Chrisland Sex Video: Sexualising Children, Screaming Blue Murder Over Their Blue Films

By  Uri Ngozichukwuka

I won’t rest easy on this Chrisland Schools scandal. I haven’t slept well for days. What does this portend for us as a society? As parents? As school owners? As educators? As adults? I can’t seem to move past it.
Our timelines have been flooded with more lewd unimaginable sex videos and pictures of children in open sex games moves or dance cheered on by adults.

Preschoolers ages 3&4 grinding themselves together at the hips to cheering adults.

It’s not news that child pornography has crept into our space a long time ago. Most of us didn’t know and most wished it away.

Child pornography is a billion dollar clandestine business in the world and in so many countries. The highest country is Netherlands at 52 % followed by United States of America at 44%. France Slovakia Canada all get a single-digit percentage each.

It’s reported that a third of the world’s child sexualised images is flagged off by India followed by Indonesia and Malaysia. According to reports, “India reported maximum number of online child sexual abuse imagery (CSAI) cases, followed by Thailand, shows the data by US-based National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). NCMEC is the largest clearing house for the CSAI content shared on online platforms.

According to the report, India accounts for 3.88 million such cases filed between 1998 and 2017. This is despite the fact that India is estimated to have merely 11.9 per 1,000 internet users — which is way less than Iraq and Thailand.

Child pornography or sex video is a crime in most countries and various governments have put some measures to curb this epidemic no doubt. Jail terms vary from country to country. The authorities find it very hard to trace the perpetrators. Children are reported missing daily in so many countries. Most end up in child pornography dark market.

Sadly, recent reports from WASHINGTON, D.C. – “A new study of child pornography laws in 184 Interpol member countries around the world has produced alarming results: more than half of these countries (95) have no laws addressing child pornography and in many other countries, the existing laws are inadequate.

“Currently, the laws around the world are alarmingly insufficient to fight this epidemic,” said Baron Daniel Cardon de Lecture, Chairman of the Board of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC). “This is simply not acceptable. It is time for the leaders of every country to act. Our commitment is to work with them to bring about real change and eradicate this terrible problem”

How can Nigeria survive this epidemic if it gets full blown? We are already a very ready market for all types of vices, and child pornography is waiting in the wings for our 13.5 million out-of-school children burning issue we haven’t yet addressed. God help!

The economic grind that is forcing parents to send toddlers to the streets to beg is not abating. My visit to a state in the North East region of our country confirmed a racket where children are being sold for N5000 only out of hunger.

For this young girl whose escapades in the sex video has brought this to light, it’s a lot to take in. The portals this sex video has opened can only be closed by an intentional and a bracing up of the society. ADULTS. Government. Communities. Concerned Nigerians. Responsible parenting. Prayers and intercessions.

From Monday the news broke, the sex video has got over a million downloads and it’s still going on. Her account has also been hacked and impostors are posting as if she’s still the one.

Information is key and the tragedy of this whole saga is that 99% of adults who have boasted online to have watched the 10-year-old’s sex video did not realise that it was child pornography and it’s actually a crime. A crime? Where? In this Nigeria? Where lawlessness holds sway? My heart bleeds.

Right now, the civil society should be pushing for this to be part of the issues that should be topping the agenda for our legislators. I am still waiting for the group that will take this up and go the legal route with well-coordinated and properly articulated key points and agenda to forward to the Senate on child protection. Or there’s no committee on that? There must be.

Child pornography and sex videos should be banned and stringent jail terms applied. We must join the countries topping the list in any way, either as producing nation or consuming nation as the case of India and Netherlands.

This is a society that has failed their children. It’s sad that Nigeria as a country fails on so many grounds. Failed governance. Failed infrastructure. Failed education system. Failed medical systems. Failed power or electricity. These failures are so proud and bold and seem to have free reign over our lives that we have now failed the children. I am leaving off bad parenting out of it for now because one can only give what they have.

Has it occurred to anyone that the children below 15 years today probably have parents in their 30s and 40s. We don’t need to stretch history too far to remember that our societal decay accelerated from mid 1970s till date. Values dropped. Money began speaking. Corruption grew wings and fangs and claws. Sense of decorum took flight. We grew fast as a nation without development. We didn’t care much about the young people who are today’s parents of children who have sex videos and group sex. Children who would do group drugs and post nude pictures. Worst still, we did not envisage the 4th Industrial revolution – Disruption, Internet, Digital world. What a mix! Valueless society plus an unbridled world of destructive gastrointestinal information.

I still can’t for the life of me understand why youths and adults, even children, are so taken in by BIG BROTHER. The originators created it as a social experiment. Observing humans in an enclosed environment for 90 days. Watch and observe their interactions and survival strategies. Eliminate them one after the other and give tons of cash to the last man or woman standing.

Till date, I am still in the dark over the criteria for selecting the winner. We’ve seen all kinds of sex scandals that rock the show every season and it appears each season tries to register more raunchiness than the previous one. Adults have sex openly and it’s treated with levity.

Some get all utopic about it. It’s “make believe” they say.

The music videos and music channels are not letting up in the race to the raunchiest. The cartoons are getting sexier too. Time was when media shaped the society positively. There’s no denying the power of media. It’s been referred to as the “third parent” and it certainly is. However, with today’s absent parenting and digitalised children, the media might actually have gone from third parent to an unenviable position as the first parent, or in some cases the only parent. How tragic!

In these times, we have a rising case of unsupervised parenting and irresponsible parenting. Both are not the same. The former is absent without recourse or remorse . The second is present with toxic Content not recommended for children

Time was when values and decorum held sway and Content was entertaining fun with no sex heavy in your face . Somehow we now live in a society that has come to accept sex and more sex as a staple for content. Sex sells my producers and colleagues tell me. Well if sex sells what happened to age appropriateness? We have thrown all that out in the window and are selling sex to toddlers. Are we so depraved and wanting so much to increase our bank balances that we degrade humanity? ( Billions from big brother on my mind) Are we so retarded and insecure that we have to follow the crowd to be fly?

This Chrisland school scandal is not letting me sleep well. Were they actually just five teachers sent with 70 children? 70 “ajebutter” kids? We have become a society that worships money and who has it.

In recent times, we’ve stopped asking, “how did he or she make the money?” Once I watched a video where the young man was asking ” why are you asking me how I made my money when I was suffering did you ask me how I was suffering?’’ It went viral. With hundreds of thousands of likes. Until Hush puppi was busted, his fans were growing by the numbers. The decadent display of cash and girls in skimpy swim wears at a young man’s mother’s burial drew a lot of attention. There were more voices cheering than the ones that called it what it was.

Everything goes. Expensive and top-grade schools with good pedigree are easily affordable to the highest bidder who most probably made money through dubious means. Money in the hands of anyone without a pedigree of hardwork, truth, honesty and justice is a ” LETHAL WEAPON.’’ Parents weaponized with money raising children. Disaster!

I am fortunate to be friends with great early child educators who transited from being school teachers to school owners and when they recount their experiences you weep for what has become of parenting today. They recall with nostalgia how teachers were respected in those days.

One told me she asked a distracted pupil to come to school with the father and she didn’t even know he was a then minister of petroleum. The man turned up and sat quietly at the reception and came in when he was asked in and apologised for his absence from his son’s total education. She said she almost fell off the seat when he walked in alone. No aides or the usual paraphernalia they surround themselves with now. They recall how parents will come and tell them to kindly get more creative in disciplining their children. However, those days are far gone. Today, parents come shouting, beating and fighting teachers if their children are disciplined. This is where I pick my tissue box.

Today’s parenting calls for concern. Deep reflection. It’s not all tales of woe though; there are few homes that held values and standards high and still do. They seem to be far in-between. We need them speaking up and standing up for what is right. This is when corporate organisations should look beyond the bank numbers and build the society by backing content that build and add value to the society.

We need deep conversations. Deep reflection. Then, maybe (just maybe) we can retrace our steps to where we missed it. As adults, we all need personal reappraisal. Where do we draw the Parent Guidance (PG) line? If it’s okay for me as an adult, is this okay for my child?

That child I want to molest for porn what if that’s my child? Though reports abound where parents sexually abuse their own children, what’s most important is to rescue our children from digital information overload as a matter of urgency. Let’s all rise in unison and call for legislation against child pornography. Let’s also extend it to parents whose minors engage in online suggestive sexual videos.

A child has over 500 dance videos and 24,000 followers and you don’t know? . Schools where sex offenders abound? A school where the school administrator is serving a life sentence for molesting toddlers? These things should not be swept under the carpet.

We can’t wait for politicians or government to do this for us. We all need to rise and salvage what we have left of our society through responsible parenting. Child protection policies. From home to school and the community. Intentional monitoring of digital content our children are exposed to. More open communication with our children. Sex education. We need to protect them.

Let’s do our bit and stop screaming blue murder when toddlers do blue films.
