Following the death of Sylvester Oromoni, a student at Dowen College in Lagos, the school’s Advisory Board has indicated that it is waiting for a directive from the Lagos State government before announcing a resume date.
Folarin Shobo, a member of Dowen Schools’ Advisory Board, stated this on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily program on Monday.
“The government is keenly interested in the case, so we are bound by the decision of the Lagos State Ministry of Education, the supervisory ministry. We are waiting for them to do the needful,” Shobo said.
Shobo further stated that the advisory board has gone over all of the incidences and records in the case and is heartbroken at their student’s death.
“We are not here to argue with the family, we are also mourning. The school, his teachers, and his classmates are all mourning the loss of a bright young man. He was a boy that was full of great potentials,” he said.
Shobo advised members of the public to focus entirely on the facts in the Oromoni case, rather than “emotions” and “sentiments,” as he put it.
He mentioned official autopsy reports submitted by medical specialists in Lagos and Warri, which the Nigerian Police Force had used as “scientific evidence” in the case.
