The Lagos State Government has announced the shutdown of Chrisland Schools after the release of the viral sex tape involving pupils during the World School Games, a four-day annual competition among schools from all over the world held in Dubai.
The occurrence was brought into the limelight by Ubi Franklin, a music manager after he accused the school of being complicit in a case of sexual violation allegedly involving a male pupil and a minor female pupil.
In a statement released by the Lagos State Government, it was disclosed that an investigation has been launched by the Lagos State Police.
"The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to the alleged sexual violence case involving students of Chrisland Schools which occurred in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
"It is pertinent to note that all allegations are being investigated by the relevant Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, including the Ministry of Education, Office of Education Quality Assurance, Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Ministry of Justice, and the Lagos State Domestic & Sexual Violence Agency, whilst the criminal allegations have been escalated to the Commissioner of Police.
"In view of the allegations, we are committed to ensuring that adequate medical and psycho-social support is provided.
"This is to reassure members of the public of the State Government’s commitment to safety and child protection, especially in ensuring that all child-centered institutions within the state, formulate and implement policies and systems that are compliant with the Executive Order (NO.EO/AA08 of 2016), Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Program.
"We also use this medium to remind the general public that any person who engages in any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a child, commits an offence and is liable to a custodial sentence of fourteen (14) years.
"This includes “producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing an image of child pornography.
