomorrow will make it three weeks my baby died. The school made me think I was crazy. They started pushing the narrative of she was sick; she was sickly. They sent letters and publications out.

“People insulted me and my family. My child was electrocuted to death. I told the school I don’t want trouble. All I want is answers. They came to my house and knelt down.

“I begged, I pleaded, I said ‘Mrs Amao please, I don’t know how autopsy is being done but I have browsed it and the image is scary. Please my daughter is already dead, don’t make me put her through that, they will butcher her. I beg you in the name of God, you are a mother, help me investigate and find out what happened.’”

Videos of the funeral have gone viral on social media.

At the funeral, Mrs Adeniran is seen dressed in black weeping profusely and asking to see her daughter’s corpse in the white coffin.

Lagos State Government has since closed Chrisland school to investigate the incident.
