Alaafin of Oyo’s estranged wife, Queen Ola, has reacted to the death of 12-year-old Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni.
In an initial report announcing Sylvester’s death, a Twitter user, who claimed to be a cousin of the deceased, had taken to the platform to call out the school and demand justice for the death of his cousin.
He claimed that after the boy was beaten to a pulp by the cult boys who he identified before he died.
The school however came out to counter the initial report by stating that the little boy died due to injuries sustained on the football pitch.
The school denied any existence of a cult group and insisted that Sylvester Junior injured his hip while playing football and, after initially administering first aid, his family was called to pick him.
His father has now countered those claims, revealing that the young lad was beaten and brutalized by students of the school.
Reacting to the turn of events, Queen Ola, who is a mother of three, expressed agony over the student’s death and stated that she would have burnt down the school if she were his mum. According to her, she doesn’t joke with her children.
“I saw a disturbing video of a 12 year old boy that was maltreated in school. I couldn’t hold my tears,” she wrote.
“If I’m the mother, I would have burn down the school by now by myself o. I don’t play with my kids. Like why on earth will you do that to an innocent boy?” she added.
