We also note the impact of this unfortunate event on family, friends, and acquaintance of Whitney and call for calm as we assure that no effort will be spared in investigating the incident.”

Recall that the 12-year-old pupil of the school died during a sports event on Thursday.

Also, the deceased’s mother, Blessing, had accused Chrisland of negligence and questioned the school’s narrative of what transpired.

She said the school made no provision for emergency response at the sports venue and failed to administer first aid, adding that her daughter had no pre-existing heart condition despite the doctor’s allusion to a cardiac arrest.

Saturday night, the father of the deceased pupil, Michael Adeniran, had taken to social media, demanding a probe into the death of his daughter.

Reacting to public criticism following the 12-year-old student’s death, the school management said Whitney had reported “not-too-buoyant” health on January 20, contrary to claims by her parents.

The school said it opted to take her to a health centre, and not a hospital, based on proximity.

Chrisland dismissed insinuations that there was foul play in Whitney’s death while citing that she slumped in public.

It had said:
Our immediate response was to take advantage of proximity by identifying the nearest medical facility to take her to, where the doctor on duty administered oxygen and every aid possible to her.”
