President Muhammadu Buhari Wednesday said anyone found guilty in the death of Sylvester Oromoni will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
Oromoni was a student of Dowen College, Lekki in Lagos before his death. His parents said he died after being bullied by his senior schoolmates in the school dormitory.
The school, however, claimed Oromoni sustained injuries while playing football.
“The President assures that it [Oromoni’s death] must act as a trigger leading to a permanent solution to this recurring problem,” Buhari’s special assistant on media and publicity Garba Shehu said in a statement.
“This incident will be thoroughly investigated and the appropriate punishment meted out to all those who are culpable.”
Lagos State police commissioner Hakeem Odumosu said on Tuesday that key suspects in the case have been arrested. He, however, did not disclose the names of those arrested.
Before his death, Oromoni had named five students who he claimed attacked him in the dormitory, inflicting on him multiple internal injuries.
The late student’s father earlier said that his child was beaten and fed a liquid chemical which led to his death.
State government has since shut down the school while the police continue investigation into the matter.
