This denial comes on the heels of a BlackBerry broadcast which read:
“Three headless bodies suspected to be that of females were thrown off a Range Rover Sport Jeep at Ijebu Ode-Ibadan Road just now. One is fair in complexion with University of Lagos identity card (Yetunde Ajao) inside her bag. The second is an Olabisi Onabanjo University student, Oyindamola Esan, also fair in complexion and tall.
“The last one is short, plump and dark with no identity. Please kindly notify their families and friends if you know them before the bodies are run over by vehicles.”
But the spokesperson for the state police command, Muyiwa Adejobi, said that the rumours were mischievous and simply untrue.
“When I heard about it, I alerted our men who went there but saw nothing and got no report of such thing in the area,” Adejobi said.
Meanwhile, we gathered that officials of UNILAG had cross referenced the institution’s data with the one of the names of the purported victims without success.
