The family of late Sylvester Oromoni has filed a petition against controversial investigative journalist Kemi Olunloyo, over her comment concerning the 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni Jr’s death.
Recall that the 12-year-old was allegedly beaten to death by his fellow students at Dowen College, Lagos, for refusing to join a cult. However, in a chat last week, Olunloyo had claimed that the deceased minor willingly agreed to join the cult and received the beating that led to his death, among others.
