#SylvesterOromoni: Autopsy Reveals ‘Chemical Intoxication’ Caused His Death

An Autopsy carried out in respect to late Sylvester Oromoni, who was a student of Dowen College Lagos reveals that he died of “acute lung injury due to chemical intoxication in a background of blunt force trauma.”

A copy of the autopsy carried out by a consultant pathologist at the Central Hospital Warri, Clement Vhriterhire, was sighted by our correspondent on Saturday.

A medical expert, John Soper, said chemical intoxication or poisoning refers to a multitude of illnesses caused by the absorption of toxic chemical agents.

The expert in a researched work titled;  ‘Principles of Medical Therapy in Pregnancy said:

“Poisonings may be acute, subacute, or chronic and may be the result of accidental or intentional administration. Toxic chemicals may be absorbed by ingestion, injection, inhalation, or direct contact with the skin,” 

There had been reports that Oromoni died from injuries sustained in an attack by five senior students of the school for allegedly refusing to join their cult.

The 12-year-old boy died on November 30, 2020, after efforts to save his life failed.

His father had claimed that his child was beaten and fed a liquid chemical but Dowen College dismissed the claim.

The school claimed the boy sustained injuries while playing football with his colleagues.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Command had released the housemaster and other staff of Dowen College, Lekki arrested in connection with Oromni’s death.
