The Lagos State government has given a reason why Chrisland School, Ikeja, Lagos, will remain shut.

Commissioner for Education, Folasade Adefisayo, in a statement at the weekend, said the school would remain shut until the Lagos State government is satisfied that the lives of students in the school are not endangered and other safety concerns are addressed.

Adefisayo also said a number of steps had been taken by the Lagos government since February 10 when it got the report of the death of Whitney Adeniran, a 12-year-old pupil of the school.

The statement read in part, “On February 10, 2023, the Lagos State government received a report of the death of Whitney Omodesola Adeniran, a 12-year-old student of Chrisland High School, who was said to have slumped during her school’s inter-house sports competition on February 9, 2023.
