The police command in Lagos has interrogated three Dowen College students over the torture and eventual death of Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old student of the school.
Police commissioner Hakeem Odumosu disclosed this to Channels TV on Tuesday but did not reveal the identities of the three students.
Mr Odumosu stated that the suspects were cooperating with the police in their investigations, adding that efforts are in place for a post-mortem examination of the remains.
The Lagos CP added that the school principal, housemasters, and other officials of the Lekki-based school are also assisting the police with information as the Command launched a full-scale probe into the circumstances culminating in the death of Oromoni on November 30, 2021.
Before his death, Oromoni Jr had disclosed to his family that five students of the college tortured and forced him to drink a chemical substance for refusing to join a secret cult.
Last week, the father of the deceased, Sylvester Oromoni, in an interview with The Cable, alleged that the parents of students responsible for torturing his son were on the move to fly them out of the country.
