On what would have been Sylvester Oromoni’s 12th birthday, Nigerians brought flowers, balloons, cards, and teddies in front of Dowen College’s gate.
After allegedly being battered by senior males at school, the junior student died at a hospital in Warri.
Nigerians opted to honor him on Dec. 4, the day he would have been 12, by placing memorials in front of the school where he received the injuries that led to his death.
Take a look at the video below.
