President Muhammadu Buhari has promised that justice will be served for Sylvester Oromoni, a late 12-year-old Dowen College, Lekki student.
Sylvester was believed to have died as a result of injuries he received after an alleged assault by five of his coworkers who intended to initiate him into the cult.
In a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President denounced the act and stated that justice will be done regardless of who was involved.
“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,” Buhari was quoted to have said.
In order for the law to take its course, the President also asked the police to continue their investigation until they get to the bottom of the matter.
