The family of Mr Anthony Chikaodili Eze and the management of Redeemers Nursery and Primary, Dominion Sanctuary, Acme Road, Ikeja are poised for serious battle over the death of five years old Chidera Eze on Monday, 16 May, 2022.
The young Chidera reportedly drowned at the swimming pool of Ivory Health and Wellness Club, Ogundana Street, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja.
The Redeemers Nursery and Primary is owned by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG, Dominion Sanctuary, Acme Road, Ikeja.
The distraught father dropped his child in school on Monday, 16 May, 2022, only for him to be called hours later to come and pick his corpse.
He was convinced that the school caregivers were negligent in their duties which led to his son’s death as his lifeless body was left in the pool for more than 30 minutes without notice.
While grieving over the death of his son in a most cruel way, Mr Anthony Eze narrated how Redeem Christian Church of God, owners of Redeemers Nursery and Primary School Dominion Sanctuary have been trying to use every means possible to cover up the story incident.
“I dropped my children: Chidera Andre Eze and his younger brother, at their school, Redeemers Nursery and Primary School Dominion Sanctuary ACME Road, Ọgba, Ikeja. At about 10:52 I received a call from the Head Teacher, Mrs. Adeola Oladipo, that my son Chidera had an accident and was rushed to Ikeja Medical Center Off Allen Avenue. I got to the hospital only to meet my son’s lifeless body. I asked what happened but no one was forthcoming. The doctor said he was brought in dead. I was confused; I called my sister who later joined me. We were still trying to figure out what happened amidst tears and wailing when my wife arrived. I was later told that the same Head Teacher called her. It was a beehive of confusion,” the distraught father narrated.
While the body of Chidera Andre Eze has been deposited in the morgue of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) and Mr Anthony Chikaodili Eze and his family are now seeking for justice for the death of their son, and that all those responsible for this to be brought to book.
When contacted, the authorities of Redeemers Nursery and Primary School Dominion Sanctuary for their own side of the story, one Mrs Owoyemi, believed to be a member of the management team of the school, picked up and dropped the call the moment she heard journalist and subsequently refused picking further calls.
