The Lagos State Government waded into the Dowen College crisis on Friday and ordered its indefinite closure over the controversy about the death of a 12 year-old student, Sylvester Oromoni.

Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, announced the closure after a meeting with the School’s Management and Staff.

The college on its own had announced a two-day closure, today and Monday, asking the students to use the time to study for the forthcoming exams.
