#JusticeForSylvester: Nigerian Women organized Protest at the Front Of Dowen College (Photos)

Some disturbed Nigerian women on Wednesday morning, December 8th, invade Dowen college in Lagos, seeking for justice for the late Sylvester Oromoni jr.

It's worth recalling that Sylvester Oromoni, who died recently was a student of the school, died after he was reportedly molested and beaten by his schoolmates for refusing to join their cult.

Although investigations have commence and the Lagos State government has promised to bring the suspects to justice.

Yesterday, Lagos State Commissioner for police, Odumusu Hakeem has announced that three students of Dowen College in Lagos are currently helping the police in their investigation into the death of Sylvester Oromoni Jr.

Referring to him, three of the five suspected Dowen college students that Sylvester named before his death are currently in their detention and are helping the police in their investigations.

Just this morning, worried women dressed in whole black staged a protest in front of the locked down premises of Dowen College, requesting for justice for the Sylvester jr.

Meanwhile yesterday; Dowen College Parents Forum has finally now responded to the tragic death of a 12-year-old pupil of the school, Sylvester Oromoni jr.

The parents forum in some words agreed to by Kola-Oladejo aituaz, adeoye waheed, Ajila Oluwaseun Bolanle, and Kema Agu Kingsley surfaced on Tuesday, December 7th, showing pity for the family of the deceased and shows their condolences over the sorrowful incident which led to the death of their son.

The parents said they would work more closely with the school (management/board) to make sure that the necessary measures are taken to sustain the unfortunate incident from repeating again.

“Dowen College Parents are startled and deeply saddened by the unfortunate incident that led to the death of Sylvester Oromoni. Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased and pray that God gives them the strength to bear the irreparable loss.

As parents of Dowen college students, we are still in shock and could not come to terms with this incident and the accounts so far provided by the school,students, and the media. 

We urge the school management team and other stakeholders (students and parents directly or indirectly mentioned) to fully cooperate with the authority in the ongoing investigation.

While we would have loved to bring Sylvester back if humanly possible, unravelling the cause of Sylvester’s death and bringing whoever was responsible or might have contributed in whatever way to book,will not only bring this unfortunate incident to a closure for the family, but this will also serve as a deterrent to others in all schools in Nigeria.

We therefore say justice for Sylvester, is justice for all. On our part as parents, we will work more closely with the school (management/board), to ensure necessary measures are put in place to prevent a reoccurrence of this unfortunate incident and stamp out bulling in any form from the school.
We therefore earnestly ask for a resolution that will bring some relief to the bereaved family, other parents, students of Dowen College and the public.

These should include a change of the school management and hostel teachers, installation of CCTV cameras in all strategic places and overhauling of the school security system.

The Parents’ Forum is organising a Candle Light event. Details of which are as follow: Wednesday, December 8, 6pm; Dowen College. The lighting of candles is to pay tribute to a life ‘passed’ and keeping the light burning signifies that the memory still lives on and burns bright.” The statement reads.
