The Lagos police say it has invited all parties involved in the Chrisland School sex scandal to the state criminal investigation department (SCID), Panti.
The mother of one of the school’s students had alleged that her 10-year-old daughter was raped during the school’s Dubai trip.
Pupils from the private school located in Victoria Garden City, Lagos were in the UAE to participate in the World School Games between March 10 and 13, 2022.
In a now-viral video, the said mother had further lamented that graphic footage of the alleged rape had gone viral online.
The state’s ministry of education had earlier ordered the closure of the school and warned the general public against circulating the minors’ footage.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson of the Lagos police, had said the force had begun a probe on the matter.
But in a follow-up on the case, the PPRO confirmed to TheCable Lifestyle on Tuesday that all parties involved in the case had been summoned to the SCID for interrogation.
The parties involved, it is understood, include the school’s head teacher and the parents of the female student who alleged that their daughter was sexually abused.
It is expected that the parties would give a written statement on the facts of the scandal.
Earlier, Akin Fadeyi, a member of Chrisland School’s advisory board, said there was no rape involved in the infamous sex scandal.
He said 76 students had been enlisted for the Dubai trip and 71 of that figure had abided by its code of conduct.
The board member said male and female students had been kept seven floors apart in the hotel where they lodged.
Fadeyi also said disciplinary actions had been dealt against the remaining five students who flouted its pre-set rules.
