Sylvester Oromoni: Father Of One Dowen College Student Says Son Suffers ‘Paroxysm’

Mr Samuel Inyang, the father to one of the senior students of Dowen College, accused of beating the 12-year-old late Sylvester Oromoni Jnr. said his son suffered from paroxysm after returning from the police station.

A paroxysm is a series of sudden, violent, uncontrollable movements the body makes when someone coughs, laughs, or is in great pain.

Mr Inyang, a trader, said this at an Ikeja Coroner’s Court under cross-examination by Mr Akin George, Counsel to Lagos State Government.

Inyang, who said he was satisfied with the advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) after his son wrote a statement, added that his son had been in shock and crying every night.

George referred the witness to paragraph 17 of his statement to ascertain the credibility of his son’s medical condition.

After discussing with the family lawyer, the witness replied that we came with the word ‘paroxysmal’.

Probing the witness further, George asked the witness if his son had no reason whatsoever to appear before the hearing, and he replied in the affirmative.

Earlier, the Coroner, Mr Mikhail Kadiri, objected to the witness as a testifier before the court, adding that he had no credible evidence because he was not the student.

The counsel to the witness, Mr Olumide Akinnimi, prayed the court to allow the witness to testify that the son was a day student and not a boarder.

The Coroner adjourned proceedings until March 14.
