Chrisland to Lagos: No Plans to Exhume Whitney Adeniran’s Corpss

The administration of Chrisland School has stated that it has no plans to exhume Whitney Adeniran’s body.

The Chrisland Group operates a variety of well regarded schools in Lagos and Abuja, with branches in Ikeja, Victoria Garden City, Lekki, Festac Area (Amuwo-Odofin), and Idimu.

Whitney Adeniran, an Ikeja student at Chrisland High School, passed away on February 9 while participating in a sporting event in Agege.

Blessing Adeniran, Whitney’s mother, accused Chrisland of negligence at the competition that led to her death.

Consequently, the state ministry of education ordered a temporary closure of the school pending an investigation.

It later revealed that an autopsy conducted on February 15 shows the girl died from asphyxia and electrocution.

State officials, subsequently, raised an alarm that they learned of a dialogue seeking to exhume the body of the girl.

In what appears to be a response to this, the Chrisland management says it has no such plan to exhume Whitney.

It added, in a statement that effort is instead underway to immortalise Whitney’s name in the school.

It said, “We vehemently refute the claim making the rounds that Chrisland intends to exhume Whitney’s body.

We have no such plan and assure the public that we are also parents in mourning and will not do or subscribe to anything that paints such insensitive optics that prevents our dear daughter from resting.

“We assure you all that no such thing will happen. Plans are underway to immortalize Whitney’s name so she can remain indelible in our consciousness.”

The school, while reacting to the outcome of the autopsy, expressed its remorse about Whitney’s death.

The statement reads, “The management of Chrisland School is aware of the developments around the autopsy report,”.

“We are deeply saddened and sorry about Whitney’s death. We are remorseful and sorry to Whitney’s parents.

“We are sorry to our parents and the entire community that hosts our school. We are also very sorry to the nation at large. It was a huge loss to the School.

“We express an equal measure of apology to the Nigeria Media, another critical stakeholder, in case we have sent unbearably quiet signals.”
