Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has mourned late Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni, in a very touching way on his 12th birthday.
Sylvester was reportedly a victim of bullying at the hands of seniors at his school and he died just a few days to his birthday as a result of the torture meted out on him.
The young boy would have clocked 12 on December 4, 2021, and Tonto Dikeh decided to honour his memory in a very emotional way.
The actress had a bouquet of flowers and a teddy bear taken to Dowen College school gate on the late Sylvester’s birthday.
The gifts were also accompanied with a personal note from Tonto. The actress referred to the late Sylvester as a Captain after his aggrieved father revealed that he had wanted to be a pilot in future.
Tonto’s note reads: “Happy birthday Captain Sylvester. Rest in Peace Champ! You are celebrated.”
