This revelation comes on the heels of the Lagos State Government’s inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Sylvester’s demise.

Before his untimely demise, Sylvester was renowned for his exceptional intellect and maturity beyond his years. A young mind brimming with potentials, he demonstrated remarkable initiative and an extraordinary sense of humor, endearing him to those fortunate enough to cross paths with him.
