No plan to exhume Whitney Adeniran- Chrisland Schools
CITIZENS COMPASS– THE management of Chrisland Schools has said it does not have any plan to exhume the body of its late student, Whitney Adeniran which was recently buried by her family members.
The School made this known barely 24 hours after Lagos State government issued a statement nullifying any purported plan by individuals or groups to exhume the remains of the pupil in any form.
The school authorities in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday, March 5, 2023, said it is not in it’s plan to exhume the remains of the pupil of Chrisland High School in Ikeja, who died on February 9, 2023, during a sports event in Agege.
Citizens Compass has reported that Blessing Adeniran, Whitney’s mother, had accused Chrisland Schools of negligence saying she suspected foul play about the death.
Whitney’s death brought about confusion as the school authorities insists she died a natural death.
Consequently, the state ministry of education had ordered a temporary closure of the school pending an investigation.
Few days ago, the state government revealed that an autopsy conducted on February 15, 2023, revealed that the pupil died of asphyxia and electrocution.
Over the weekend, the state government subsequently, suspected the plans seeking to exhume the remains of the girl.
In what appears to be a response to this, the Chrisland management says it has no such plan to exhume Whitney’s body
It added, in the statement that effort is instead underway to immortalise Whitney’s name in the school.
We vehemently refute the claim making the rounds that Chrisland intends to exhume Whitney’s body.
We have no such plan and assure the public that we are also parents in mourning and will not do or subscribe to anything that paints such insensitive optics that prevents our dear daughter from resting.
“We assure you all that no such thing will happen. Plans are underway to immortalize Whitney’s name so she can remain indelible in our consciousness.”
“The management of Chrisland School is aware of the developments around the autopsy report.
We are deeply saddened and sorry about Whitney’s death. We are remorseful and sorry to Whitney’s parents.
“We are sorry to our parents and the entire community that hosts our school. We are also very sorry to the nation at large. It was a huge loss to the School.
“We express an equal measure of apology to the Nigeria Media, another critical stakeholder, in case we have sent unbearably quiet signals.”
