I Won’t Bury My Son Even If It Takes 30 Years – Slyvester Oromoni’s Dad Says


The father of late Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni has vowed never to bury his son until his son gets justice for his death.

This reaction from Slyvester Oromoni Snr came after the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumuso said that the autopsy carried out on Late Oromoni Jnr’s body in Warri and Lagos shows he died a natural death.

“Our findings at the second autopsy include marked pallor of organs, pneumonia (infection of the lungs), infections of the liver and kidneys as well as the heart. These infections emanated from the ankle infection described earlier in the report. Microscopic sections also confirmed these findings.

The findings in the oesophagus and stomach are not compatible with chemical intoxication. Death, in this case, is natural.” Odumosu said.

In an interview with Punch, Mr. Oromoni said, “The family does not have power. We only rely on God. If they insist that the school will reopen, there is no problem. If God keeps me for 20 or 30 years, I will follow up on this case.

The government will come, the government will go. I am not bothered. The soul of that boy is crying round. God is alive; He cannot be bribed.

“My son will never be buried. If it takes me 30 years to get justice, he would remain there (in the mortuary). He is my son; I won’t bury him. Nigerians should look beyond what they are saying.”
