Chrisland Schools: My daughter was gang-raped in Dubai — Mother

Mother of a pupil of Chrisland Schools in Lagos, who was suspended for participating in sexual activity, has alleged that her daughter was gang-raped and was not in her senses during the act.

The school, in a letter dated April 14 by the principal, said the pupil exhibited “improper behaviour” with her peers during a truth-or-dare game at the World Games in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) where they attended a competition.

Clips of the sexual activity have since gone viral on social media.

Reacting to the indefinite suspension handed to her daughter, the mother, whose name could not be immediately confirmed, said: “When my daughter explained to me what happened, she said that they went out in the morning to have breakfast and one of the boys, Kachi, begged her to borrow him her phone charger which she obliged. After they had dinner, Kachi called her room that she should come and take her charger. She went there for her charger.

“When she got into the room, one of them said she should take her charger from the toilet it was when she entered the toilet, that they hijacked her and told her to take a substance, so they were all under the influence. She said after that she did not know what she was doing again. They told her to be climbing them and someone stood there videoing them and posting it out.

“A parent called me that she needed to see me urgently. I went to her house and she told me that something had been trending in Chrisland and she believes I was not aware. The woman showed me the video and told me that all the parents are aware. Immediately I informed my husband.

“Please I am begging Nigerians to help me because Chrisland was trying to hide this issue. They were trying to push us out of the way and my daughter was affected psychologically. Please I need help as a mother. I am begging fellow Nigerians to help me.”

Speaking further, she said, “They have been threatening my daughter that if she speaks out they are going to kill her. That it is a man’s world and nothing would happen. My daughter was dying in silence.”

According to the school, others involved in the act have also been suspended.
