Sylvester’s family made the request through their Lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) in a letter dated December 6 and sent to the Chief Coroner of Lagos State, Justice Mojisola Dada.

Sylvester is believed to have died as a result of bullying and torture by some students who wanted him to join their cult

 Falana said he has been briefed by Sylvester’s family.

Falana, in the letter, said that the circumstances leading to the death of the boy demands that the inquest be conducted.

The letter was signed by Taiwo Olawanle, a lawyer in Falana’s law firm.

The letter reads:

That’s why in the justice system a juvenile Justice is enshrined and a juvenile correctional center is established .The culprit should be arraigned and sentence accordingly .No pardon for a murderer regardless age . A 12 year old in state of NY got 30yrs behind bar for murder .
