The Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Hakeem Odumosu, says three students of Dowen College, Lekki Lagos are currently assisting the police in their investigation into the death of Sylvester Oromoni junior, a 12-year-old student of the college.
Odumosu disclosed this in an interview with Channels TV.
The police boss said three of the five students mentioned by Sylvester before he died are already in custody and cooperating with the police in their findings. Although Odumosu did not give the identities of those in custody, he insisted that they are key suspects.
The police boss explained that the Command is set to go for the post mortem of the body in Delta state to ascertain the cause of death. He assured that police authorities in both Lagos and Delta State are keenly interested in the outcome of the investigation to unravel the mystery behind Sylvester’s death.
