How Whitney Adeniran Die? Chrisland Schools Student Cause of Death Explained
Whitney Adeniran Death Cause: The management of Chrisland Schools has narrated how Whitney Adeniran, a 12-year-old student, slumped and died during their inter-house sports competition.
The school in a statement on Sunday mourned the demise of the girl, which it said occurred on Thursday.
“The management and staff of Chrisland Schools Limited, with a deep sense of loss, announce the death of our precious student, Whitney Adeniran; whose painful exit occurred on Thursday, February 9th, 2023,” the statement said.
The school said it was heartbroken and distressed, as Whitney was one of its Day students who opted not to participate in the inter-house sports match past for reasons “we were not very sure of.”
“However, on discretion, we respected her decision to err on the side of caution, because on January 20, 2023, it is in our records that she had complained about not-too-buoyant health and we immediately contacted her parents.
“Her father, Mr Michael Adeniran, came to the school to take her home. We emphasised to her parents to take a critical look at her,” the management explained.
According to Chrisland, Whitney slumped in public view and not under any hidden circumstances, saying that she was rushed to the nearest medical facility for first aid.
The school added that its immediate response was to take advantage of proximity to first-aid, by identifying the nearest medical facility to take her to, where the doctor on duty, administered oxygen and every aid possible on her.
The management explained that it immediately notified regulatory stakeholders and agencies to allow for a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of the developments.
It said in spite of the compelling imperatives to fill any information gaps in public space, the school stopped short of making any media sensation out of this, because the deceased in question, was minor and deserving of its unqualified respect.
“We also prioritised respect for the privacy of the family and were with them consistently, to mourn together. This is a painful loss for all of us,” it said.
The school said it would resist any urge to join issues on her treasured memory, in media trends.
My daughter has never been hospitalised since birth
Dr Michael Adeniran, the biological father of Whitney Adeniran, the Chrisland student that recently died has refuted claims by the school management that her daughter had “not-too-buoyant health” before passing out.
In an exclusive interview with TRIBUNE ONLINE, Dr Adeniran said he has started a legal process to ensure justice is being served on the matter.
“Chrisland should make sure they don’t go and bribe the Pathology department of Lagos State. They are the ones who are refusing and told me not to go (for an autopsy) before. Suddenly, they are coming to tell me that I should make sure the autopsy is done. Meaning that they have gone to bribe their way through. But I will give them a shocker of their life,” Dr Adeniran said.
“(Sobs)… I gave birth to Whitney in 2010 and since that day till date, my daughter has never slept in the hospital.
“If my child is sick who is to know she is sick? The teachers in school or the parents that gave birth to her? So, a child that is healthy, you’re telling me that my child is sick, and emotional.”
He continued; “What I’m engaging with Chrisland now is a battle. Everything I need to do legally has started doing it. And one thing I can guarantee Chrisland is, they should get their lawyers ready, I will get mine ready. They are afraid of going to court because they killed my child.
“If they think they know the judges, justice or know the minister of whatever, I’m ready because I have Nigerians right behind me.”
He further added; “In as much as they know what killed my child and not telling me, the battle line is drawn. They can bribe whoever they want to bribe but they won’t escape this. You killed my child and told me she slumped and died. They have forgotten fellow students are there (as eyewitnesses) and they will talk.
“If you want to shut the mouths of two students, you cannot shut the mouths of 500 students. It can be them tomorrow too. Tell them (referring to our reporter) to get ready.”
Whitney Adeniran Was Electrocuted — Whistleblower Alleges
A student of Chrisland Schools in leaked audio alleges that 12-year-old Whitney Adeniran was electrocuted during the school’s inter-house sports.
This comes after Chrisland Schools released a statement about the circumstances of the death of one of their students.
A whistleblower claimed that her child who wasn’t a student of the school overheard what actually transpired.
Speaking on her findings about the death of Whitney Adeniran, the parent wrote while sharing a leaked audio;
“This is concerning the child that died in Chrisland few days ago. My 12-year-old daughter walked up to me and told me in her words ‘Mummy I do not know why people still attend Chrisland school’ and I asked why?
She then told me a student had collapsed during their inter-house sport; I was surprised cos she doesn’t attend Chrisland so how did she get the information? She then forwarded a particular voice note on snap chat to me.
I listened to it and I was devastated but kept quiet. In the voice note another Chrisland student was gisting her friends what happened at their inter house sport and the deceased child Whitney was mentioned.
The child clearly stated that Whitney went to buy popcorn and cotton candy and touched one of the machines producing either cotton candy or popcorn and she was electrocuted.
She collapsed immediately. And water was poured on her. The story Chrisland is giving is false I have the voice note as evidence.”
