President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of Sylvester Oromoni, 12 - year old student of Dowen Colege, Lekki Lagos, vowing that whoever that is found culpable in the bullying, torture and death of the boy will be punished.

Buhari's assurance of justice for Oromoni jnr is coming just as Dowen Parents Forum held Candlelight Procession for the late Sylvester Oromoni at the College's  sealed gate on Wednesday evening.

Speaking through Garba Shehu, his 
Senior Special Assistant(Media & Publicity) Buhari described the boy as 
one of the nation's bright youngsters doing excellently in school and bringing joy to the family.

He noted that if the incident leading to his death truly arose from bullying or cultism, Oromoni's case  must, therefore, act as a trigger leading to a permanent solution to this recurring problem.

"For several days now, the nation has been gripped by the news of the tragic incident at Dowen College, in Lagos with morbid details constantly emerging of how our young son, Sylvester Oromoni (Junior) met his death.

"President Muhammadu Buhari condemns the killing of Sylvester, one of our bright youngsters doing excellently in school, bringing joy to the family and if this incident is truly arising from bullying or cultism, the President assures that it must act as a trigger leading to a permanent solution to this recurring problem.

“I share the anger and grief up and down the country following this incident. On behalf of my family and I, and the government of the federation, I convey our heartfelt condolences to the Oromoni family, the government and people of Lagos State and give the firm assurance that this incident will be thoroughly investigated and the appropriate punishment meted out to all those who are culpable.”

"The President urges the Police to continue the ongoing investigation until they get to the root of the matter in order for the law to take its course, assuring that justice will be done, no matter who is involved," the President stated.
