Sylvester’s Family Appoints Femi Falana as Prosecutor


The family of late Sylvester Oromoni has hired the firm of human rights lawyer and activist, Femi Falana, to prosecute the case against Dowen college over the unfortunate death of their 12 years old son.

The9jafresh recalls that Late Sylvester Oromoni was allegedly beaten to death by his schoolmates over refusal to join a cult group in the school.

In the letter dated December 6, 2021 and signed by Taiwo Olawale, the lawyers have written to the office of Lagos State’s chief coroner requesting an inquest into the circumstances leading to the death of his client’s child.

The letter reads:

“Given the needless death of Sylvester Oromoni, we are compelled to request you to use your good offices to cause a coroner’s inquest to be conducted into the cause of death of this young and promising boy and make appropriate recommendations pursuant to Section 15 of the Lagos State Coroner’s Law 2007 that states that an inquest shall hold whenever a coroner is informed that the death of a deceased person within his coroner district is as a result of a death in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation.

We hereby request your lordship to conduct an inquest into the circumstance surrounding this tragic death and we are confident that your lordship will accede to our request with utmost urgency.”
