Dowen College Parents to Hold Candlelight Procession

The Dowen College parents forum has announced that they will hold a candlelight procession in honour of the late Sylvester Oromoni (Jnr).

The Parents who expressed their grieve and sadness over the unfortunate incident have fixed Wednesday 8th December 2021 for a candlelight procession while praying for strength for the deceased’s family.

The statement ‘Sylvester Oromoni’s Death’ admonishes parents and other stakeholders to cooperate with the Police to help the investigation.

The statement read, “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 closure for the family, but this will also serve as a deterrent to others in all schools in Nigeria.”

They added that “justice for Sylvester is justice for all,” and they will work with the school’s management to ensure all measures are put in place to avoid the future occurrence of bullying.

Dowen College Parents Fix Date to Remember Sylvester

The candlelight procession would hold by 6 pm on Wednesday at the Dowen College facility at 18 Adebayo Doherty Rd, Lekki, Lagos.

Dowen College parents added that the ‘lighting of candle’ is a tribute to the deceased to show that his memory lives on and shines bright.

“We pray that the Almighty God shall comfort the Oromoni’s family during this trying period,” they concluded.

After refusing to join their cult group, fellow students allegedly attacked 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni (Jnr).

However, the school debunked the information, stating that he got injured during a football match.

The incident has caused many reactions from Nigerians as they seek #JusticeForSylvester.

The Lagos state government has since closed the school facility indefinitely, pending Police investigations.

However, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has disclosed that three of the five suspected students is in their custody as the other two are still at large.

The bereaved parents have hired a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Femi Falana to help get justice for their son.
