Sylvester Oromoni: 3 Dowen College students taken to SCID


Three students accused of having a hand in the death of Sylvester Oromoni, a student of Dowen College, Lekki Lagos were on Monday invited by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Maroko Police Station and later taken to the SCID for questioning over the 12-year-old’s death.

The students, who were interrogated at the SCID, it was gathered, were accompanied to the police station by their parents and lawyers.

The news of Sylvester’s death went viral last Wednesday following a social media post by his cousin, Perry Oromoni, who alleged that some senior pupils of the college beat him up in his hostel for refusing to join a cult.

But the school denied the claim, stating that the boy complained of pain in his legs and hip following an injury he sustained while playing football.

The state government subsequently ordered the indefinite closure of the school pending the outcome of an investigation into the matter.

On his part, the Lagos Commissioner of Police, Hakeen Odumosu, assured the family that the outcome of the investigations would be made public.

Meanwhile, a group led by Olumuyiwa Alani Bankole will be holding a peaceful walk on 10th December at 10 am at the Bar Centre, Ikeja to demand justice for the late Sylvester.

  1. I hope dowen college is shut from existence going forward. That college is no school, it should be seen as a secret cult if needed t him w can a school that huge and full Boarding no t have a CCTV while small schools has 360 CCTV. I pray Sylvester gets justice and may his soul rest in peace. May God console his family and loved ones. THIS IS DISHEARTENING
