The Lagos Police Command says it has begun an investigation into the death of Miss Whitney Adeniran, a 12-year-old student of Chrisland Schools, Ikeja, Lagos.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) confirmed this to newsmen on Monday.
Hundeyin said the police division in Agege Pen Cinema was handling the preliminary investigation after the incident.
He said that the Homicide Section of the State Central Investigation Department, Panti, would take over the case on Monday for discreet investigation.
Whitney Adeniran reportedly died during a sporting event at Agege Stadium on Thursday.
The deceased’s parents have accused the school of negligence as they continue to wonder what happened to their daughter.
The family claimed that the school made no provision for emergency response at the event and that their daughter was not given first aid at the scene.
Despite the doctor’s allusion to a cardiac arrest, the girl’s mother stated unequivocally that her daughter had no pre-existing heart condition.
