More facts are emerging about how Sylvester Oromoni, the 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki Lagos, was allegedly beaten to death by his schoolmates.
Recall that the media have been awash with stories of how Sylvester was tortured to death by his school mates and the Lagos state government has already shut down Dowen College indefinitely pending investigations into the murder case.
Late Sylvester’s father has provided more details of what his son told him happened to him before he died. This is coming after management of the college had denied that any incident of torture ever took place in the school.
“My son told me he was tortured by senior students who also forced him to drink a substance right inside Dowen College, Lekki, hostel”,
“They entered his room, switched off the light and threatened to kill the other students who witnessed what they did to my son.”
Oromoni Jnr was 12 years old. Dowen College blamed his death on injuries suffered while playing football.
As a result of public outrage, the school announced that it would temporarily shut its doors and reopen next week as exams are scheduled to start soon.
But the Lagos State Government has ordered the school to be shut down until the education ministry and relevant authorities conclude a probe into Oromoni Jnr’s death.
Here’s what late Sylvester’s father said to contradiction the claims by the school management.
