The Nigeria Police Command in Lagos State on Monday said it was investigating the alleged viral rape video purportedly depicting pupils of Chrisland School, Lagos.
The Command’s spokesman, Benjamin Hundey, said in a statement that the State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, ordered the investigation.
Recall that a video of a 10-year-old female pupil of Chrisland School, allegedly raped by fellow male pupils during a trip to Dubai, UAE, went viral recently.
The incident reportedly happened when the pupils traveled to Dubai to participate in the World School Games from March 10 to 13, where the school won over 30 medals.
Mr Hundey quoted the police boss as saying that the investigation would establish the identities of the players in the video, the true incident in the video, and the geographical location of the incident.
The investigation will also cover the alleged threat to life against a pupil of the school and circumstances surrounding the alleged repeated pregnancy tests conducted on a pupil without parental consent.
“The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to an alleged rape video purportedly depicting students of Chrisland School, Lagos, going viral on social media.
“The command is equally taking cognisance of the cybercrime angle to the whole episode and will not hesitate to enlist the support of the Interpol should the need arises.
“For a holistic and unbiased investigation, the command shall be working with relevant ministries, departments, agencies, and non-governmental organisations,” he said.
He gave the assurance that due diligence would be observed to ensure that there was no miscarriage of justice.
