Junior, who was beaten to death for allegedly refusing to succumb to peer pressure to join a cult by his fellow student was reported dead by his uncle, Perrie, on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, following a trending video that revealed his condition before his death.
Disagreeing with the school, Dowen’s College, on claims that the boy sustained a football injury, Caroline stated that her son plays Rugby and has sustained many bruises, but none of it looked like what happened to the 12-year-old.
She continued further, stating that the government should shut down the school till investigations are complete.
In her words;
“I am very much interested in the out come of the situation at Dowen college.. what happened to that 12 years old boy. My son plays Rugby, he has bruised himself badly so many times.
My son never looked as bad as that boy looked before he died. The school should shut down till investigations rules them out. It is insensitive to act like nothing happened.
Why didn’t the hospital send him to ER with immediate attention?
How do you send a child to school and he comes back dead.
This country is so slow and uncaring.”
Meanwhile BBNaija Tacha also shared a video on her Instagram stories, expressed devastation over the conditions the 12-year-old was in before his death.
She also slammed the school for allegedly trying to cover up the circumstances that led to the death of Sylvester, adding that ‘playing football couldn’t have left the young boy’ in such terrible conditions.
The Reality TV Star asked the Lagos government to look into the incident and begin investigations if need be.
She further noted that issues such as this should not be swept under the carpet as incident such as this could have happened to anyone.
