Dowen College shuts down for two days over death of Sylvester Oromoni

Dowen College shuts down for two days over death of Sylvester Oromoni

Dowen College, an elite school in Lekki Phase One in Lagos has given its students a short holiday, following the controversy and accusations triggered by the death of 12 year-old boy Sylvester Oromoni.

In a statement on Friday, the school said it will be closed for two days.

“In view of the situation concerning the school and considering the emotions of our students we have advised that our students stay home tomorrow Friday 3rd and Monday 6th December 2021.

“This will also afford the students opportunity to revise for their forthcoming examination starting next week.

Oromoni died on 30 November after a week of ill-health, said to have arisen initially from an injury sustained on the football pitch.

A cousin of Sylvester, Perrison, who announced his death took to Twitter Wednesday to accuse the college of condoning murder and trying to cover it up.

He revealed that the 12-year-old passed away on Tuesday after a series of tests and X-rays indicated that he sustained internal injuries from severe beating.

Perrison said: “We’re from Delta State, but he goes to Dowen College in Lekki.

“They called my uncle because his son was injured when he was playing football. Reaching the hospital, it was confirmed that he was being bullied and beaten up, causing internal damages.

“After tests and X-rays, it was confirmed he was beaten up badly. He died yesterday (Tuesday) morning, and his entire body was swollen.

“Before his passing, he said they had been pressuring him to join a cult group.. He said they were going to kill him if he talked.”

Perrison said Sylvester mentioned a few names of the students, who pressured him to join their cult group before he died.

“Anybody that can kill me should kill me now. My brother won’t die for nothing, Anslem Temile, Michael Kashamu and Benjamin Favour and Dowen College, just know he called your names before he died.”

Sylvester’s father, who also goes by the name Sylvester Oromoni corroborated Perrison’s account in a newspaper interview.

“They kicked him, matched his waist. He suffered liver enlargement due to congealed blood”.

He revealed the schoolboy’s last words before he died.

According to him, the boy said: “Mummy, I didn’t play ball. I didn’t fall”

He also said the parents of the boys who bullied his son are trying to fly them out of the country.

The senior Sylvester painted a picture of serial bullying of his son in the school, where he has three children.

The latest bullies, he said, are five, four in SS2 while one is in SS1.”

“They put fear in him so much so that, when you ask him, he might keep to himself and say, ‘they will kill me’. This way, we didn’t know what to do.

“I considered removing him since his sisters were still in the school.

“The new incident came to my knowledge on November 21st after the school called my wife to notify us that our son was in the school clinic, injured. My senior son, who was to make a London trip, came to see us in Warri,” he said.

“The next day, we sent a family friend to help pick up our son since he was the only person in Lagos and take him to the hospital.

“When he got there, he panicked, pointing out that he doubts it’s a football injury as the school claimed. He said the boy couldn’t stand because his waist was bent and swollen along with one side of his belly. His mouth was black. I asked, ‘is this really a football injury?’ He was taken to my house in Lagos but couldn’t sleep at night.

“I asked my eldest son to fly to Lagos on November 24 while I took a trip to Asaba, from where I’d also make for Lagos.

“On getting there, he screamed. ‘This is beyond football injury. Come to Lagos now,’ he told me over the phone.”

Dowen College shuts down for two days over death of Sylvester Oromoni

Dowen College authorities in a statement earlier narrated Sylvester’s illness from 21 November when it was reported that he was injured while playing football.

The principal of the school who issued the statement said first aid was applied and that Sylvester reported for class on 22 November.

But again, he complained of ill health and went to the sick bay for attention. He complained of pain in his hip.

The parents were called by the resident doctor, to take the boy for further medical attention.

It was not the parents who showed up, but the guardian in Lagos.

According to the statement, the guardian informed Dowen that further medical checks did not indicate any injury.

This account is different from the one given by Sylvester’s dad, who said the grievous report by the guardian on 23 November, made him to send his eldest son, then in Warri with him, to return to Lagos.

The eldest son also reported back that Sylvester was seriously ill.

The boy died a week later in Warri, triggering negative comments about the school.

Many celebrities and influencer have joined in the attacks, as they called for a probe.

Missing child: Prophet Babatunde of Sotitobire church FREED after earlier life sentence

Alfa Babatunde, sotitobire

The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, Ondo State capital, has discharged and acquitted the founder of Sotitobire Praising Chapel, Akure, Alfa Babatunde, who was earlier convicted by the state High Court over the missing of a one-year-old boy, Gold Kolawole.

Kolawole was abducted in the church in November 2019 by an unknown person, during the church service. Defendants were thereafter arrested by the men of the Directorate of State Security and later charged to court on a two-count of kidnapping and aiding and abetting to kidnap.

The lower court, presided over by Justice Olusegun Odusola in 2020 sentenced Babatunde and five others – Omodara Olayinka, Margaret Oyebola, Grace Ogunjobi, Egunjobi Motunrayo and Esther Kayode – to life imprisonment, having found them guilty of two charges.

However, the high court judgement was upturned as the appellate judge, Justice Hammah Barka, said the circumstantial evidence upon which the lower court based its judgement was not enough to convict the appellants.

Bride faints on groom, vomits, then gets defecated on during wedding vows

An unlucky bride fainted on the groom before her nephew defecated on her wedding gown while she was vomiting.

Hollee Lynnea-Kolenda Darnell, 22, who is from the US city of Minneapolis, Minnesota, got hitched recently to new hubby, Jackson, at a ceremony in Florida.

Though the day started well, a sudden bout of sickness caused her to swoon into her concerned hubby’s arms during their vows.

Her worried sweetheart can be heard asking whether she is okay as she comes back around.

Hollee – dressed in a flowing, white bridal gown – shakes her head and stumbles over to the edge of the gazebo, and vomits over the side.

In the clip, which has since gone viral, her caption read: “I kept trying to tell my husband I didn’t feel good and he thought I was joking.”

The footage ended there, but the bride said there was still more bad wedding luck to come.

In the caption she wrote: “My baby nephew pooped on my dress right after while I was puking.”

Hollee later explained the reason for the sudden sickness.

U.S. nabs Nigerians in $4.1 million bank fraud

U.S. nabs Nigerians in $4.1 million bank fraud

Oyekanmi Oworu, age 35, of Hyattsville, Maryland, pleaded guilty yesterday to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The guilty plea was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron and Special Agent in Charge Andrew McKay of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

According to his guilty plea, between February 2017 and July 2020, Oworu conspired with co-defendant Babtunde Ajibawo, age 55, of Essex, United Kingdom and others to fraudulently obtain checks made out to legitimate businesses, then fraudulently register shell companies to obtain state business certificates in the identical or similar name of the legitimate businesses to which the checks were made payable.

The conspiracy also used the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Modernized Internet Employer Identification Number (EIN) and the fraudulently obtained social security numbers of real individuals to obtain an EIN for the fraudulent business.

Specifically, on February 7, 2017, Oworu opened a bank account at a victim financial institution in the name of a real individual and deposited a stolen check made payable to a legitimate business for $265,168.20. Oworu subsequently withdrew the proceeds.

Additionally, on November 20, 2018, Oworu opened a bank account at a victim financial institution in a similar name of a legitimate business using the means and identification of A.S, a real individual.

After opening the account, Oworu deposited a stolen check made payable to the legitimate business for $58,713.50. Video surveillance captured Oworu depositing the stolen check in Washington, D.C.

During the course of the scheme to defraud, Oworu communicated with co-conspirators regarding the allocation of stolen proceeds, including the money he would personally receive for opening fraudulent bank accounts and depositing stolen checks. Specifically, on May 2, 2019, Oworu asked Ajibawo to send $3,000 to him and the balance to another co-conspirator in Fayetteville, Georgia.

Further, as detailed in the Superseding Indictment, Oworu and his co-conspirators attempted to conceal their criminal actions and evade law enforcement by relocating the fraud scheme to other jurisdictions. A substantial part of a fraudulent scheme was committed from outside the United States, specifically Nigeria.

In total, Oworu and his co-conspirators intended to cause a loss of at least $4.1 million to victim businesses, caused an actual loss of at least $756,175.30, and compromised the identifying information of more than 50 individual victims.

Co-defendant Ajibawo pled guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud on July 8, 2021 and is scheduled to be sentenced on December 8, 2021 at 10 a.m.

Oworu faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison followed by up to five of supervised release for conspiracy to commit bank fraud and a mandatory two years in prison, consecutive to any other sentence for aggravated identity theft. As part of his plea agreement, Oworu will also be required to pay restitution. U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake has scheduled sentencing for March 10, 2022 at 9:15 a.m.

United States Attorney Erek L. Barron commended the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration for their work in the investigation. Mr. Barron thanked Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mary W. Setzer and Judson T. Mihok, who are prosecuting the case.
