“Amnesty International calls on the Lagos state government to promptly, thoroughly and impartially investigate the death of Sylvester Oromoni and ensure that those found culpable are prosecuted and punished. #justiceforsylvester
“Today, 4 Dec 2021, Sylvester Oromoni would have been celebrating his birthday. The Lagos State authorities must investigate the incidents leading to Sylvester’s death and ensure no child goes through what he endured. Schools must be places of safety,” a statement by the human rights group read.
