The Lagos state University, has been thrown into mourning following the mysterious death of a 300 level student in the Department of Microbiology, Eniola Jacobs.

The grapevine gathered that the decease died after reportedly taking a portion of the insecticide, “Sniper”.

According to a source who was a coursemate of his, Jacobs drank the insecticide on Saturday afternoon, and was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) soon after, where he was said to be responding to treatment until Sunday afternoon when he gave up the ghost.

Other sources, however, claimed that Jacobs was “forced” to take the deadly liquid by cultists who wanted him dead, for unknown reasons.

Attempts made on Sunday afternoon to reach the University spokesman, Mr Toyin Adebule, were unsuccessful, as his phones were switched off. However, his deputy, Mrs Nonye Oguama, told Lagos Metro that she was yet to be informed about the matter.

“I have heard about it, but until I get to the office tomorrow (Monday), I cannot tell what really happened.”
