Lagos State Government through the Ministry of Education has again ordered the temporary closure of Chrisland School, Opebi-Ikeja.

“We also note the impact of this unfortunate event on family, friends and acquaintance of Whytney and call for calm as we assure that no effort will be spared in investigating the incident”, the Commissioner stated.
