The father of Sylvester Oromoni Junior, the late student of Dowen College, has continued the quest for justice, two years after his son’s passing.
Oromoni Junior died in November 2021 after he was alleged to have been beaten by five of his colleagues.
Dowen College dismissed the claim, alleging that the boy sustained injuries playing football with his friends.
Oromoni’s father told TheCable on Thursday that the corpse of the deceased boy is still in the morgue after two years.
“As the father of the deceased, I cannot be tired or discouraged from pursuing justice as I have promised my son to get him justice even if it will take thirty years to achieve it,” the bereaved added.
“Thursday, November 30, 2023, makes it two years since the demise of my son and the body is still in the morgue, yet to be buried.”
Sylvester Oromoni Junior died on November 30, 2021.
In January 2022, an initial autopsy declared that Oromoni died of “acute lung injury due to chemical intoxication” but the result was later discredited.
The department of public prosecution (DPP) in Lagos released a second result ruling that Oromoni died naturally.
The case has been in court since 2022 and the bereaved family is vowing to pursue the matter up to the apex court.
Oromoni’s mother has said that her son had no health challenges before the Dowen incident.
