The Lagos State Police Command has commenced an investigation into a viral video showing students of Chrisland School, Lagos State, engaging in sexual acts with a minor.
The minor, a 10-year-old student of the school, was allegedly raped and recorded by male students while they were on a school trip in Dubai.
According to a statement issued on Monday by State Police Spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Command has commenced investigations into the matter to establish the identities of the players in the video, the true incident in the video, the geographical location of the incident, the alleged threat to life against a student of the school and circumstances surrounding the alleged repeated pregnancy tests conducted on a student without parental consent.
The mother of the minor had asserted, in a video, that the school authorities threatened her daughter to keep mute and also took her daughter for pregnancy tests without her knowledge.
“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,” she alleged.
The Command is taking cognizance of the cybercrime angle to the whole episode and would not hesitate to enlist the support of the Interpol should the need arise. For a holistic and unbiased investigation, the Command shall be working with relevant ministries, departments, agencies, and non-governmental organizations, SP Hundeyin noted.
Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has assured that due diligence would be observed to ensure that there is no miscarriage of justice.
