Blessing Adeniran, mother of 12-year-old student of Chrisland High School in Ikeja, Lagos state, Whitney Adeniran, who died while attending the school’s Inter house sports held at the Agege Stadium on 9th February, 2023, has stated that the result from the autopsy conducted on her daughter, revealed she died of electrocution.
She called out Chrisland Schools for making her family go through the trauma of undergoing an autopsy, when they could have just told them how their child died. She also said all those who “insulted, bullied and humiliated” her with the narrative that her daughter was sick prior to her death, will be judged by God.
In a video posted on 11th February, 2023, the mum of the deceased said she was at the event to watch her daughter participate, but became worried when she didn’t see her daughter during the match past as well as other sporting events. Mrs. Adeniran said she decided to go where the students were all kept to check on her child, and when she got there, she was told by a male student that a certain Whitney fainted and had been rushed to the hospital.
Whitney’s mother said her daughter was not ill prior to the inter-house sports day and when she asked the doctor at the hospital the cause of her daughter’s death, the doctor said it appears to be cardiac arrest.
“My daughter was butchered for autopsy. She was opened up. They took part of her kidney, liver, stomach contents, blood, brain, bone marrow. Omodesola was butchered just because Chrisland kept protecting their reputation.”
