Chrisland School: No plan to exhume Whitney Adeniran’s body

Chrisland School has stated that they have no intention of exhuming the body of Whitney Adeniran, a student who died on February 9 at a sporting event in Agege.

Whitney’s mother, Blessing Adeniran, has stated that she believes the school has been negligent.

The school has been closed temporarily until an inquiry is conducted under the directive of the Lagos State Ministry of Education.

The girl died of both asphyxia and electrocution, according to an autopsy done on February 15.

State officials raised the alarm when they learned of a conversation involving the exhumation of the girl’s body.

Lagos said Whitney’s case doesn’t fit the Coroner system law that would allow this to happen.

Chrisland stated that there were no plans to exhume Whitney’s body, and this statement appears to be a response to the news.

It also stated in a statement to that efforts were being made to immortalise Whitney’s name in the school.

It said, “We vehemently refute the claim making the rounds that Chrisland intends to exhume Whitney’s body.”

“We have no such plan and assure the public that we are also parents in mourning and will not do or subscribe to anything that paints such insensitive optics that prevents our dear daughter from resting.

“We assure you all that no such thing will happen. Plans are underway to immortalise Whitney’s name so she can remain indelible in our consciousness.”

In response to the autopsy results, the school said it was sorry about Whitney’s death.

“The management of Chrisland School is aware of the developments around the autopsy report,” the school said in a statement.

“We are deeply saddened and sorry about Whitney’s death. We are remorseful and sorry to Whitney’s parents.

“We are sorry to our parents and the entire community that hosts our school. We are also very sorry to the nation at large. It was a huge loss to the school.

“We express an equal measure of apology to the Nigeria Media, another critical stakeholder, in case we have sent unbearably quiet signals.”
