#JusticeForSylvester: Reps urge IGP to take over investigation
The House of Representatives has urged the Inspector General of Police to take over investigation into the murder of Sylvester Oromoni, a student of Dowen College, Lagos.
The call was sequel to a unanimous adoption of motion by Unyime Idem (PDP-Akwa Ibom) at plenary on Tuesday.
The lawmakers said all those mentioned in the case should be properly investigated and that social workers should be sent to all boarding schools to forestall future recurrence.
Moving the motion, Mr Idem said that the social media had been awash with the report of the death of 12-year-old Oromoni who died on November 27.
He also said that a 14-year-old student of Premier Academy, Lugbe, Abuja, Karen-Happuch Akpagher died in June 2021 after she was sexually assaulted.
According to the lawmaker, six months later, there is still no news of the suspect being arrested for prosecution.
The house urged the Ministry of Education to set out guidelines for the operations of boarding schools across the country.
The Committees on Education, Youth Development, Women Affairs and Social Development were asked to follow up the investigation and report back within two week.
