Read the full press release here:


After careful observation of the intricacies surrounding the unfortunate demise of Sylvester Oromoni, a student of Dowen College, Lagos, who allegedly died from injuries sustained during an attack by bullies suspected to be senior students of the College and the high level of irresponsibility exhibited by the College in an attempt to cover up the real reason of Sylvester death, we are compelled to make the following demands:

That the Principal and the House Master of Dowen College whose negligence led to the attack and death of the student and who had purportedly misled the parents of the deceased and the public on the cause of Sylvester with the view of derailing the cause of justice and protecting the culprits be arrested immediately for a thorough investigation and subsequent prosecution according to extant law if found culpable of negligence resulting in the death and action capable of derailing and manipulating justice. We, therefore, call on the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State to ensure they are immediately arrested.

We equally call for the immediate arrest and interrogations of names of students mentioned in the attack that led to the eventual death of Sylvester irrespective of how highly placed their parents are. There must not be any sacred cow as all of them must be arrested, adequately interrogated, and charged if found culpable.

By this press statement, we put on red alert foreign missions in Nigeria to deny entry to the following students who had been fingered in the attack leading to the death of Sylvester Oromoni until the investigation is concluded
Edward Brown
Benjamin Favour
Ansel Temile
Emmanuel (Other names not available at press time)
Micheal Kashamu

We note that if the allegation against these students is investigated to be true, they must be considered a threat in any country and they do not represent our country Nigeria as we cannot guarantee they will not constitute a greater threat to your country and its people. It is therefore important for them to be cleared of any wrongdoing in the death before allowing them access to your countries. Also if any of them has sneaked into your country, it is in the best interest of the security of your country to deport such to first clear their name in Nigeria before given access to stay in your country

We also call on parents of students who witnessed the assault at the dormitory to give their wards the necessary support and confidence to speak out to aid the cause of investigation to ensure bullying in schools is discouraged.
NANS will follow this case religiously in our attempt to be the voice of the voiceless and ensure a level playing ground at the cause of the investigation irrespective of how influential and wealthy the families of the purported culprits are.

Asefon Adedayo Sunday
The Revolutionary NANS President.
