Bernard Onigah

The Oromoni family is represented in the inquiry (SAN), while Bernard Onigah represents the Nigerian Bar Association.

The defendants and the Lagos government are equally represented.

Meanwhile, some groups have called for a speedy investigation “in the interest of justice.”

Nigerian News Agency in Lagos

The groups spoke to the Nigerian News Agency in Lagos after the session.

For Oromoni

Among the groups was Justice For Oromoni, whose coordinator, Mr Regent Youmor, called on the Judiciary to ensure that the late student’s case is concluded quickly.

He pleaded that the case be heard quickly to ensure a prompt administration of justice.

“To the layman, it will appear that justice is delayed if the case drags on.

“This is a national issue; it is not ethnic and not solely legal. It is more traditional and moral,” she opined.

Ebitimi Dio-Posibi

Mr. Ebitimi Dio-Posibi, president of the Ijaw National Congress (INC), Lagos chapter, who also spoke on the matter, said his group would appreciate a ruling “as quickly as possible.”

He said an expedited hearing was important because “the late Omoroni has not been buried.”

For Oromoni

“For Oromoni not to have been buried a year after his passing goes against the customs and traditions of the Ijaw people, particularly since he was just a child,” he said.

Miss Winifred Ibitaka

Miss Winifred Ibitaka, vice president of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), said she was not happy that the case was “taking time”.

Ibitaka stressed the need for justice to be delivered in time “so that the child can be buried.”
