Dowen College Expels Bully From School 4 Months After Sylvester Oromoni’s Death
About four months following the tragic death of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, has expelled a bully from the school.
The student, who was bullied, has also been withdrawn from the school by his parents.
The principal of the college, Mrs Adebisi Layiwola, made this disclosure yesterday under cross-examination by Lagos lawyer Femi Falana (SAN) before the coroner, Magistrate Mikhail Kadiri.
Mrs Layiwola told the coroner, set up to unravel the cause of death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, that a condolence letter was sent to the deceased’s family through an email and WhatsApp.
She said: “The school sent a letter of condolence to the family via a normal way of delivery. It was sent by email and WhatsApp but I can’t say which email now and I also called the father immediately it happened.”
Mrs Layiwola, who said she got to know about the deceased sickness eight days later, claimed that she called the deceased’s mother immediately she heard of his death.
The Coroner, Magistrate Mikhail Kadiri, adjourned proceedings till March 7.
