Lagos Govt Visits Dowen College


The Lagos State government on Friday said it would unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, Sylvester Oromoni.

Oromoni was said to have died as a result of internal wounds allegedly sustained through beating by his fellow schoolmates who wanted to coerce him into joining cultism, an allegation which the school had denied.

However, the state government gave the promise to unravel the circumstance in a statement made available to newsmen by the Head of Public Affairs unit of the state’s Ministry of Education, Mr Ganiu Lawal, on Friday. According to the statement, the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, noted that the incident was shocking and the state was indeed sad about this great loss.
