Oromoni was a student of Dowen College who died after allegedly suffering from injuries sustained after being attacked by his seniors.

In a series of tweets shared via his Twitter page on Friday, December 3, 2021, the father of four slammed those who have remained silent because of the identity of the owner of the school.

“I know some of my colleagues or Abi some celebrities will not speak up about this “dowen college” Matter because one of our colleague is the owner of the school. I have been watching y’all pages and I know she is very close to you, yes you. Say something now,” he tweeted.

“She might see our rage on your page. We are talking about a 12 year old here, what if this boy were to be your son? This madness from schools need to STOP.”


Dowen College has told its parents and students that they will continue the academic session online after the Lagos State Government ordered that the school be closed indefinitely.

The state government stated that the school will remain closed pending the outcome of the investigation into the death of Sylvester Oromoni Jr. allegedly tortured in school by other students.

The school authorities had initially asked students to stay at home for two days, saying they will resume next week for exams. This development led to an outrage as Nigerians questioned why the school is carrying on with exams when a student died due to an incident that allegedly happened in the school.

Dowen College has now sent another message to parents and students following the announcement by the Lagos State Government that the school will remain shut indefinitely.

In the mail, Dowen assured parents that they will continue online. Read the mail courtesy of LIB,
