Dowen College Continues Classes Online Despite Sanwo-Olu Shutdown


Mr Sanwo-Olu’s administration had ordered the indefinite closure of the school following the death of a 12-year-old student, Sylvester Oromoni Junior.


The management of Dowen College, Lagos, has announced the commencement of online academic session despite Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s order to shut down all activities in the school.
Mr Sanwo-Olu’s administration had ordered the indefinite closure of the school on Friday, following the controversies surrounding the death of a 12-year-old student, Sylvester Oromoni Junior. This was to enable proper investigations are carried out.


On Saturday, an online news platform reported that the school management, in a mail sent to parents shortly after the shutdown, announced that all academic activities will be held online until further notice.


“We wish to inform you that further to our meeting at the Ministry of Education the school will be shutting down all physical activities till further notice. All learning will move online in the interest of safety and transparency,” the management said in the mail, a screenshot of which was seen on Twitter.
It further commiserated with the family of the Oromoni Junior who died after sustaining injuries over his alleged refusal to join a cult group in the school.


Since the incident, there has been outrage as many called for a complete shutdown of the school and demanded justice for the 12-year-old with #Justiceforsylvester trending on Twitter.
This followed the management’s claim that the deceased only suffered football injuries despite evidence of his last moments that indicated that the 12-year-old was beaten, as his lips were swollen and blood was spotted on his teeth, an indication that he also had injuries in the mouth.
Sylvester Oromoni, the father of the late student had alleged that parents of students responsible for torturing his son were on the move to fly them out of the country.


“The parents of the boys are wealthy. They withdrew them. The school called the parents to pick their wards; interviewed them. Some of the parents are planning to fly the children out of the country,” Mr Oromoni alleged while disclosing that Oromoni Junior was also given a chemical substance.

Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu Mourns Sound Sultan

The Governor said:

“The news of the passing away of talented musical artiste, Olanrewaju Fasasi is a painful one.

“As an established pop star, he was a bundle of talent, and used his God-given gifts in music, acting and sports to advance the course of humanity.

“Sound Sultan will be sorely missed by his family, friends, fans and the Nigerian entertainment industry as one of the pacesetters of modern hip hop music in Nigeria.

“Beyond just singing, the late star was notable for using his music to speak against poverty, corruption, bad governance and societal ills in Nigeria.

“I commiserate with his wife, children and all loved ones on behalf of the government and people of Lagos State and I pray that God grants him eternal rest.”
