Sylvester Oromoni’s death due to negligence of parents, doctor – Coroner

The coroner inquest sitting in Ogba Magistrate Court investigating the death of Sylvester Junior Oromoni, the 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, has ascribed his death to negligence on the part of his parents and doctor.

The coroner magistrate, Mikhail Kadiri, stated that Oromoni died as a result of failed treatment for his enlarged liver.

DAILY POST recalls that Oromoni died on November 30, 2021, as a result of bullying and an alleged poisonous substance he was forced to drink in the school.

Before his death, he reportedly mentioned that he was beaten by five senior students of Dowen College, whose names were Favour Benjamin, 16, Edward Begue, 16, Ansel Temile, 14, Kenneth Inyang and Michael Kashamu, 16, son of the late Senator Buruji Kashamu.

However, on January 5, 2022, the Lagos State Government exonerated the five students and five employees of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, who were accused of the death of Sylvester Oromoni.

Kadiri said: “Based on the foregoing, it is clear that the deceased’s health deteriorated in (doctor) PW 3’s care. PW 3 did not take proper care of the deceased. PW 3 completely abandoned the deceased for a period of more than 32 hours.

“The deceased’s death was an avoidable one but for the negligence of the parents and PW 3, they didn’t take him to the hospital until the day he died on November 30, 2021. The deceased went through avoidable and excruciating pain and was made to suffer needlessly.”
