The Lagos State Government has
shut down all Chrisland schools within the state in reaction to the alleged
sexual violence case involving its students.

A statement by the Office of the Lagos State

“The attention of the Lagos
State Government has been drawn to the alleged sexual violence case involving
students of Chrisland school which occurred in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

“It is pertinent to note that
all allegations are being investigated by the relevant Ministries, Departments
and Agencies, including the Ministry of Education, Office of Education Quality
Assurance, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Ministry of Justice and
the Lagos State Domestic & Sexual Violence Agency, whilst the criminal
allegations have been escalated to the Commissioner of Police.

“In view of the allegations,
we are committed to ensuring that adequate medical and psycho-social support is
provided.

“This is to reassure members
of the public of the State Government’s commitment to safety and child protection,
especially in ensuring that all child-centered institutions within the state,
formulate and implement policies and systems that are compliant with the

remind the general public that any person who engages in any visual depiction
of sexually explicit conduct involving a child, commits an offense and is
