The Lagos government has cleared all five students and staff members arrested in connection with Sylvester Oromoni’s d£ath, claiming that an autopsy ruled out murder and that no hazardous substance was discovered in his body.

The five pupils and staff members of Dowen College in Lagos who were arrested in connection with the d£ath of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni have been exonerated by the Lagos State Government.

Following legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution, Ms. Adetutu Oshinusi, addressed to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, and the trial magistrate, Magistrate Olatunbosun Adeola, they were all exonerated, including the school.
His d£ath was attributed to “Septicaemia, Lobar Pneumonia with Acute Pyelonephritis, Pyomyositis of the right ankle, and Acute Bacteria Pneumonia due to severe Sepsis,” according to the legal opinion.
They also stated that, contrary to his family’s claims, the toxicology analysis of Sylvester’s post mortem samples revealed no harmful or poisonous chemical in his body.According to the DPP’s legal advice, there is no case of murder, involuntary manslaughter, or malicious administering of poison with intent to harm against the five students, Favour Benjamin (16), Micheal Kashamu (15), Edward Begue (16), Ansel Temile (14) and Kenneth Inyang (14) based on these findings (15).

The students were also exonerated of charges of cult membership due to a lack of evidence to support the charge.”Based on the available data in the duplicate case file, the police investigation revealed that no secret society name, tattoo, or insignia of any criminal society was found in the possession of any of the suspects during the police inquiry.”

To assert differently would be tantamount to sniffing for a crime and a speculative conduct, both of which are illegal under the law. The legal advice said in part, “It is trite law that suspicion, no matter how grave, cannot be used as a basis for conviction.”

All charges against the school and its five employees, Celina Uduak, Valentine Igboekweze, Hammed Ayomo Bariyu, Adesanya Olusesan Olusegun, and one Adeyemi, have been dropped, and all suspects have been released from custody.In the meantime, the school remains closed.
