Nigerian police have confirmed the arrest of five students of Dowen college, including the school principal and housemasters over their involvement in the death of Sylvester Oronomi, a 12-year old student of the school who was allegedly beaten to death by bullies.
The three house masters arrested were on duty on the day the incident happened and have been taken into police custody.
