Sylvester had reportedly told his parents before he died that he was beaten by some senior students of the school, and dived to drink a concoction, because he refused their cult group.
Odumosu had addressed a press conference in the state where he had told members of the public that the report on the inquest from Lagos on the cause of death of Sylvester showed that he died of “natural causes”.
