Lagos State Government Seals Off Dowen College

Following the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni at Dowen College it has been reported that the Lagos State Government has sealed off the college on Sunday.

According to earlier reports, the state government ordered the indefinite closure of the school on Friday,  pending the outcome of an investigation into the matter.

However, the  Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Ministry of Education, Ganiu Lawal, has reportedly stated that the school was sealed off to avoid any interference with the investigation being carried out.

According to him, “We issued a statement two days ago that the school has been shut and that we are conducting an investigation into the causes of the incident that claimed the life of Sylvester Oromoni and that was the basis of sealing off the school.”

He disclosed that, “The sealing off of the school is to make sure the investigation goes unhindered, so that nobody will have access to the place and to respect the family as they grieve and to give befitting honour to the boy, who died. We have already sent the school management a letter officially communicating to it that the school has been shut down; so, we just followed it up with the sealing off of the gate.”
