Chrisland: Lagos rules out exhuming pupil’s corpse, awaits legal advice

Chrisland School: Lagos Govt. shuts school over Whitney Adeniran’s death, father alleges cover-up

The Lagos State Government said it would oppose the exhumation of the corpse of Miss Whitney Adeniran, the 12-year-old student of Chrisland Schools, Opebi, Lagos State, who died during the school’s inter-house sports in February.

The government made the disclosure on Saturday in a statement by the Director of Public Affairs in the state Ministry of Justice, Mrs Grace Alo.

The state said the justice ministry was aware of an ongoing dialogue about an alleged plan to exhume the body of the student.

It said the ministry had yet to receive any official communication requesting for the exhumation.

The government said it would oppose such a request if and when received.

“The circumstances for exhumation under the Coroners’ Systems Law 2015, do not arise in this case.

“Additionally, it is not our intention to further traumatise the deceased’s family.

“We are working closely with the police who have given their reassurance that the duplicate case file would be forwarded on March 6 to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions to aid speedy issuance of legal advice,” it added.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that a post-mortem report issued by the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital on March 1 about the student revealed the cause of her death as asphyxia and electrocution.

The student died during Chrisland Schools’ inter-house sports on February 9 at Agege Stadium, Lagos State.

Asphyxia is a breathing impairment that occurs when there is insufficient oxygen in the body.
