His son, Sylvester Oromoni (Jnr) died after some senior students at the Dowen College, Lagos, allegedly tortured him owing to his refusal to join a cult group.

Speaking with The PUNCH on how the family is coping after the death of their son and their demands, Sylvester Oromoni (Snr) said, “I want justice. They should invite those boys. They should invite the school authorities. The government should question them and take action.”

The distressed dad had also said that no matter how long it takes, the family would keep the young boy’s body until all those connected to his death are served justice.

On how his wife was dealing with the trauma, he said, “She can hear you but she is almost crying. All of us couldn’t sleep. We had to take sleeping pills before we could sleep last night. It has been a really tough time for the family. That boy was our star and light, such a lovely young boy. When I look at the picture I took with him just two months ago when my daughter graduated, it breaks me.”
