The Coroner, Magistrate Mikhail Kadiri, inquiring into the cause of death of the late student of Dowen College, Lagos, Sylvester Oromoni, has returned a verdict that the deceased died a natural death.


In a judgment, the coroner also held that the death was however avoidable as the negligence of the parents and the medical team also contributed to it.


Magistrate Kadiri absolved some students of Dowen College named in the incident as he concluded that they played no part in the death of Sylvester, and should not have been involved in the matter.


The coroner called for a synergy between the police and the medical team going forward as well as for the police force to ensure due caution before arrests are made.


Oromoni died on November 30, 2021, with his death attributed to bully and an alleged poisonous substance he allegedly drank in the school.
