-The remains the late pupil of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos State, Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, who died on November 30, 2021, has been laid to rest.  

His body was committed to mother-earth at the family’s compound at Ogbe-Ijoh, Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta. His funeral attracted several dignitaries including fiery lawyer, Femi Falana.

In a brief homily taken from the book of Isaiah 57:1-2, titled ‘Forever With The Lord’, Revd Goodluck Bayagbon of the God’s Grace Ministry, Warri, charged Christians to live a life worthy of emulation and strive to be heavenly candidates. While describing the deceased as a true believer in Christ, the cleric noted that Sylvester Oromoni Jnr who was 12 years old when he died, “had gone to rest with the Lord and free from all evil and calamity of the world.”

“We are here to celebrate a great Nigerian whose life was cut short. His short life was so eventful according to his biography that was just read to us now. The short life of Solomon cannot be compared with that of Methuselah. Sylvester touched the lives of his teachers, friends, and fellow students and we should reminded and ask ourselves what will be remembered for after this life. We must try as much as possible to rededicate our lives to God almighty. I must thank the parents of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr for standing and demanding for justice for their son.”
