Oromoni: Concerned Citizens protests, gives 7-day ultimatum for de-registration of Dowen College


A group of Concerned Citizens on Wednesday protested at the gate of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos where Sylvester Oromoni, 12, was allegedly beaten to death by some other students.

In the video of the protest, monitored on BBC News Pidgin, the group also called on the Lagos State Government to withdraw the registration of the school without further delay.

A spokesperson for the group, a woman, who was not identified, also decried the attitude of the state government and its officials to some issues, especially the safety of students in public and private schools.

They also called for the arrest of the owners of the school, the management team, security guards, housekeepers and others who allowed some indicted students to leave the premises without being handed over to the appropriate authorities for investigation.

They, therefore, called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folashade Adefisayo, to do the needful within seven days or they would lay total siege to the school premises until their demands are met.

They also condemned what reportedly led to the fatal accident on Tuesday afternoon where a truck crushed some students to death in Ojodu area of Lagos.

The truck driver was allegedly being pursued by traffic officers for flouting some rules before he rammed into the students.

According to them, security agencies and traffic officers should devise reasonable and civil means of apprehending errant motorists and not chasing them all over town, thereby putting the lives of people in danger.

They called on the government to fish out those involved and bring them to book.
