Police have arrested four students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) for allegedly acting in a questionable manner at the graveside of Eniola Jacobs, a 300-level student of microbiology, who died from an intake of a pest-control chemical ‘Sniper’.
The arrested persons, identified as Adeboye Timothy, Aramowo Stephen, Awe-Obe Raphael and Iwerima Jacob are said to be members, along with the deceased, of the Cherubim and Seraphim campus fellowship.
“We arrested the students at the graveside when they insisted they wanted to exhume the corpse for resurrection,” Mr. Adejobi said.
He confirmed that the students arrested were being detained at the Criminal Investigations Department of the Eleweran Division in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Jacobs died last Sunday at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) while being treated for toxin intake.
The incident is being investigated by the Lagos State Police Command.
While a version of Jacobs’ death alleged that that he was forced by some cult members to take the toxic substance, another claims he may have committed suicide over alleged depression.
