Management of Dowen College Lekki, Lagos state have asked students of the school to stay at home for two days.
This was contained in a circular emailed to parents on Friday, December 3, 2021.
It comes after a12-year-old student identified as Sylvester Oromoni Jr. died after allegedly being tortured by fellow students for refusing to join their cult group in school.
Dowen College in a statement released on Wednesday, denied the allegation but Sylvester’s family insists he was tortured at school, adding that he provided the names of his alleged bullies before he died.
The family also released videos of their son moments before his death show his severe injuries and to prove that he was physically assaulted.
Dowen College has now asked students to stay home today, Dec. 3, and on Monday Dec. 6.
Students would be expected back in school after Monday to prepare for forthcoming exams.
