Lagos police opens up on Sylvester Oromoni autopsy result

The Lagos State Police says the autopsy result of Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni is out.

Police commissioner in Lagos, Hakeem Odumosu on Friday said report of the post-mortem has not indicted anyone.

Recall that Oromoni was alleged to have died after being assaulted by five senior students of the school for refusing to join cult.

An autopsy conducted by consultant pathologist, Dr. Clement Vhriterhire, at the Central Hospital, Warri, Delta State concluded that Oromoni died of “acute lung injury due to chemical intoxication in a background of blunt force trauma.”

The student’s corpse was, however, conveyed to Lagos and a fresh autopsy was ordered by the police.

“The result is out. As of now, it has not brought out the issue of murder on anybody 

”Toxicology is still to be carried out which is the final one. The interim one has not. Based on that, the court order we got has elapsed and we have released the housemaster and others on bail as of yesterday (Thursday) because they have not been indicted of murder. It is only murder cases that are not subject to bail.

“Since the medical report has not indicted them so far, I think there is a need for them to have their freedom because bail is not the end of the case.”
