The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Obafemi Hamzat, has said there is no reason to shut down Chrisland International School following the death of a student, Whitney Adeniran, in controversial circumstances.
Naija News reports that Hamzat stated this during an appearance on a programme on Channels Television, Sunrise Daily, on Tuesday.
Recall that an autopsy confirmed that Adeniran was electrocuted during the school Inter House sports held at the Agege Stadium in the Agege area of Lagos.
Earlier, the management of the school and the doctor who attended to Adeniran had claimed that the deceased slumped and died of a heart attack
However, the deceased father, Tunde while speaking during an interview with BBC, claimed that his daughter was electrocuted.
Following the development, the Lagos state government ordered the immediate closure of the school pending the outcome of the investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding Adeniran’s death.
A month after the closure, some concerned parents have appealed to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to reopen the school to enable students to catch up with the terms academic calendar.
Speaking during the interview, Hamzat said the government does not have any reason to close down Chrisland permanently despite the number of sad incidents recorded in the school.
The Lagos deputy governor added that the matter is in court and the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) is handling the case on behalf of the state.
