Why is #FreeUnilag4 Trending? Check it out!
|The late student|
So for some hours now the hash tag #FreeUnilag4 has been trending on twitter…yours truly decided to find out and found that it had to do with the death of one Eniola Jacobs.
Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Police Command, Mr. Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the students were 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.
The PPRO said the action was unacceptable to the parents and also appeared strange to the police. He confirmed that the students arrested are being detained at the Criminal Investigations Department of the Eleweran Division in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Jacobs died Sunday morning at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) while being treated for toxin intake.
Colleagues of the deceased, who were at the scene of the incident, told SaharaReporters that a bottle of Pepsi and a container bearing the chemical were found in his bag shortly after the incident, which took place at the library of the Faculty of Education.
“His screams were coming from the Education Library. He got assistance and was taken to the Alpha Base from where he was moved to the hospital,” a classmate said.
The deceased was said to have shouted: “sniper…sniper..!” while hurrying out of the library and calling for help.
Thus, other UNILAG students are campaigning via the hash tag for their release!
