Mr Sylvester Oromoni Sr., the father of 11-year-old Dowen college student Sylvester Oromoni Jnr., who died in controversial circumstances on November 30, 2021, has accused the Lagos state government and Nigerian police of conspiring to conceal the circumstances surrounding his son’s gruesome murder.
Oromoni stated this in response to the Lagos state government’s decision to exonerate the five students and five school officials arrested in connection with his son’s death.
According to the legal advice issued by the Lagos state government’s Department of Public Prosecution DPP, the five students and five school officials should be released from police custody because the autopsy performed on the late Oromoni’s remains ruled out murder.
In a statement released online, Mr Oromoni stated that the autopsy report and legal advice differ from the oral statement from his son before he died and his schoolmates who claimed he was tortured and given an unknown substance suspected to be poison, which led to his death.
The bereaved father stated that he has directed his lawyer, Femi Falana, to take all necessary steps to obtain justice for his son.
