Mr Sylvester Oromoni, Accuses Lagos State Government for Covering up the Death of his son, Sylvester Oromoni Jnr

Mr Sylvester Oromoni father of the 12-year-old Dowen college student that was bullied to death last year, has spoken, after the Lagos police and state government cleared the 5 Dowen collage students and house masters who were detained in connection to the murder of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr.



Mr Oromoni accused the Lagos state government, stating that there is a conspiracy among the government officials, including the police to cover up the circumstances surrounding the gruesome murder of his son.


This is coming after the government of Lagos state the Legal advice released by its Department of Public Prosecution DPP said the five students and five school officials should be released from police custody as the autopsy carried out on the remains of late Oromoni ruled out murder. The legal advice also stated that the toxicology carried out on his body found no harmful substance in his body 


Read the statement below;

My attention has been drawn to the legal advice dated the 4th day of January 2022 on the untimely and brutal death of my beloved son, Sylvester Oromoni Jnr. who died on the 30th day of November 2021.



I am appalled by the said legal advice dated the 4th day of January 2021 being circulated on social media as a copy was not obliged to us despite several requests for same.


Be that as it may, I am not surprised with the content of said legal advice because the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Mr Hakeem Odumosu who had earlier preempted the report on the 31st day of December 2021 when he said that at the instance of the Governor,


Attorney-General and Director of Public Prosecution of Lagos State, the investigation had been concluded and that those arrested in connection with the murder had no case to answer and thereby exonerated.


You could recall that on the 21st day of December 2021, a Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos presided over by Mrs Olatunbosun Adeola granted the five suspects bail even though the DPP Advice was yet to be issued.


Our findings from both the Commissioner of Police and Deputy Commissioner of Police, SCID, Panti denied being aware of the release of the five suspects.


The Commissioner of Police further maintained that they were yet to conclude their investigation, hence the issue of bail would not have arisen.
