The police command in Lagos State says Dowen College student, Sylvester Oromoni Jnr., died from natural causes.
The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, however, stated that a coroner’s inquest would still be carried out to put to rest the cause of the youngster’s de#th.
Odumosu told newsmen on Friday that police investigations revealed that the deceased student was not taken to the hospital for treatment after he was removed from the school’s sick bay about 10 days before his de#th.
The commissioner said the two autopsy results – from the deceased student’s family and all the parties involved and the Lagos State government – showed that Sylvester d!ed a natural de#th. He also stated that the toxicology tests from Delta and Lagos states also did not indicate any signs of v!olence on the body of the late student.
He said 13 pathologists and consultants from all the parties involved were present during the conduct of the autopsy in Lagos.
He added that all suspects denied the allegations of tort!re, b#llying and administering of po!sonous substance to the deceased.
The police maintained that the allegation insinuating that Oromoni was being forced to join a cult group was not established as other students had since denied it.
