The Chrisland School Video and what to know about Chrisland School R*pe Video
Newsone reports that Chrisland Schools is a conglomerate of schools providing education for Nursery, Primary and Secondary School students from across Nigeria, but with facilities situated in Lagos and Abuja.
Ubi Franklin on his Twitter page @ubifranklin1 revealed that the parents found out after another parent in the school alerted them. The girl was selected to represent her school at the World School Games in Dubai when the incident happened; he said.
The music manager said, “Just got off the phone with a friend of mine, his 10-year-old daughter was selected to represent her school at the World School Games in Dubai. His daughter was r*ped by fellow students, video tapped and posted on Instagram, and the school concealed it for a month”.
Ubi added, “He found out (referring to his friend) on his own when another parent called his wife and showed his wife the video of his 10-year-old daughter being circulated on Instagram in what has now been tagged as the Chrisland school video saga by Netizens.
“I have spent the last one hour listening to confessional statements by some teachers, and I am begging.
“UPDATE ON MY PREVIOUS POST”, Ubi continued, “This school took the girl from her parents that they wanted to conduct a Covid test and the school rather took the girl for a pregnancy test. As we speak, the girl has been SUSPENDED from the school. Some things don’t make sense at all”.

With no mention of r*pe, the school added that other students who took part in the games had been suspended and that the girl and her parents did not take cooperate in the investigation.
