FUNAAB clears student accused of poisoning girlfriend


In a reversal of earlier reports, the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta has cleared Oladokun Ayomide, a final-year student, of allegations that he poisoned his girlfriend and another woman.

Recall that Wuzup Nigeria had previously reported that Ayomide was arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly poisoning Ugbokwe Mmasichukwu and Odumosu Semilore. 

The police claimed that Ayomide had administered a poisonous substance, believed to be a mixture of brownie cakes, alcohol, and an unknown harmful substance, to the two women after inviting them to his residence.

However, FUNAAB has now issued a statement clarifying the events and exonerating Ayomide of any malicious intent. According to the university’s Assistant Director of Media and Public Relations, Olasunkanmi Olajide, the cakes purchased by Ayomide contained a high level of alcohol, leading to the unintentional intoxication of the consumers.

Medical examinations at the university’s health center confirmed the absence of malicious intent, and the affected individuals were discharged from the hospital the following day. 

Ayomide had no malicious intent, as confirmed by the medical examination at their institution’s health centre. The affected individuals were discharged from the hospital the following day and even participated in their examinations on November 10, 2023.

“It is crucial to emphasise that all charges against Ayomide, brought forth by the parents and the school of the affected ladies, have been dropped due to the lack of malicious intent,” the school stated.

The university’s statement aligns with the confirmation from the Ogun State Police Command, which stated that Ayomide had been released on bail following a settlement between the parents of the students involved.
