Comic Nollywood actor, Imeh Bishop, who is also known as Okon Lagos, has said that his kids would not attend boarding school.
According to him, his decision was linked to the death of Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, who was attacked by five seniors in the boarding school.
Taking to his Instagram page on Tuesday, Bishop Ime, “I have never boarded in a hostel in secondary school. The only time I did, was in my SS3.
“With the death of Sylvester and the post-death dramatic twist of events very fresh in memory, I will not allow my kids in a boarding school. If I may, then it will be if and only if life and health security are hugely guaranteed. Even at that, I’m still very doubtful!”
It is alleged 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 Sylvester reportedly died on November 30, 2021, after efforts made by families and friends to save his life failed.
However, LagosPost had reported that five students and five officials of Dowen College linked to Oromoni’s death have been absolved by the Lagos State Government.
