12-Yr-Old Whitney Slumped In Public View, Nothing Hidden — Chrisland mgt

The management of Chrisland Schools has exonerated themselves of any culpability around the death of 12-year-old Miss Whitney Adediran who allegedly slumped during a sporting event on the school premises.

While consoling the parents of the student, the school noted that the said student had last month complained of being sick, and was taken home by the father, before the recent event that saw her faint and slump in the presence of people at the event.

“The management and staff of Chrisland Schools limited are heartbroken and distressed over the death of our precious student, Whitney Adeniran whose painful exit occurred on Thursday, February 9, 2023.

“Whitney was one of our day students who opted not to participate in the inter-house sports march past for reasons we were not very sure about. However, on discretion, we respected her decision to err on the side of caution because, on the 20th of January, it is in our records that she complained about not-too-buoyant health and we immediately contacted her parents. Her father, Mr Michael Adeniran came to the school to take her home. We emphasized to her parents to take a critical look at her.

“It is instructive to state that Whitney slumped in public view and not under any hidden circumstances whatsoever. Our immediate response was to take advantage of proximity by identifying the nearest medical facility to take her to, where the doctor on duty administered oxygen and every aid possible to her.

“Even as her family made funeral plans for an immediate burial, we differed politely and reiterated the need to establish a scientific verification of the underlying cause of death as required in circumstances like this. We immediately notified regulatory stakeholders and agencies to allow for a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of the developments.

“In spite of the compelling imperatives to fill any information gaps in public space, we stopped short of making any media sensation out of this because the deceased in question was minor and deserving of our unqualified respect. We also prioritized respect for the privacy of the family and were with them consistently to mourn together.

“As parents, We feel the deep pain of this loss and our thoughts are with the family and friends of this wonderful girl. As we continue to uphold the sobriety of this moment. We resist any urge to join issues or trend her treasured memory on media traffic.

“As we eagerly await the outcome of an independent post-mortem process, we remain unwaveringly committed to supporting the family at this critical moment and pray fervently for the fortitude to bear this painful loss. ” said the management.

Meanwhile, the father of Miss Whitney Adediran, 12, a student of Chrisland International High School, Opebi, Lagos, Dr Michael Adediran, has demanded a probe into the death of his daughter during the school’s sporting competition last Thursday.

Adediran, in a message shared on social media at the weekend, said the call became necessary because of the circumstances surrounding the death of the girl.

He said he gave the school a healthy child and was surprised that the girl was returned dead.

He said, “Good day Nigerians. This is a call to all well-meaning Nigerians to come to my aid. All bloggers, all media and all government agencies. Ministry of Justice, DSS and every intelligence agency. All human rights activists. This is a call to all of you. If you are reading this information kindly come to my aid.

“My name is Dr Micheal Adeyemi Adeniran, I am the father of 12-year-old Whitney Adeniran who died at Chrisland International High School, Opebi, Lagos inter-house sport at Agege Stadium.
