If found guilty of torturing Sylvester Oromoni, the 12 year old student of Dowen College, Lekki to death, what will happen to the affected students since they are minors and not up to 18?

They will face a trial in camera and if found guilty, they will go to juvenile prison.

They should be given same sentence as Murderers.

If you're old enough to kill someone, you should be old enough to bear the consequences.

I think that the burden of the responsibility would be on anyone acting in loco parentis (in parental position). If they did it while at home, their parents would have been the ones to hold responsible. But, now that they did it while at a boarding school, the school managers are to be held responsible.

A case in point relates to the minor involved in the recent school shooting in Michigan, USA. His parents have been arrested because he came to school from his home with the gun on the day of the shooting.

Even in Late Sylvester's case, his real parents may also share in the responsibility as many Nairalanders agree on this thread https://www.nairaland.com/6880945/opinion-why-blame-oromoni-snr

The Nigerian democratic system is largely copied from the US. This includes the legal system. So, the provisions of the law are basically the same in both countries.

As far as I am concerned, laws don't work in this country ....


If this gets to court, it will be adjourned for almost 5yrs untill the deceased parent gets broke and by then, everyone must have moved on to something new...And the matter go enter under carpet go rest...

Just like Chidinma that killed somebody, who is now a VIP in prison... Before we know it, we're already moving on...

That is where they are going to. All that Lekki comfort, fat chicken and useless movies they used to go end here. They will mix with their likes, cut grass and wash toilets for 25years. Them go get sense before them die. Thanks to Nigeria!

If you know anything different from what I said, the only mature thing to do is to say yours to counter mine, and not to try to shun me. No one knows it all, which is one of the reasons we are on a forum like this, ok? Now, say yours and let's all see if you are right or wrong. I'm bigger than to abuse you back.

They killed him because he SNITCHED on them.
They wasted him to teach other students lesson.
What did he expose that warranted his untimely death

Minors that can harbour such hate, anger murder at heart. Minors that knows what evil is. Minors that beat a kid like them to pulp. Minors that knew what they were doing that it could even result to death. You see ehn, some children are just devil themselves. Just like that girl that razed Ebeano supermarket to Ash. Days ago, a 15yr old child killed four kids and several injured and he was charged as adult.

I think it is best if their parents will be made to pay heavily (monetary) for their crime. Slam them very heavy fines.
