Justiceforsylvester: Shutting Down The School Not Enough, Kanayo Tells Lagos Gov by Foreverdope: 10:15am On Dec 04, 2021
Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, has said that Lagos state government’s decision to shut down Dowen College, where 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni Jr was allegedly tortured, is not enough.

The actor addressed Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in a video on his Instagram page which he captioned, “Dowen college must pay for this #justiceforsylvester.”[/I]

[i]The death of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, has sparked agitations from celebrities, as they demand justice for the child.
A Twitter user @perrisonoromoni, who claimed to be the boy’s cousin, broke the news about how Oromoni was beaten by fellow students for refusing to join cult.


However, in a statement on Wednesday, the school denied all allegations stating that Oromoni was neither bullied nor beaten but only complained of hip pain after playing football.

Following public outcry, Lagos State Government on Friday, ordered the indefinite closure of the school, pending the outcome of an investigation into the student’s death.

Reacting to the development, Kanayo said; “The Governor of Lagos State, our own dear Babajide Sanwo-Olu. After the EndSARS protest and report, you have another challenge on your hands.

“The case of the 12-year-old Sylvester – your son – cannot be swept under the carpet. It is not enough to shut down the school.

Do not – Your Excellency – Do not allow people to take the law into their

They allowed the school to become a breeding ground for cultism. To add insult to injury, they aided and abetted the culprits to escape the law.

The management of the school needs to be apprehended and jailed.

Unfortunately this is Nigeria. I fear that after this initial hullabaloo, this matter will be swept under the carpet & life goes on.
The culprits are most likely kids of the rich & influential in society. They will do anything & everything in their power to cover up the dastardly act & save their kids from prosecution.
I just hope & pray, beyond this SM frenzy, there would be enough evidence & willing witnesses to establish a case & effect a prosecution in court.

Social media age, a very interesting age.
So many things like this have happened years back and it was swept under the carpet...
Even heard that deeper life boy will be getting justice.

If you understand what internal injury is, you will realize that poor small boy went through excruciating pain...
What he suffered internally can't be compared to what people are seeing..

Parents should caution their children on what they watch on TV and social media,
OYINBO WEY WRITE PG 18 are not stupid..

The father is taking this with the strength of a man, I can't phantom what the mother is going through right now

Where people that know people don Dey go dobale for Baba sope at boudillion .. the matters will soon be forgotten..

Is left for the parents to be strong and fight .. for Justice .. like the woman that gave deeper life heat.
In Lagos Justice is interpreted by whom you know..
Lagos just said endsar massacre Na hallucinations.. e never happen and even pushing for peace work..

This is already under carpet or deep freezers ... more important matters will soon take over.. and rest Na story.

Pray God give the family the strength to get to the root of this ..
Lagos state government Na joke ..

Tribalism will play a huge part .. especially if the proprietor Na Yoruba .. e go hard

As a matter of fact .. school is suspended.. with no arrest.. not even management .. heard the boys have left the shores of Nigeria..
where the so called Lagos state government wan start? And who are they claiming to be investigating

This people and wayo ba?

I don't understand what we stand to gain when we choose to circumvent justice. At this time, if investigation reveals the school is aware of the full cause of the death and lied to the public and also shielded the culprits, the management should be tried for manslaughter.

Hmm


By now I am expecting the Government to have kept those people the boy mentioned in custody, not necessarily a cell or Police station but at least tell their parents not to take any of them out of the Country and to make sure they are produced when they are needed.

This Country is sick and I am very furious right now.

Useless school breeding foxes as students with sheep.

Rather than tell us that they needed time to investigate, at least as a way of covering up their shame, they chose the disgraceful path of denying event and its fall out.

This issue of cultism has somehow been allowed to fester in schools nationwide. Government has to do more in tackling this societal menace. School authorities must rise up against bullying in schools. Students who pretend to be saints at home and bullies at school must be expelled from schools.

You pay so much in school fees and other charges, not just because you want to give your children quality education, but also that you want them to have quality lives.

When children leave their homes and go to school, responsibility falls on the school to take care of the children.

In this case, aside from the criminal lawsuits arising from the crime, the school and parents of the evil children must be face with civil law suits.

the school messed up big time by not investigating what happened(assuming they were not aware of what happened) and covering up what really happened after finding out.

the boy's family should sue the living daylight out of them. am long as I'm concerned that are accomplice to the crime.

The Delta State Governor is already involved, the Ijaw National Congress is already involved.

Sorry for their losses but only lazy and selfish parents send their young kids to boarding school.



.... I said what I said



I'm 100% saddened by this event but it could have being avoided... Look@all the news of students bullying/violence all took place in boarding schools.
I know my neighbor everyday is always waiting at the gate of her kids school for the closing bells.
Immediately they hop in the car and are back home.
That's how to raise kids.
