Following Mercy Johnsons’ outburst on social media, the management of Chrisland School in Lagos disclosed that it is investigating the claim the Nollywood actress made against a teacher in the school.
On Friday, the actress called out a teacher for bullying her 8-year-old daughter in school.
Mercy accused the staff of intimating her daughter for being a “celebrity’s child”.
In light of this outburst, the school via a statement disclosed that the case will be thoroughly investigated.
Akin Fadeyi, a member of the school’s advisory board, said the matter is currently under investigation.
According to him, the Fadeyi school is bent on utilising every information it gets to get to the root of the matter.
He further indicated that the school has put some measures in place in order to engage affected parties in the matter.
The statement reads: “We are not unaware of the development at one of our schools which led to a social media incidence involving one of our pupils’ parents.”
“In other not to jump in the fray or rush to the media with half truths which may be unjust to all concerned, we are working on every available information at our disposal to investigate what actually took place to enable us establish the veracity of each claim and true state of things.
“This, we have swiftly embarked upon by deploying our well tested processes to engage with each and everyone concerned, both within our internal and connected relationships.
“In the meantime, safeguarding the rights, dignity, creative capacity and sense of esteem of every child under our care, remain irrevocably entrenched at the core of our corporate ethos, even as we always keep our doors open to embrace constructive feedback from concerned public and especially our stakeholders.”
Fadeyi added that the outcome of the investigation will be made public.
“We will communicate further with the public, once we have satisfactorily ascertained the true position of things,” it added.
“Permit us to express our profound gratitude to the media and all our stakeholders, for not just taking interest in this matter but for also seeking to establish balanced perspectives.”
