“Against these findings, his death was ascribed to septicemia, lobal pneumonia with pyelonephritis (infection of the kidney) arising from the pyelonephritis of the right ankle.

He adjourned proceedings to February 14 for the continuation of hearing.
NAN reports that it was alleged that the 12-year-old student died on November 30, 2021, from injuries sustained in an attack by five senior students of Dowen College for refusing to join a cult.

The Lagos State DPP Advice released on January 4, however, disputed the allegation, stating that an autopsy conducted in Lagos revealed the real cause of his death as acute bacterial pneumonia due to severe sepsis.
