Sylvester's death is the most heartbreaking story I've heard this year. This is every family's worst nightmare. No parent should ever have to bury their child. I can't imagine the intense pain his family feels right now. Justice must be served #Justiceforsylvester #Dowen

The madness from the Nigerian Government has emboldened private sectors and individuals as well to do as they like.
A student was kïlled due to your school’s negligence, yet you had the guts to lie & try to cover up what has happened?#JusticeForSylvester

Children should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.#Justiceforsylvester

A friend who attended Dowen college spoke about how bullying was like a norm and had to leave. 10 years later and they are still at it.
Private schools that parents pay through their nostrils for, wanting the best for their children.
It is indeed A SHAME #Justiceforsylvester
