Following the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni, a student of Dowen College, Lekki in Lagos State, three students, suspected to have been involved in the alleged torture and beating for refusing to join a cult group, yesterday, visited the State Criminal Investigative Department (SCID),  Panti, Yaba in Lagos for questioning.

Oromoni, Jnr died of complications last week as a result of injuries sustained from an attack by a group of five senior students for allegedly refusing to join a cult group in the school.

Recall that Adewale, son of the late Senator  Buruji Kashamu, alleged to be involved in the matter has denied his involvement.

It was learnt that the students were invited by the Divisional Police Officer of Maroko Police Station and later taken to the SCID for questioning over Sylvester’s death.

The students, who were interrogated at the SCID, it was gathered, were accompanied to the police station by their parents and lawyers.

  1. The Dowen incident is very unfortunate but it’s a pointer to what obtains in not less than 50% of schools nationwide. The authorities are aware of those activities but are either members themselves or scared of confronting the perpetrators for fear of their own children, as they say it.
