Dowen College: 5 Arrested Students Remanded In Juvenile Home, Those Involved Won’t Be Spared, Says Buhari

Five students of Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos, who were arrested by the Police in connection to the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni, have been remanded in a juvenile home.

Oromoni Jnr. died of complications, last week, as a result of injuries sustained from an attack by a group of five senior colleagues for allegedly refusing to join a cult group in the school.

Vanguard gathered that the students were remanded, following an order obtained from the Yaba Magistrates court by the police.

The spokesperson of Lagos State Police Command, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed the development but stated that investigation into the matter is still ongoing.

Ajisebutu said: “They have not been arraigned yet. They were only remanded in a juvenile home pending the conclusion of investigation into the matter.”

This came as President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday insisted that those involved in the dastardly act must not go unpunished.

President Buhari, who described Sylvester as one of the nation’s bright youngsters doing excellently in school, bringing joy to the family,  assured that the unfortunate incident would act as a trigger leading to a permanent solution to cultism and bullying in schools.

He, however, urged the Police to continue the ongoing investigation until they get to the root of the matter in order for the law to take its course, assuring that justice will be done, no matter who is involved.
