A dormitory mate of Sylvester Oromoni, who claimed anonymity on social media, narrated that some seniors came into their hostel with belts, beat and fell the deceased from his bunk.
According to a report by Daily Trust, the housemaster was aware of the beatings.
He wrote: “Sly got beaten up on Saturday, 27th of November by the boys that was named and the ring leader was Favor; Aslem and Michael are more of followers.
“I was in the room the day they came in, Sly was on his bed and we were just talking and playing in our hostel room as usual after we cleaned. At about evening time, the senior boys came in and senior Favor switched off the light they were holding their belt with them. They were not 5 but 6 senior boys but I don’t know who exactly was part of the beating but I know senior Edwin was there for sure.
“They beat him up and he fell from his bunk and after they were done they called us back to the room and Aslem said the school rules piss him off and if we snitch the way Sly did, they would do even worse to us. Sly was still on the ground and Favor kicked his head again before they left.
“In the morning on Sunday, Sly was on his bed and he complained that he couldn’t walk so the senior called us to their room and said if we snitch they would know and that if they ask us what is wrong, we should say he played football.
“The dorm master knew there was a beating that occurred so I don’t understand why they are lying on the internet that he wasn’t aware of.
“Even the following morning sly went to the sick bay and it was obvious he was beaten and because no football can break bones and moreover that week we didn’t have or play football or sport activities.”
