On April 17, 2022, a ten-year-old pupil of Chrisland was reported to have been coerced into engaging in a sexual act with some students of the school at the World School Games in Dubai while performing a truth or dare game. The sexual act was filmed and distributed across multiple social media platforms in Nigeria. The school, in a letter dated April 14, 2022, accused the minor of participating in the sexual act willingly and therefore suspended her. The minor mother in a viral video on April 18, 2022, alleged that the school was threatened to kill the pupil if she speaks out. The mother insisted that her child was raped.


The news drew public uproar and the Lagos State Government in a statement on April 18, 2022, ordered the immediate closure of the school alongside all other annexes within the state. It also promised to take up the investigation and prosecution.
