We are sorry – The Chrisland School apologizes for the death of Whitney Adeniran

The management of Chrisland International High School in Lagos has apologized for the death of one of its students, Whitney Adeniran.

Whitney Adeniran, died at Ajiji Stadium on February 9, 2023 during the school’s intramural sports competition.

The father of the deceased, Dr. Michael Adeyemi Adeniran, said the 12-year-old had no health condition or illness until the time the school bus picked her up to attend the event.

The Lagos State Government, in a statement to the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice Moyosur Onigbanjo San, on Thursday revealed that the autopsy report issued by the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital showed that the cause of death of the pupil revealed asphyxiation and electrocution.

“We’re sorry,” the school said Sunday, in a now-deleted social media post. We are deeply saddened and sorry for the passing of Whitney. We are so sorry and sorry for Whitney’s parents. We feel sorry for the community that hosts our school and Nigeria in general. It was a huge loss for Chrisland.

“We similarly express our apologies to our other important stakeholders, Nigeria Media, for the quiet, unbearable signals. We remained silent because Whitney’s death was so shocking, we chose introspection and moral rectitude over strutting around the media space to capture the narrative. We considered it It is necessary to give the entire Adaniran family the honor of their privacy.”

While refuting the claim that the school intended to exhume Whitney’s body. Management said: “We have no such plan and assure the public that we will not engage in things that paint such insensitive optics that prevent our dear daughter from resting.”

“We have continued to deal with Adenirans. We will always be with them to navigate this dark period. To all those who have truly stood by us and their families in this difficult moment, we extend our sincere gratitude.”

However, the school deleted the post on its Instagram page after Whitney’s mother, Blessing Adeniran, implied that the school never loved her daughter because she continued to compete in intramural sports on the day of her death.

In response to the deleted post, she wrote: “Chrislandinsta why did you delete the post? Aren’t you sorry again? But you’ll still get what’s coming for you.”
