What caused delay in Sylvester Oromoni's funeral

Recalling the incident, Sylvester passed away in November 2021 after he was allegedly bullied by his seniors at the Lagos school. However, the school authorities refuted these claims and stated that the boy suffered injuries while playing football with his classmates.

Subsequently, a legal battle ensued between the deceased's parents and the school management, with the parents claiming that their son had no health problems before the tragic incident.

In 2021, Sylvester Oromoni Sr., his father, insisted that his son would not be buried until justice was served.

An autopsy conducted in January 2022 found that the 12-year-old Dowen student died of “acute lung injury due to chemical intoxication on a background of blunt force violence.”

The Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in Lagos released a second report concluding that his death was a natural phenomenon, sparking disagreements with the family.
