Earlier reports by MAD indicated the arrest of Ayomide by the Ogun State Police Command on suspicion of poisoning Ugbokwe Mmasichukwu and another lady, Odumosu Semilore.
The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, has cleared Oladokun Ayomide, a final-year student of the school, over the allegation of poisoning his girlfriend and another lady.
The police said the suspect administered a poison believed to be an admixture of brownie cakes, alcohol, and an unknown harmful substance after inviting his girlfriend to his residence in the Surulere community in the Camp area of the city on Friday.
However, according to a statement issued by the Assistant Director, Media Directorate of Public Relations, FUNAAB, Olasunkanmi Olajide, which was made available to our correspondent on Thursday, the cakes purchased by Ayomide “contained a high level of alcohol. This led to the unintentional intoxication of the consumers.
“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.
