Popular human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana has come out to blast the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu for saying deceased Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni died of natural causes.

He recently had his say via a press statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Mr Hakeem Odumosu is not telling the truth because the fact that the deceased died of natural causes is yet to be established by the coroner’s inquest.

He then urged the CP to stop making comments on the unfortunate death of Sylvester Oromoni since he has said the matter is pending before the coroner.

His words, “Under the Coroner Systems Law of Lagos State, only the coroner appointed by the chief coroner is competent to speak authoritatively on the cause of death of any person whose death arose from suspicious circumstances. So, the statement credited to an official in the Office of the DPP and the CP is deliberately meant to subvert the inquest being conducted by the coroner.”

“An inquest is a judicial inquiry into the cause of death of any person whose death is unnatural in Lagos State. One Adetutu Osinusi, who wrote the legal advice purportedly clearing the suspects was not and is not the Director of Public Prosecutions in Lagos State.”

“On January 4, when she allegedly wrote that illegal advice, there was no acting or substantive DPP in Lagos State. We therefore advise the CP to stop making comments on the unfortunate death of Sylvester Oromoni since he has said the matter is pending before the coroner.”
