Chrisland school principal, others arraigned for manslaughter

Date:

The Lagos State government on Thursday arraigned Chrisland School, Opebi, its principal, vice principal and two employees over the death of one of the school’s pupils, 12-year-old Whitney Adeniran.

The school’s workers who were arraigned before Justice Oyindamola Ogala of the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja include Ademoye Adewale, Kuku Fatai, Mrs. Belinda Amao, Nwatu Ugochi Victoria and Chrisland School Limited.

The defendants were arraigned on two count charges bordering on involuntary manslaughter, reckless and negligent acts preferred against them by the state.

While in the dock, the school’s principal, Mrs. Belinda Amao, broke down in tears as the court and counsel tried to agree on a date for the commencement of the trial.
