Sylvester Oromoni Snr, the father of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, a JSS 2 student at Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos, has vowed not to bury his son until justice is served.

This comes as the deceased’s family celebrated his 12th birthday posthumously on Saturday, with a cake shaped like an airplane and a pilot uniform cut in memory of his ambition.

The news of Sylvester Jnr’s death went viral on Wednesday after his cousin, Perry Oromoni, claimed on social media that some senior students at the college beat him up in his hostel room for refusing to join a cult.

However, the school denied the claim, claiming that the boy complained of leg and hip pain as a result of an injury sustained while playing football.

The Lagos State Government had ordered that the school be closed indefinitely in order to conduct a thorough investigation.

In an interview with one of our correspondents on Saturday, Sylvester Snr stated that his son would not be buried until justice was served – regardless of how long it took.

He said, “How can he be buried? I cannot bury him until I get justice, until I get to the end of the matter. Even if it takes two or three years, we would be going on. I pray God keep us alive.”
