Following the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni, controversial journalist, Dr Kemi Olunloyo has reportedly stated that the deceased was not bullied or compelled to drink any dangerous substance, adding that the deceased willingly participated in all this as it was part of the initiation process into a cult.
This has sparked reactions, and a law firm, Falana & Falana’s Chambers, owned by Femi Falana (SAN), has reportedly asked the Lagos State Police Command to invite the social media personality for questioning.
According to a letter from the chamber, “Although the students and staff of the College suspected to have played a role in the brutal murder of Sylvester Oromini have made useful statements to the Police. One Ms Kemi Olunloyo has just introduced another twist to the incident.”
It read further that, “Ms Olunloyo recorded her false statement and has been circulating the same on social media in a wicked manner with the sole purpose of diverting attention from the ongoing investigation by the Police.”
It disclosed that, “Apart from attempting to destroy the name of Sylvester Oromoni, Ms Olunloyo has exacerbated the tragedy of his parents, family members and friends without any justification whatsoever.”
It noted that, “Even though the reckless statement is a figment of the imagination of Ms Olunloyo, we are of the strong view that she ought to assist the Police in the ongoing investigation into the cause of the death of Sylvester Oromoni.”
It maintained that, “We are therefore compelled to request the Police to investigate the allegation of false information being circulated by Ms Olunloyo on the gruesome circumstances surrounding the death of Sylvester Oromoni.”
It pointed out that, “If she cannot substantiate her reckless allegation, Ms Olunloyo ought to be charged with false information in the Magistrate Court in Lagos State.”
