Dowen College Aware That Sylvester Oromoni Was Tortured By Senior Students - Eyewitness

KanyiDaily recalls that a cousin of the deceased, Perrison Onomoni, had alleged that Sylvester was beaten to death by five students over his refusal to join their cult group.

Perrison explained that the boy was battered on Friday but later died on Tuesday after a series of tests and X-rays indicated that he sustained internal injuries.

He said that after Sylvester’s death, the school management had reached out to the deceased’s father and told him that his boy sustained injuries while playing football at the school.

Reacting to the allegation, Dowen College debunked claims that Sylvester was beaten to death by suspected cultists in the school, claiming that the deceased sustained injuries while playing football.

The Management of Dowen College said it had carried out a preliminary investigation before the boy’s death and confirmed that Sylvester was neither bullied nor beaten, but only sustained injuries while playing football at the school.

However, an eyewitness has come forward to give a detailed account of how Sylvester was beaten and injured by senior students for allegedly snitching on them to the authorities.

In a message sent to one Tamara, the eyewitness who claims to be Sylvester’s dormitory mate, said his late colleague was tortured by six senior students, not five as widely reported.

The hosted mate denied the schools’ stance that Sylvester picked up an injury while playing football, noting that they didn’t play football that week so it is strange that Dowen Colege wants them to stick to that narrative.

The eyewitness said that the school management, especially the housemaster, knows exactly what happened that night so it’s strange that they were all lying.

Sylvester’s hostel mate said that when they reported the incident to the school authorities, they shouted at them, saying that they must maintain he broke his hip while playing football.

The student said they didn’t know that their colleague was dead until they were sent home on Friday after the school was shut down, adding that “I can’t sleep so I decided to speak the truth. everything Sylvester said before he died were the truth.”
