The killers of Sylvester Oromoni, a student at Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos state, would not be spared, according to President Muhammadu Buhari.
After an alleged assault by his senior coworkers, the 12-year-old died.
“If the incident is truly arising from bullying or cultism, then it must act as a trigger leading to a permanent solution to this recurring problem,” said President Buhari, who also condemned the killing of Sylvester, one of Nigeria’s bright youngsters doing excellently in school and bringing joy to the family.

As a result, the President urged the police to continue their investigation until they get to the bottom of the problem so that the law can run its course and justice can be served, regardless of who is involved.
