The Coroner Inquest set up to unravel the circumstances leading to the death of a student of Dowen College, Sylvester Oromoni Junior, has admitted in evidence video clips containing the deceased’s final moments.
The video evidence was tendered while Sylvester Oromoni Senior, father of the deceased, testified in an ongoing inquest before the Coroner, Mikhail Kadiri sitting in Ikeja.
