Sylvester Oromoni: My son won’t be buried until we get justice — Father

Sylvester Snr, father of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, late student of Dowen College in Lagos, allegedly beaten and fed a liquid chemical.

The Lagos state police commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, while revealing the findings in the autopsy report conducted on Sylvester Omoroni Jnr, said it did not show that the 12-year-old student was murdered.

In a follow-up, five students and five officials of Dowen College linked to the death of the 12-year-old were exonerated by the Lagos State Government.

Speaking on the report and rumour of the school being reopened, the boy’s father said, “The family does not have power. We only rely on God. If they insist that the school will reopen, there is no problem. If God keeps me for 20 or 30 years, I will follow up on this case.

“Government will come, the government will go. I am not bothered. The soul of that boy is crying round. God is alive; He cannot be bribed.

“My son will never be buried. If it takes me 30 years to get justice, he would remain there (in the mortuary). He is my son; I won’t bury him. Nigerians should look beyond what they are saying.”

Asked if he had any doubt over the autopsy released by the state government, he retorted “Do they have any autopsy report? They don’t have any.

“The doctor that did the autopsy in Delta State was recommended by the Area Commander. He is not the family doctor.

“We don’t know him. Our lawyer applied to the Area Command to get a copy of the autopsy.”
