Redeemers school suspends activities after five-year-old pupil drowns during swimming lesson
Redeemers Nursery and Primary School in Ogba, Lagos state, has suspended activities after Chidera Eze, its five-year-old pupil, reportedly drowned during a swimming session.
The pupil was said to have drowned during a swimming lesson organised by the school at the Ivory Health Club in the Ikeja axis of the state.
The deceased and his colleagues were said to have been playing close to the pool during the training when he suddenly slipped into it.
When newsmen visited the school on Thursday, no student was seen within the premises while suspicion enveloped the atmosphere.
One of the security men at the gate said the school has been closed since Monday when the incident happened.
He, however, denied the reporter access to the school premises as well as his request for contact of the management.
“Since the incident happened on Monday, the school has suspended all activities. As you (addressing the reporter) can see nobody is around. Everything is closed,” he said.
“You can come around by next week Thursday. The matter should have been resolved by then.”
