A 12-year-old student of Chrisland International High School, Opebi, Lagos State, Whitney Omodesola Adeniran, has died during the school’s inter-house sport at Agege Stadium on February 9, 2023.
The father of the student, Michael Adeniran, made this known in a Facebook post where he demanded for justice.
According to Adeniran, who solicited the support of the Lagos State Government, media and security agencies, including the Department of State Services, to get to the root of the death of his daughter, Whitney was healthy when she left home for the inter-house sports.
He also expressed shock that there was no provision for any form of health facility at the venue of the event.
He wrote, unedited:
JUSTICE FOR MY DAUGHTER WHITNEY OMODESOLA ADENIRAN. ALL PARENTS PAY ATTENTION.
PLEASE, SHARE AND REPOST THIS MUST GO VIRAL.
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 names are Dr. Micheal Adeyemi Adeniran, I am the father of 12 years old Whitney Adeniran who died at Chrisland International high school, Opebi, Lagos inter-house sport at Agege stadium. On 9th /2/2023 . My daughter’s name is (Whitney Adeniran)
It happened that my daughter attends CHRISLAND HIGH SCHOOL and it was their inter-house sports event yesterday(Thursday) February 9th, 2023 and she dressed up from home, healthy with no health conditions or sickness at all, the school bus came to pick her up to the venue of the event at Agege stadium.
To the biggest shock of my life by 1 pm in the afternoon I got a call from my wife that she was informed that our daughter slumped at the inter-house sport and she was rushed to the clinic…..
My wife was at the venue even before she started.
She was never informed or called until they have conveyed our child out of the venue before they informed her.
On arrival of my wife at the health center where they took my daughter. my daughter was lying dead With her lips black and her tongue black.
My wife called me urgently, I left my office to the place and found my 12year old daughter lying dead on the ground. I asked questions about what happened to my daughter and the school authority could not get me any information as to what happened to my child in their care.
I gave Chrisland school a healthy vibrant young girl what Chrisland returned to me is a dead child. My entire family is in deep sorrow but the school Authority claimed they know nothing about my daughter’s death and all they know is that my daughter slumped and died.
For the general information of the public, Chrisland school held such a magnificent event without a simple fully equipped Ambulance, no paramedics, medical personnel, or no safety corps, no paramedic except a school quack nurse. Who later confess to me that the child died even at the stadium but she can not pronounce her dead because she is not a Doctor.
My question is what happens to my daughter at Agege stadium? As a father, I demand answers from Chrisland international high school. I am in deep pain and sorrow right now. If you are a father you will understand my pain. My daughter is highly loved by us. We cherished her existence and we can never allow an institution to gloss over the death of our daughter.
Since we started asking this question. The school has been asking us to back down from the autopsy and I know they know their way into the system.
I am calling on the pathology department of @lasuth to please be honest with their result.
Lagos State government, Nigerian Government, please intervene.
