The first lady of Lagos state, Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu has reacted to the death of Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromomi, describing it as a slap on the face of the education sector and Lagos state as a whole.

Lagos State Government has since sealed off the school to allow investigation into the death of Oronomi who was allegedly attacked by senior students for refusing to join a cult.

Speaking on Monday during an advocacy visit to some schools in furtherance of the ongoing 16 days of activism against sexual and gender-based violence, Mrs Sanwo-Olu described the incident as unfortunate and heartbreaking, saying never again should it occur in the state.

She said, “I am aware that the Lagos State Government is at the moment investigating the incident and honestly it is something we are not very happy about. It’s a big slap on the face of the education sector, the community, and Lagos State as a whole.

“It is a case that is being investigated and for the parents and everybody involved, honestly, we commiserate with them and send our condolences.

“As I said, the case is being investigated and I will not be able to say much on it at the moment.”

The governor’s wife explained that the visit to schools was the third leg of the advocacy efforts, saying that a similar enlightenment programme had been held for the community groups and religious leaders by her office.

 “I am happy with the response we are getting. The students are interested in knowing about sexual and gender-based violence and joining the train to stamp it out in our state. We have distributed some resource materials that will help the teachers, the students, and the parents associations in the respective schools to know more and work against sexual and gender-based violence in our communities,” she said.

The schools visited include Dolphin Senior High School and Dolphin Junior High School, Tapa, Lagos Island under Education District Three; as well as Aje Comprehensive Junior High School and Aje Comprehensive Senior High School, Sabo-Yaba, Lagos under Education District Four.

The governor’s wife donated laptops, industrial cooking gas, and other educational materials to each of the schools.
