It will be recalled that 12-year-old, Sylvester Oromoni died in a controversial circumstance that is yet to be unraveled.

In a statement released today, November 30, 2022, Mr. Oromoni said that it makes it exactly one year since his son died but has not been buried since as the body is still at the mortuary.

In his words:

“Today, November 30, 2022 makes it a year since the demise of my son and the body is still in the morgue, yet to be buried. This one-year memorial being held today is to tell Nigerians and the entire world about the current position of the inquest and the antics of Dowen College.

I am equally aware that some civil society organisations and NGOs in Abuja and Lagos are equally observing the one-year memorial today to mark his one-year untimely demise.

May the soul of Sylvester Oromoni (Jnr.) and all departed souls rest in perfect peace. Amen.

At this point, I wish to call on the Honourable Coroner to please do the needful by urgently bringing the inquest to an end as Nigerians and the entire world are waiting for the dispensation of justice in this case as justice delayed, is justice denied.

This struggle is not only about my late son, but my own way of preventing the future occurrence of this tragic incident.

In the same vein, we equally urge the Lagos State Government, as a matter of urgency to charge Dowen College and all the staff who had earlier been recommended for prosecution in the DPP Advice of 30th day of December, 2021 to court.

Already, Dowen College has since the commencement of this Coroner put a lot of things in order in the school premises which were not available at the material time.

You may wish to know that the installation of CCTV cameras and a football pitch have been provided as against the former concrete basketball court which was being used.

I must state categorically that if this inquest is not concluded before the end of this year, I shall be compelled to withdraw from it in order to take a different legal step to seek justice.”
