The family of Sylvester Oromoni has hired human rights activist, Femi Falana to file a case against Dowen College over the mysterious death of their child.

Oromoni was allegedly bullied to death by some students of Dowen College for refusing to join cult, but the school said the 12-year-old boy died after sustaining injury while playing football.

But Falana has written to the office of Lagos State’s Chief Coroner, demanding an inquest to be conducted to unravel what led to the boy’s death.

The letter was signed by one of the lawyers in Falana’s chamber, Taiwo Olawale.

He said the family of Oromoni had briefed him of the mysterious demise of their son and suspected that he died because of the injuries he sustained after being maltreated by some senior students.

Falana said in the letter that given the needless death of Sylvester Oromoni, his chamber was compelled to request the Chief Coroner to use his office to cause a coroner’s inquest to be conducted into the cause of death of this young and promising boy.

He said the Chief Coroner, after conducting the inquest should make appropriate recommendations pursuant to Section 15 of the Lagos State Coroner’s Law 2007 that stated that an inquest shall hold whenever a coroner was informed that the death of a deceased person within his coroner district was as a result of a death in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation.

Falana prayed the Chief Coroner to conduct an inquest into the circumstance surrounding this tragic death and that he was confident that his lordship would accede to the request with utmost urgency
