The family of the late Sylvester Oromoni has accused the Lagos State Government of siding with Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, where cultists allegedly inflicted injuries on the teenager prior to his death.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Perris Oromoni, a relative of the deceased, said the family waited for the Lagos State Government to conduct a second autopsy and ensure justice but they were rather acting funny.
