Oromoni’s Death: Dowen College to remain shut while other schools resume

The Lagos state authorities has stated that Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos state is not going to be reopened on Tuesday, January 4 till the investigation into the dying of a scholar of the college, Sylvester Oromoni, reaches a sophisticated stage.

This is as different non-public main and secondary faculties in Lagos put together to renew for the graduation of the second time period on Tuesday, January 4.


Recall that Oromoni died on November 30, 2021. His household alleged he was overwhelmed by a few of his seniors days earlier than he died.


Following the general public outrage generated by the incident, the Lagos state authorities on December 3, 2021, ordered the indefinite closure of the college.


In an interview with Premiumtimes, an assistant director accountable for the general public affairs unit, Ministry of Education, Ganiu Lawal, stated very quickly, the college would be part of others to renew however “not until ongoing investigations into the unfortunate incident reach an advanced stage.”


According to Lawal, because the matter was not strictly a state matter and with the involvement of the police and different events, “it would be ideal for all “t’s” to be crossed and “I’s” to be dotted.

“But I can assure you that very soon the issue will be resolved, but they are not resuming tomorrow” Lawal stated


In a press release launched on Monday, January 3, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Folasade Adefisayo, stated bullying, cultism, and different vices wouldn’t be tolerated in any a part of the college. Admonishing faculty directors to extend counselling of scholars in opposition to these vices, the commissioner welcomed college students, lecturers and faculty directors to the start of a New Year and second time period of 2021/2022 faculty session.


“Devise appropriate strategies to advance teacher, student interaction in order to gain an insight and expose negative tendencies before they metamorphose into unfortunate situations. Adequate monitoring, especially as it affects boarding school students should be enforced to prevent the incidence of bullying and all other vices,” the commissioner suggested
