Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson-Okojie has joined the call for justice for Whitney Adeniran, the 12-year-old student of Chrisland International School, Opebi branch who tragically passed away during an inter-house sports event.
In a heartfelt video seen by News About Nigeria, Whitney’s mother cried out for answers, pleading with the school authorities to reveal the truth behind her daughter’s sudden death.
Mercy Johnson, touched by the mother’s sorrow, took to social media to express her sympathy and urge Chrisland School to comply with the bereaved mother’s request.
The actress stated that every concerned parent was anxiously waiting for the details of Whitney’s passing and emphasized that no parent deserves to be kept in the dark about their child’s death.
The school management has claimed that Whitney died of cardiac arrest after collapsing in public view, but the deceased’s father alleges that she died from electrocution. This has sparked a demand for a full disclosure of the events that led to Whitney’s passing.
Mercy Johnson, who is known for her passionate humanitarian efforts, has once again used her platform to bring attention to an important cause.
Her message of condolence and call for transparency is a reminder of the responsibility that institutions, especially schools, have in ensuring the safety and well-being of their students.
Whitney Adeniran’s passing is a tragic loss, and her family deserves to find closure. Mercy Johnson’s plea for the truth to be revealed serves as a reminder that the right to know is an important aspect of the healing process for bereaved families.
