Lagos Shuts Redeemer’s School After Five-Year-Old Pupil Drowns During Swimming Lessons



Redeemers Nursery and Primary School in Ogba, Ikeja, has been closed by the Lagos State Government after five-year-old student Chidera Eze passed away on the school grounds.

In May 2022, Chidera perished while participating in a swimming class sponsored by the school in the state’s Ikeja district. According to reports, Chidera was playing with his friends at the pool’s edge when he fell in and drowned.

The school will remain closed while an administrative investigation into its operations is conducted, according to a statement made by the state’s commissioner for education, Folasade Adefisayo, because it has been determined the institution has not finished registering.
