Lagos State Commissioner of Police Hakeem Odumosu on Tuesday said three of the five students of Dowen College, Lekki Lagos, accused by late schoolboy Sylvester Oromoni of torturing him, have been arrested.
Odumosu who made this known on Channels Television added that the arrested students are assisting the police in their investigation into the death of the 12-year old Oromoni.
The police boss who explained that the Command is set to go for the post mortem of the body in Delta state to ascertain the cause of death, however, did not give the identities of those arrested.
He said police authorities in both Lagos and Delta States are keenly interested in the outcome of the investigation to unravel the cause of Sylvester’s death.
Recall, Sylvester, while agonising before he died, mentioned Anslem Temile, Michael Kashamu and Benjamin Favour, as three of the five bullies who tortured him, giving him terminal internal injury.
His story sharply contradicted the school authorities’, which said the 12 year-old boy was injured on the football pitch.
The Lagos government, amid public outrage, has shut the school and the police have also moved in to investigate the matter.
