She said her daughter was gang raped by her peers, someone recorded the act and posted it online.

The sorrowful mother accused the school making attempt to cover up the incident by threatening her daughter not to talk to anyone about the incident or else she would be killed.

She said they conducted a pregnancy test on the girl while ostensibly saying that they were carrying out a covid test on her.

According to her, that the girl gave her charger to one Kachi, who asked her to come for the charger in the night in the boys’ room which the outrageous sex act took place.

“My child attends Chrislam School VGC. Good evening mothers, good evening to everybody to fellow Nigerians, I am making out this cry to every one to help me out.

“About a month ago, I was on my way out of Lagos, so I got a call from Mrs Azike, the head teacher of the school. She told me that she needed to see me, I said okay I would come when I return.
“So two days after, I came to the school, and met her with two other women in her office. One introduced herself as Mrs Kemi, that they came from Chrisland headquarters

“They just wanted me to know that my daughter whom I left in their care, that they took to Dubai, had a kiss with a boy and the boy kissed her. That they got that thing from true and dare.

“That what they wanted me to do was to take her phone from her so that she won’t do that again.

“I said okay, if it is just that I will get the phone from her. Even Mrs Kemi told me that I should not tell my husband, that it is not every thing women disclose to their husband.

“So I said ok, as long as this is just kissing, and that I will caution my daughter so I left them. I thought everything was fine.

“I left but they took my daughter elsewhere to interrogate her without my consent. They’ve been threatening that if she speaks out, they are going to kill her. That’s it is a men’s world and she shouldn’t disclose it to me.

“My daughter was dying in silence I didn’t know. They took her to go and do a pregnancy test and lied it was a COVID test, almost three times.

“Because we have started confronting them that we are aware of what they did, the school sent her a suspension letter”, she said in tears.
