A Lagos State coroner has invited human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) following his request for an inquest into the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni after he was allegedly brutalised by bullies at the Dowen College in Lekki.

The news of Oromoni’s experience which allegedly led to his untimely death broke last week when his cousin- Perrison Oromoni, went on social media to narrate how he died. 

He went as far as calling out the names of his cousin’s alleged killers.

Perrison said the school called the deceased’s father, telling him that his son sustained injuries while playing football at the school.

But the school has consistently denied connivance, saying it is committed to unravelling the circumstances surrounding the young boy’s death.

On Monday, Falana called for a coroner’s inquest into the circumstances surrounding Oromoni’s demise.

Responding to his request, Mikail Olukayode Kadiri, the coroner for Epe District, called for a meeting.

He said the preliminary meeting would hold at the combined high court and magistrate court of Lagos State, Epe.

“I have the directive of the chief coroner of Lagos state, Honourable Justice M.A. Dada, to act on your request,” the letter addressed to Falana reads in part.

“You are hereby invited to a preliminary meeting scheduled to hold as follows: Wednesday, 15 December 2021.”

Before his death, Oromoni had named five students who he claimed attacked him in his room.

Three of them have been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.

  1. With the changes in family law over the last 30 years, including the adoption of equitable distribution in place of the old common-law rules, the adoption of laws protecting military spouses, and the adoption of support guidelines and various local rules promulgated within the various circuits, the area of separation and divorce has become much too complicated and specialized for someone who does not regularly handle these types of cases. It distresses us when clients come to us with poorly drafted separation agreements, and/or decrees which other inexperienced attorneys have handled. εˆ‘δΊ‹θΎ©ζŠ€
