The family of Sylvester Oromoni Junior, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College in Lagos State, has released a video showing the last moments of their son who was beaten to death by his colleagues for refusing to join a cult group in the school.
KanyiDaily recalls that a cousin of the deceased, Perrison Onomoni, who broke the news on his Twitter handle, 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 insisted that preliminary investigation conducted by the school authorities revealed that there was no fighting, bullying or any form of attack on Sylvester.
The school claimed that one of the hostel parents reported that the boy was injured while playing football, and a resident registered nurse immediately administered first aid on him and later called the student’s mother to inform her of the situation.
Subsequently, the student complained of having pains in his hip and was attended to again, this time by a doctor and a nurse, and thereafter the resident doctor called his mother requesting that she come for him so that he could get further medical attention.
The school further said it had carried out a preliminary investigation before the boy’s death and confirmed that there was no case of bullying as no part of his body was broken or injured, adding that it has policies that are strongly anti-cultism.

However, the deceased’s cousin, Perrison Onomoni, who earlier broke the news on his Twitter handle, has now shared a video that captures the last moments of Sylvester before he finally gave up the ghost on Tuesday.
In the video, the 12-year-old boy could be seen writhing in pain while bleeding from his mouth, his teeth seems broken with some sort of candida Albicans appearing on the tip of his lips.
Parrison said the boy kept complaining about his throat and stomach, adding that he was given something to drink by the five students responsible for his death over his refusal to join their cult group.
@perrisonoromoni tweeted, “This was the state of Sylvester junior before he died. He couldn’t raise a leg or an arm.
“Will a boy in this state lie about what happened to him???? Dowen College should tell us what happened to my cousin. He kept complaining about his throat and stomach. Said he was given something to drink. God help us.”
