Popular actress and philanthropist, Tonto Dikeh has taken to social media to call for the commemoration of late Sylvester Oromoni’s 12th birthday at Dowen College premises.
The mum of one appealed to people in Lagos to leave flowers and gifts outside the school gate to mark the young champ’s posthumous birthday.
Sylvester was a student of the college who died after he was allegedly beaten up by his seniors for not joining their cult. The deceased would have turned 12 today, December 4.
Taking to her Instagram page, Tonto wrote,
“I woke up with so much pain. How do you lose a child in a safe zone and whose birthday is today? Sending love and light to Master Sylvester’s family and loved ones. Happy birthday young champ, we promise you justice. #justiceforslyvester
@dowencollegelagos, we will be leaving flowers and gifts outside your gate. Because today is a child’s birthday that died under your care!
Please, if you are in Lagos, leave a little gift and prayer at the gate of Dowen College. Thanks.”
Meanwhile, Tonto has sent someone to deliver some flowers at the school gate on her behalf because she is not in Lagos presently.
She also included a note that reads, “Happy birthday Captain Sylvester, Rest in Peace, Champ! You are celebrated. King Tonto.”
