JUST IN: Parents’ negligence killed Sylvester Oromoni – Coroner declares



BREAKING: Parents’ Negligence Killed Sylvester Oromoni - Coroner Declares

A Coroner’s Inquest recently concluded at the Ogba Magistrate Court, shedding light on the tragic death of 12-year-old Dowen College student Sylvester Junior Oromoni in Lekki.

The investigation revealed that the negligence of his parents and doctor played a role in his untimely demise.

According to the Coroner Magistrate, Mikhail Kadiri, Oromoni’s cause of death was attributed to unsuccessful treatment for his enlarged liver.

On November 30, 2021, Oromoni passed away. A tragic incident occurred at the school, resulting in the untimely passing of a student. It is believed that bullying played a role in this unfortunate event, along with the alleged consumption of a harmful substance.

According to reports, before his unfortunate passing, he alleged that he had been assaulted by five senior students from Dowen College. The individuals involved were identified as Favour Benjamin (16), Edward Begue (16), Ansel Temile (14), Kenneth Inyang, and Micheal Kashamu (16), who happened to be the son of the late Senator Buruji Kashamu.

In a surprising turn of events, the Lagos State Government has cleared the names of the five students and five employees of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos. These individuals were previously implicated in the tragic death of Sylvester Oromoni.

Kadiri said, “Based on the foregoing it is clear that the deceased health deteriorated in (parents) PW 3’s care.

“PW 3, did not take proper care of the deceased, PW 3, completely abandoned the deceased for a period of more than 32 hours.

“The deceased’s death was an avoidable one but for the negligence of the parents and PW 3, they didn’t take him to the hospital until the day he died on November 30, 2021.

“The deceased went through an avoidable and excruciating pain and made to suffer needlessly,” Kadiri said.
