The total of five students of Dowen College in Lekki, Lagos, have been so far arrested by the Police in connection to the death of 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni.
The arrested five students have been remanded in a juvenile home, according the Lagos State Police Command.
Last week, Oromoni Jnr. died of complications as a result of injuries sustained from an attack by a group of five senior colleagues for allegedly refusing to join a cult group in the school.
