Faces of the alleged killers of late Sylvester Oromoni a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos has emerged.
Also revealed are the top management staff of the school.
Reports had emerged that Oromoni was bullied and beaten by fellow students. The supposed injuries from the beating led to his death, according to a Twitter user with the handle @perrisonoromoni, who claimed to be the boy’s cousin.
However, in a statement on Wednesday, the school denied all allegations stating that Oromoni was neither bullied nor beaten but only complained of hip pain after playing football.
Contrary to the school’s statement, the victim’s cousin rolled out photos and video evidence, which corroborates the fact that the child was bullied and beaten; an activity that led to his death.
According to the bereaved father in a live video interview with Punch news online, he and his wife transferred their deceased son to Delta State where a series of tests conducted and ”last-minute open confessions” by the late 12 year old Sylvester confirmed that he was molested and violently abused by five senior students in the school.
He mentioned the names as Joseph Benjamin, Michael Kashamu, Anslem Temile while he said he couldn’t recognise the other two because the lights in the hostel room were switched off by the boys before they started beating him up.
According the Gist lover blog, their names are: Michael windoku, Angel Temile, Favour Benjamin, Edward Brown, Agboro Emmanuel
A dying Sylvester also revealed that the boys warned other students in the room not reveal what took place threatening to kill anyone who violated their order.
The five boys further directed the fear grippen students to lie that Sylvester sustained injuries while playing football if queried by the management of the school.
