The management of Chrisland Schools has said that it is currently investigating what actually happened between a teacher and Purity, a pupil of the school who is the daughter of an actress, Mercy Johnson Okogie, at one of the branch of the school in VGC.
It was alleged that one of the teachers had constantly bullied Purity and even told her to her face that she doesn’t like her mother.

The Nollywood star had taken to her Instagram page to call out the teacher in Purity’s school saying that she doesn’t care if anyone doesn’t like her, but passing the hatred to her child is unacceptable.
