The father of late Sylvester Oromoni jnr, Mr Sylvester Oromoni, has told the management of the Dowen college to tell the truth in the controversial death of his son.
Oromono in an interview yesterday in Warri, Delta State, said the closure of the school by the Lagos State government was the first step, adding that the death of their son should bring an end to ugly situations in schools that could cause more lives of innocent children.
Recalling sweet memories of his son, he said as the last child, Sylvester was very close to him, adding that he was like a teacher to him.
His words: “My son was very close to me. He was my last child. He was also like a teacher to me. He would correct my grammar sometimes when I made mistakes in spelling or even spoken English. He was very brilliant. He would spend most times with me whenever I was at home and he was on holiday.
“I have stopped talking about the painful incident because whenever I do, it weighs me down. It is affecting me.
“I heard the school has been shut down. It is a good one and welcome development. Justice for my son is what we want. Let the school tell Nigerians the truth.
“This incident should serve a lesson to failed parents that they cannot unleash their monsters on innocent children in boarding schools. The children behind this act, no matter their ages, should face the law. If they are minors, they should be sent to rehabs before the full glare of cameras as lessons for their failed parents.”
