He Had Injury, Though Minor–School Nurse Reveals About Late Student, Sylvester Oromoni Jnr

A Ukraine-trained resident nurse of Dowen College, Ms Omobola Kayode, has revealed that the late 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni Jnr., who was allegedly beaten up by some senior students had a minor injury on his thigh when she came in contact with him.

The nurse who holds a Bachelor of Science (BSc), in Nursing from Ukraine University, joined Dowen College three weeks before the death of Oromoni Jnr.

Testifying before an Ikeja Coroner’s Court, the nurse while responding to questions from the Coroner, Mr Mikhail Kadiri, said that she came in contact with the deceased on Nov. 22, 2021 when he complained of thigh pain.

She said: “The deceased came to the sick bay with his friend on Nov. 22, 2021 which was on a Monday and complained of thigh pain. He came in unaided and told me he fell when he wanted to pick his Bible.

“On that same day, I referred him to the Doctor. The Doctor told me to massage his right thigh with a deep heat spray and I gave him paracetamol thereafter.

“He slept and went to the hostel in the evening. Later in the evening, I went for follow up. The headmaster called him out for me to check him up. I saw that he was limping and I massaged him again with the spray.

“The Doctor called the mother when the deceased complained and she promised to send someone to pick him up on Tuesday.
