Dowen College has informed its parents and students that they will keep the academic session going online after the Lagos State Government instructed closure of the school indefinitely.
The state government stated that the school will remain closed pending the outcome of the investigation into the death of Sylvester Oromoni Jr. allegedly tortured in school by other students.
The school authorities had initially asked students to stay at home for two days, saying they will resume next week for exams. This development led to an outrage as Nigerians questioned why the school is carrying on with exams when a student died due to an incident that allegedly happened in the school.
Dowen College has now sent another message to parents and students following the announcement by the Lagos State Government that the school will remain shut indefinitely.
In the mail, Dowen assured parents that they will continue online.
