NBM flays death of Dowen College pupil as parents honour Oromon



NEO-Black Movement
(NBM )of Africa expressed dismay over
the circumstances surrounding the death of 12-year-old, Sylvester Oromoni,
a boarder at Dowen College,
Lagos.

The Pan-African organisation in a statement by its
spokesperson, Mr.
Oluwatosin Dixon, said: “It is
saddening to again record
the loss of yet another
promising talent to a society
devoid of justice and freedom. As a movement, we are
constantly striving towards
creating an environment
where people are made to
face the consequences of
their actions.

“By holding people accountable, we shall see a world
filled with human beings
who constantly work for the
good of all.”

MEANWHILE, the parents’ forum of Dowen College, yesterday, held candlelight procession in honour of the late student at the
school compound, 18,
Adebayo Doherty Road,
Lekki, Lagos

A statement, signed on
behalf of the parents’ forum
by Aituaz Kola-Oladejo,
Waheed Adeoye,
Oluwaseun Bolanle Ajila,
and Kingsley Kema Agu,
read: “The lighting of candles is to pay tribute to a life
‘passed’ and keeping the
light burning, signifying
that the memory still lives
on and burns bright.”

“The candlelight no doubt
shall promote reflection
and signify remembrance of
a life cut short in his infancy.
“Our hearts go out to the
family of the deceased and
pray that God gives them
the strength to bear the
irreparable loss.

“As parents of Dowen college students, we are still in
shock and could not come
to terms with this incident
and the accounts so far provided by the school, students, and the media.

“We are, however, temporarily relieved by the swiftness
with which the authority
intervened and commenced investigation
towards unraveling the
cause of Sylvester Oromoni’s
death.”
