The father of Sylvester Oromoni, the 12-year-old boy who died after they allegedly beat him in school because he did not join a cult, reacted to a claim that said his son died from a football injury.

Dowen College had claimed earlier that the young student was injured when he was playing football, which made them call his parents to pick him up from school for further medical treatment at the hospital.

In an interview with news reporters, The Cable, his father said before the death of his son that his son revealed that he did not play football or fall down as the school claimed.

His father allegedly said that Sylvester said a group of five boys entered his room, put off his room light, and beat him up in the presence of other students in the room because he did not join the cult.

His father revealed that this is not the first time they have bullied him in school and that they have reported it to the school authorities several times.

Reports say that Sylvester died in a hospital where they were treating him.

His father told The Cable, “I found out about the new incident on the 21st of November after the school called my wife to tell us that our son was in the school clinic, injured and receiving minor treatment.”

“His mouth was black and swollen, and I asked if it was really a football injury. They carried him home from Lagos, but I was not fit to sleep for the night.”
