Sylvester Oromoni: Police interrogate more Dowen college students over Sylvester Oromoni’s death.


Investigation concerning the death of a student of Dowen College, Sylvester Oromoni, who was allegedly beaten up by senior students is currently ongoing as the Lagos State Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Bureau (SCCIIB) invited four more students of Dowen college for questioning on Wednesday, December 7th.

Reports say that police obtained an order given by the court to detain the students who were arrested until when investigations concerning late Sylvester’s death is concluded.

The four arrested suspects were taken to the command headquarters in Ikeja for interrogation.

According to reports by Legit.ng, the suspects were interrogated by Lagos State commissioner of police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, they were later taken to Court 1, Yaba, where the court order to keep them detained was granted.


According to sources close to the police, all the suspects who were arrested all made similar statements denying their involvement in the death of Sylvester Oromoni.

A source said;

“It was as if they were all lectured to make the same statement over the unfortunate incident.
“This is because of the glaring similarity in their choice of words and denial which they stated in their statement. Infact, sources said that they were saying that the victim fell sick and the school authorities called the parents in Warri after which they sent one of their cousins to pick him in school.”

“Then, the cousin was said to have taken Sylvester to Ibadan only to call the school authorities a few days later to claim that his condition was deteriorating and was taking him to Warri where the parents reside. This, sources stated, fuelled claims by the suspects in their statements to the police that the victim may have died of an unknown sickness.”
