An undisclosed source, who is a course mate of the deceased, was quoted to have said “Jacobs drank the insecticide on Saturday afternoon and was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH soon after.

“He was responding to treatment until today (Sunday afternoon) when he gave up the ghost,” the source added.
