Two additional students have arrested and detained by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly involved in the torture of a 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni, a student of Dowen College, Lekki in Lagos State.

This brings the total number of students in Police custody to five.

Police say they have obtained a court order to detain the students for 21 days at the Juvenile centre

Earlier, three who visited the State Criminal Investigative Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba in company of their parents were detained after.

Two of the parents of the accused students had come out to say their children were not responsible for the death of Sylvester Oromoni.

The owner of Dowen College is Dr Olumide Phillips, his daughter is a singer, Lami Philips.

According to livetimesng, Olumide Philips is a former employee of Dunlop Nigeria and Gulf Oil Nigeria

According to reports in the media, Lami is one of the board members of Dowen College, the Director of Students and External Affairs.

On Twitter, @obaoriade said: “Wait! Lami Philips is the owner of the Dowen school? No wonder all these celebrities are keeping quiet. Sad!!”

@oku_youngyx said: “So Lami Philips deactivated her account and a lot of Nollywood celebrities have been silent with regards #Justiceforsylvester. Bravo!”

@BelemaNgeri said: “This Lami Philips for Dowen college, is she not the musician? She has locked her Twitter and deleted her Instagram.”

There are report that states that the school have knowledge of this.

They even tried to cover up by saying it was during a football match he got the injury.

The school management must also be held responsible for the boy death

in this Dowen's raging saga, if you ask me who are the most irresponsible of all the suspected culprits, I'll say the house/hostel masters.

They started arresting the culprits after he got on the case, all the recent arrests could have something to do with him working on the case.

I just pray this matter will not be swept under the carpet after a while, because with the little findings I made about the school, it seems many politicians and powerful men in Lagos sent and sending their children to this school including the present governor of Lagos state.
Why I said this is, because of the 2012 documentary of Dowen school I watched, shows Joke Sanwolu been one of the parent interviewed in the school. and also, Fomer president Ebele Jonathan once invited some of the student of Dowen with some other school to the Aso Rock. I believe this school will have a back-up of some strong politicians in the country and might make then escape this mess, just as the case of Premiere Academy, Lugbe, Abuja.

I felt for the poor boy

These student's parents are capable of bribing the CP and even the governor to drop the case and clear their names

Okay... But we're yet to hear the arrest of the original culprits, hope it won't be like how our Nigerian police do wrong arrest of innocent citizens after a robbery incidence....
Go for the culprits and stop going about in circles, if you guys are scared of arresting the culprits, say it so that we can all giv up on the case because I don dey see K- Leg for this case before we know it, it will be swept under the carpet and sealed for ever...

Seeking justice in Nigeria is just like asking Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu....all you will get is "we will see what we can do, time go dey go be that....
