Popular Nigerian dancer, Kaffy Shafau, has revealed that she will be withdrawing her daughter from Chrisland School following the death of a 12-year-old student of the school, Whitney Adeniran.
Taking to her official Instagram page, the celebrity dancer shared a video where she spoke on the unfortunate incident that led to the death of Whitney Adeniran and how the school handled the situation.
Recall that Whitney died during the school’s interhouse sports in February. The school had claimed she slumped; however, an autopsy carried out on her body to ascertain the cause of her death revealed she was electrocuted.
Reacting to the tragic incident, Kaffy bemoaned the school’s negligence and their lack of empathy in the video she shared.
According to her, the negative reports about the school are becoming too many, with the institution not showing any effort to make amends.
