The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu commiserates with the family of the slain Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni.
This comes amidst the series of approaches taken to get justice for the late 12-year-old student who was allegedly beaten to death by his peers.
According to Sanwo-Olu in a statement, a comprehensive investigation has been initiated to get justice for the Oromoni family.
“I commiserate deeply with the family of late Sylvester (Jnr) Oromoni, the 12-year old pupil of Dowen College, Lagos.
As a parent, I share the grief Sylvester’s demise has brought upon his parents and the entire household. The incident is not only sad, but disturbing and heartbreaking.
Consequently, I have ordered a comprehensive investigation into the matter. But while that is going on, I would like to give Sylvester’s parents and the entire citizenry of Lagos, the assurance of my full support at this trying time.
I share their pains and sense of loss. Indeed, words are inadequate to describe my feelings, but I pray that God Almighty will soothe their pains, and grant Sylvester Jnr eternal rest. Amen,” the statement reads.
