The Lagos State Police Command has warned youths against further planned protests at Dowen College in the Lekki area of the state as they insisted that the investigation was transparent.
The caution by the police follows an earlier protest by some people who had occupied the front of the school on Thursday to demonstrate against the planned reopening of the school, saying the school must remain shut until justice is served on the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni (Junior), a student of the school who died in controversial circumstances in November 2021.
This was made known on Friday by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, at a press conference while giving an update on the investigation into the cause of the death of the late Sylvester Oromoni. Odumosu said there was no evidence to establish that Oromoni was forced to join a cult or bullied to death, hence the release of the suspects earlier arrested by the police.
What the Lagos State Commissioner of Police is saying
Odumosu said, “At the end of diligent investigation carried out so far, there is no evidence to establish a case of torture, bullying and forceful application of poisonous substance against the suspects. All the suspects denied the allegations of torture, bullying and administering of poisonous substance to the deceased. Allegation that the deceased was being forced to join a cult group was also not established as other students interviewed denied this.
“In spite of the transparent investigation carried out by the police and the non-establishment of prima facie case against the suspects, some members of the Ijaw Youths Council, Lagos led by one Comrade Henry Oyobolo protested in front of Dowen College for over two hours on 6th January, 2022. The protesters including masquerades carried placards and were drumming, thereby causing panic and apprehension.
