The late Sylvester Oromoni Jr. reportedly succumbed to health issues at a private hospital in Warri, Delta State, after what has been described as a series of traumatic incidents at Dowen College.

It is alleged that the 12-year-old was subjected to physical abuse, including being forcibly given a concussion to drink by five senior students.

"As the father of the deceased, I cannot be tired or discouraged from pursuing justice. I have promised my son to get him justice even if it will take thirty years to achieve it."

November 30, 2023, marks the second anniversary of Sylvester Oromoni Jr.'s passing, yet his body remains in the morgue, awaiting the resolution of the legal proceedings.

Oromoni concluded with a heartfelt prayer, "May the soul of Sylvester Oromoni Jr. and all departed souls rest in perfect peace. Amen."
