Oladokun Ayomide, a final-year student at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, has been exonerated of charges that he poisoned his girlfriend and another woman.

Remember that Ayomide was detained by the Ogun State Police Command on charges of poisoning Ugbokwe Mmasichukwu and another woman, Odumosu Semilore.

The police claimed that after inviting his lover to his home in the Surulere neighbourhood of the Camp section of the city last Friday, the suspect gave her a poison that was thought to be a concoction of brownie cakes, vodka, and an unidentified toxic substance.

However, in a statement issued by the Assistant Director of the Media Directorate of Public Relations at FUNAAB, Olasunkanmi Olajide, 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.

“The affected individuals were discharged from the hospital,” the school stated.

The police also disclosed that the student had been released on bail following a settlement by the parents of the students.

“He (Ayomide) is entitled to bail. The girl has recovered, and she has also been discharged from the hospital. The parents have settled,” she disclosed via a WhatsApp message.
