Police operatives in Lagos State have reportedly arrested three students of Dowen College, Lekki, in connection with the death of late Sylvester Oromoni.
The arrested students have remained in police custody for questioning on their alleged involvement in Sylvester’s death.

They were said to be cooperating with the police to unravel those that inflicted injuries on the deceased teenager.
The late student had mentioned the names of five senior students that bullied him, while in the throes of death.
The names include children of high-profile Nigerians whose identities are still under wraps, it was gathered.
