Sylvester’s father expresses disappointment over release of suspects



The father of Sylvester Oromoni (Jnr.), the late 12-year-old student of Dowen College, has expressed disappointment in the Lagos State Government and the Nigerian Police Force for exonerating suspects linked to the murder of his son.

He has insisted the family will meet with their lawyer and proceed to court for justice.

He said: “This one is not new to us. I remember on the 31st of December when the Commissioner of Police was making his speech, he mentioned that at the instance of the governor, the Attorney General and the DPP, they have completed their investigation,” he said.

“They discovered that the children, housemasters had no case so he released them on bail, discharged them. He is not the court to decide this matter. What I will tell you is that the family will sit with our lawyers, we will respond appropriately and at that time, all of you will be there.

“But in the meantime, let me assure you that on December 21, the same Commissioner of Police told me that they were not done with their investigation. They also told me that they are writing to the Attorney General of the state and the Governor to return those boys back.

“Okay look at the holiday. When did they write to the Attorney General to send those boys back to complete their investigation? We did not hear anything like that. At what point did they complete their investigation?

“There was a holiday on Monday, Tuesday and all of that. Don’t worry; we are not bothered, we have heard of this before. This is just the beginning of the case.
