Controversial Kemi Olunloyo, a Nigerian journalist, has reacted to the alleged assault of Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old Dowen College student, by some of the school’s classmates.
Olunloyo shared to a post on her Twitter account on Friday that if she disclose her findings about Sylvester controversy, Nigerians will believe she was hired by the parents of the pupils who were guilty for bullying and assaulting the student,
In her tweet, Olunloyo indicated that she knows what happened to Oromoni, but that she will let the police handle the situation.
Olunloyo wrote, “To everyone that messaged me since the week started, read Journalist Chris Nwandu CEO of CKN news Facebook post yesterday I will not be joining the team of investigative journalists and police investigators asked to do independent findings on #Justiceforsylvester.
“I know what happened here. The minute I post my findings Nigerians will say the other boy’s families have paid me. I no longer practise Investigative journalism in Nigeria after December as I announced in July. I have no opinion. May he Rest In Peace. The police will handle it.”
BEST NEWS NETWORK had earlier reported that Sylvester Junior, a 12-years-old boy was allegedly beaten to death at a Lagos school for refusing to join a cult.
According to Perrie, the 12-year-old boy’s uncle, his cousin was a student at Dowen College in Lagos State until his death, according to a post on his Twitter account.
Dowen College responded by denying the charges, alleging that the deceased was injured while playing football and was treated right away by the school’s resident nurse.
Perrie, Sylvester Junior’s cousin, did, however, broadcast a video about his health before he died.
Days before his death, 12-year-old Slyvester could be seen wincing in obvious pain in the footage.
