A friend and hostel mate of the deceased Sylvester Oromoni has revealed in detail how the 12-year-old was murdered.
Recall that Naija News earlier reported that Sylvester was heavily assaulted by some seniors in his school, Dowen College. This incident later led to his death.
However, Dowen College claimed that Sylvester injuries were gotten from a football match, maintaining that the young boy injured his hip while participating in the sport.
The Lagos State police later shut down the school so as to carry out investigation into the death of the student.
In a new development, a chat has been released online which claimed that the 12-year-old was assaulted not by five seniors but six.
A hostel mate of the deceased stated that six seniors had beaten up Sylvester. He named the ringleader of the assailants as one Favor.
The child alleged that after the assault the seniors warned them not to snitch and told them that if they were questioned on where the deceased had sustained his injuries they should claim it was during a football match.
