In an interview, Oromoni Snr demanded that those who played football with his son, as claimed by the school, should be allowed to speak up.


He also stated that all his family wants is justice for his son’s death, that everyone involved is brought to book.


He said, “The demand of the Oromoni family is justice. They should bring the killers to justice; those who gave him something to drink, those who beat him up, the people he mentioned. They should be allowed to say something.


“The school should come out and tell me, the family, and Nigerians the true story of the death of my son. Because if you’re playing football (as they claim), football is not played alone.


“Those who played football with him, those who were in the room with him, the other people that were in the school, the housemasters, the security, at least there must have been someone there watching them since they’re small children.”


During the interview, Oromoni Snr revealed that the school management did not reach out to them after he was taken home to Warri from Lagos to find out how he was doing.
