…My Son Was Tortured For Refusing To Join Cult , Father Of Late Student Breaks Silence
Instagram comedian cum activist, Mr Macaroni has reacted to the death of Sylvester Junior, a 12-year-old who was allegedly beaten to death for refusing to succumb to pressure by fellow students to join a cult.
Recall that Sylvester Junior, a 12-years-old boy was allegedly beaten to death at a Lagos school for refusing to join a cult.
According to Perrie, an uncle to the 12-year-old boy, via the microblogging platform, Twitter, his cousin until his death was a student of Dowen college in Lagos State.
The school, Dowen college denied the allegations, claiming that the deceased sustained injuries while playing football and was given immediate medical attention by the school’s resident nurse.
Cousin of Sylvester Junior, Perrie, then released the video on his conditions before he passed on.
12-year-old Slyvester was visibly wincing in excruciating pain in the video that was shared.
Reacting, to the video, Mr Macaroni sympathized with the family of Sylvester.
He also called out the school, revealing that football injuries don’t cause that much pain.
He wrote; ‘‘I deeply sympathize with the family of Sylvester Oromoni. I just saw the video that was recorded before the died. He couldn’t move, mouth swollen, teeth bleeding.. Football injuries don’t cause that much pain! Dowen college, there are a lot of questions begging to be answered.”
Meanwhile, the father of the late 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Sylvester Oromoni, has stated that his son was bullied and fed with a chemical substance by his fellow students.
But in an interview with TheCable, the father of the late student dismissed the claims made by the school management, saying that his son was actually bullied and beaten to a pulp for not joining a cult group in the school.
He also alleged that his late son was fed a liquid substance for refusing to join the group, adding that his son suffered liver enlargement due to congealed blood.
Oromoni said: “They even released a press statement. Was the principal there when the boy played the said football game? Can they identify who he played with? Where was the housemaster when he was playing it? The woman too is confused. Clearly, she’s trying to protect the school’s image. But a mother of children wants to hide the truth?”
The bereaved added that his 12-year-old son died in a hospital while receiving treatment for multiple internal injuries allegedly sustained in the hands of his fellow boys.
He stated that the five suspects had earlier bullied his son and collected all his foodstuffs and clothes. Oromoni added that he reported to the school but nothing was done.
The bereaved submitted that his late son said the five boys had barged into his room, put off the lights, and beat him up in the presence of other students.
Speaking in a muffled tone, he said: “My son suffered. His birthday is next tomorrow (Dec 4). I’ll celebrate it. I’ll have a cake baked. I’ll cut it on his behalf. The boys they mentioned were also reported to the school last term when they bullied Junior and collected all his foodstuffs; clothes. I have two daughters, one of whom earlier graduated. I had to remove the second after this incident. They asked this boy to describe the sister’s privates and this got to us.
“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 reconsidered 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 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.”
