The family of late 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni, the DOWEN College student who tragically died after being allegedly tortured by his school mates, has hired the firm of human rights lawyer and activist, Femi Falana, to prosecute the case against the institution over the unfortunate death of their son.
The tragic situation of the bully by the students of Dowen college has taken over the internet and drastically called for attention.
Late Sylvester had his birthday celebrated even while his parents mourn over his death,with presentation of gifts and other fun activities.
In the letter dated December 6, 2021 and signed by Taiwo Olawale, the lawyers have written to the office of Lagos State’s chief coroner requesting an inquest into the circumstances leading to the death of his client’s child.
The letter in part reads
“Given the needless death of Sylvester Oromoni, we are compelled to request you to use your good offices to cause a coroner’s inquest to be conducted into the cause of death of this young and promising boy and make appropriate recommendations pursuant to Section 15 of the Lagos State Coroner’s Law 2007 that states that an inquest shall hold whenever a coroner is informed that the death of a deceased person within his coroner district is as a result of a death in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation.
