Starfield debunks shutdown rumour, attributes it to mischief makers
Director of Studies, Starfield School, Iju Lagos, Mr. Chris Eigbe has described reports that the college has been shut by the Lagos State government as a rumour designed by some unscrupulous individuals to harm the image of the school.
In the controversial report circulating on the social media, it was alleged that “the Lagos State government has shut down the school till September 2025 for demanding the sum of N25, 000 from parents for online learning.” The report also claimed that “some arrangements will be made in transferring the students to another school.”
But Eigbe in a chat with The Guardian on the development said the defamatory message alleged to have been written by the Lagos State government against the school was the handiwork of mischief-makers.
He said, “The school was not closed down by the state government. They are trying to despoil our good name and achievements we have recorded over the years. There is no way government will issue a directive on the suspension of the school using our letter headed paper.
“So, to our distinguished parents, please note strongly that it is fake news and handwork of those who are not wishing us well. This is part of what the Federal Government is talking about for some time. We have commenced investigation immediately and the full wrath of the law shall be used in this case,” Eigbe added.
