“You Collect Three Million For School Fees And You Cannot Mount CCTV Cameras” – Nigerian Mum blasts Dowen College ex Counselor After He Said Boarding Students Are Not Well Monitored


A mother of a Dowen College student recently confronts down college ex counselor after she said boarding students are not properly watched after.

The confrontation took place during a Zoom meeting set up by concerned parents of the school’s students and the Educators network in account of the death of a 12year old student of the school, Sylvester Oromoni.

A few days back that Sylvester Oromoni gave up a ghost on Tuesday, November 30th after reportedly being molested by his fellow students in the sleeping room.

A former counselor who showed up at the conversation in the parents Zoom meeting said the school students are still being left unmonitored in the hostel.

In his words,

“I worked at Dowen college for several years. One of the problems we have with most of the boarding houses today is that the structures are not purpose-built for boarding houses. I might be referring to Dowen college.

In a situation where you have several floors and no floor has a house parent monitoring the students. By the time you hear a sound and you go upstairs, the seniors have changed the story. That’s exactly what happened at Dowen college.

From the first day they moved most of the students from a hired building into a permanent hostel, it was a time bomb waiting. Eventually, I resigned because of that situation. The children are not well monitored”

Nevertheless, as he proceed speaking, a saddened mother interrupted him and condemned him for simply speaking after the death of a student.

She also declared that her child passed through almost thesame treatment that Sylvester also passed through and nearly died.

“I am sorry to say. Why are you saying it now that Sylvester has died? Why did you not say it since? Why are you saying it now? My child was bullied and almost died in Dowen college. Why did you not speak out then? A child has died now. You saw these things for nine years and then you left the school.

My son is a victim. They did exactly what they did to that boy. They put off the light. They beat him. They carried a box on his head.” she said amidst tears

Additionally to it, the saddened mother said,

“The thing that they did to Sylvester Oromoni, they did it to my son. They entered the room. They put off the light. Seven of them who brought my son to kneel down. They put a suitcase on his head. They were dancing around him like an occultic gathering. They were beating him at the same time. They took out a phone, They recorded it. That video is online somewhere. And you are telling me that you left Dowen because of the bullying. Why did you not say it so that people would not make the mistake of taking our children…I have been crying since Thursday when I saw this video. I have not eaten. I have not drunk. I have not slept. A child has died. That boy was 11 years. Same age as my son. It could have been my son that died. I was lucky. Sylvester wasn’t lucky.

You are saying this now having observed this thing for nine years. What basis are you talking about? On what grounds are you talking? They give security man in Dowen college ATM to go and withdraw N50, 000 and they begin to spend the money. Children would spend money. The children call security men by their names.”
She also added that the boys’ sleeping room in Dowen College was lacking of discipline, but the women’s sleeping room was safer because of a "lady named Celine"

In Her words,


“The only grace the girl’s hostel has is because of a lady called Celine. She is the woman in the girl’s hostel. You cannot bully in a girl’s hostel in Dowen college. But you see the boy’s hostel, that third floor is the den where they commit the havoc. These children are bad. Everything Sylvester Oromoni said is the truth. They should arrest Ahmed and Valentine. These are the housekeepers.

“The principal told me that she saw my son’s video of being bullied but she did not think it was important to act because they had not posted it online. She saw it and slept on it. And you are telling me that you knew and you people allowed us to be bringing our children. You collect three million for school fees and you cannot mount CCTV cameras.”
