The family of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni have reacted to the decision of the court to grant suspects in the murder N1 million bail.
Recall that the suspects who were involved in the alleged murder of the 12-year-old were granted a bail of 1million each on Tuesday, December 21st.
The Chief Magistrate, Olatunbosun Adeola after hearing the bail application filed by the counsel of the defendants ordered that 2 sureties be provided in like sum.
According to Daily Sun, the father of Sylvester questioned the decision of the judge to grant the suspects bail considering the fact that the 21 days the police requested for their investigation had not yet elapsed.
He said: “Yesterday I was called that those boys were granted bail by a Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos. I said, “why?” I now called the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State and he told me; I was not aware, and that they were not done with the investigation.
“I called the DCP in charge of the case who later confirmed to me that the story is true.
“But it was a surprise to me that the same judge gave them 21 days which expires on the 28 of this month when the police requested for the remand order. The court granted 21 days to keep those boys.
“And the 21 days have not expired, and the court granted them bail. I am calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Lagos State Government and the Inspector General of Police to please take note.
“Secondly, the police said they are not done with the investigation, that granting the boys bail will not help their investigation, they are getting more facts.
“And they were even planning that after the 21 days if they are not done with their investigation, they will ask for an extension. I am surprised that the court granted them bail when the date given has not elapsed.“
