Chrisland: Autopsy confirms cause of student’s death


Whitney Adeniran, a female student at Chrisland High School in Ikeja, Lagos, who was 12 years old, had her mother confirm the cause of death.

According to Blessing Adeniran, the mother, the investigation revealed that her daughter died from electrocution while participating in school sports at Lagos' Agege Stadium.

Mrs. Adediran stated in a live video posted on her official business Instagram account on Wednesday that an autopsy carried out to determine the circumstances surrounding the death revealed that the cause of death was electrocution.

In response to the controversy surrounding the student's death, the Lagos State Government ordered the school to close for good for two weeks.

Before the autopsy, the student's parents insisted that he or she was fine before leaving home on the specified day. However, the school administration denied any wrongdoing, claiming that the student "slumped" at the stadium.

An alleged effort to cover up?

Mrs. Adediran cried profusely and said that since her daughter's death three weeks ago, she has been traumatized. She added that the school had also contributed to her suffering by allegedly "pushing false narratives to protect their reputation."

She stated They started propagating the narrative that she was ill, and they made me believe I was crazy. I told them that I wanted answers, not trouble. They visited my residence. I knelt and begged, saying that I didn't want my daughter killed for the sake of an autopsy. "I told them my daughter is already dead, and I don't want to put her through that. My husband also told them that we have been hearing rumors of electrocution and asked them to help us investigate these rumors, but they refused."

They wrote to me and my husband in a letter to reassure us that they had done everything in their power to save my daughter's life.

Mrs. Adediran went on to say that the family would take legal action against the school.

Background: The student's parents initially blamed the school administration for their son or daughter's tragic death.

They used social media to appeal to the public for help figuring out what might have caused their daughter's sudden death while she was participating in sporting events.

The student's parents insisted that the student's death was caused by the absence of an ambulance or first responders at the sporting events.

In response, Ike Ofuokwu, Chairman of the School Advisory Board, issued a statement stating that the deceased 12-year-old "slumped in public view and not under any hidden circumstances."

According to Mr. Ofuokwu, "our immediate response was to take advantage of proximity by identifying the closest medical facility to take her to, where the doctor on duty administered oxygen and every possible aid to her."

Whitney, a student at Chrisland who was 12 years old at the time of her death during the school's inter-house sports, was electrocuted, according to Whitney's mother, Blessing Adeniran.

On Wednesday, she made it clear in a live Instagram video.

She stated, "I want to thank everyone for your support, your calls and messages have helped us go through this very difficult period," in the video.

Desola was electrocuted, according to the autopsy report. My daughter was electrocuted and died. I've been traumatized for the past two weeks. Tomorrow marks three weeks since my baby passed away. I was made to feel like I was crazy by the school. They started spreading the story that she was sick; She had a fever. They distributed publications and letters.

My family and I were slammed by others. My child was killed by an electric shock. I informed the school that I don't want any trouble. I only require responses. They knelt when they got to my house.

“I begged, I pleaded, and I said, "Mrs. Amao, please, I don't know how an autopsy is done, but I've looked at it and the image is scary." Please, my daughter has already passed away; don't force me to put her through that because they will kill her. Because you are a mother, I beg you in the name of God to help me investigate and determine what occurred.

She stated that she is unsure. They refused to look into it.

My daughter was killed for the autopsy. She was made to talk. They extracted a portion of her blood, brain, bone marrow, liver, and stomach contents. Chrisland continued to safeguard its reputation, and Omodesola was killed.

The PUNCH had previously reported that Dr. Michael Adeniran, Whitney's father, had claimed that his daughter had been electrocuted before the autopsy.

The deceased was rushed to the closest medical facility for first aid, according to a statement released by the school administration. The statement also stated that the deceased was slumped in "public view and not under any hidden circumstances."
