“Will Real Justice Be Served?” – Actor, Okon Lagos Speaks On Sylvester Oromoni’s Case


Comic actor, Imeh Bishop Umoh popularly known as Okon Lagos, has taken to social media to ask if real justice will be served in the Sylvester Oromoni case.

Recall that the 12-year-old student of Dowen College died on November 30 after he was allegedly beaten and tortured by his seniors in the hostel.

The five students Sylvester allegedly mentioned before he died and three housemasters, who were arrested in connection with his death, have all been released.

According to the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, the autopsy carried out on Sylvester’s body does not indicate that he was murdered.

Reacting to the dramatic twist and turns of the case, the comic actor in an Instagram page, questioned if justice will ever be served. He also vowed never to send his children to a boarding school except their safety is guaranteed.

“I have never boarded in a hostel in secondary school. The only time I did, I was in SS3.

With the death of Sylvester and the post death dramatic twist of events very fresh in memory, I will NO ALLOW my kids in a boarding school.

If I may, then it will be if and only if like and health security is HUGELY guaranteed. Even at that, I’m still doubtful.”
