Obiamaka Chidinma Azubike had called out the boarding secondary school, alleging a cover-up.

She claimed Olashore denied her justice after she was sexually abused by 13 of her colleagues about 18 years ago.

Azubuike was a student of the school between September 1998 and July 2004.

In a statement shared with TheCable Lifestyle on Tuesday, the school said it has inaugurated a five-member panel of inquiry into the sexual assault claim.

The statement, signed by Olapeju Sofowora, chairperson of the Olashore International School Association, stated that the panel is to examine what truly transpired 18 years ago and make recommendations as considered fit.

Those listed as part of the panel are:

  • Olusola Williams, retired judge of the Lagos high court (chairperson)
  • Alero Roberts, lecturer, and public health consultant
  • Adeyinka Adefope, educationist and safeguarding consultant
  • Sade Olajubu, forensic psychiatrist
  • Ebuka Ekeanyanwu, a legal practitioner

Following her claims, Azubuike had demanded the school to issue a public apology to her in print and on social media.

She also asked that Olashore reinstate the records to show that she was a school prefect, a position she claimed to have been stripped of during the case years ago.

Azubike demanded the school to grant a zoom ceremony to award her what she allegedly earned.

It is understood that the probe panel will begin sitting immediately and conclude their inquiry within eight weeks.
