The Lagos state police command says it has arrested two persons over the death of Stephen Urueye, a medical officer at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi Araba.

Urueye, who graduated from the University of Lagos on Tuesday, was stabbed to death near LUTH on Thursday.

His assailants were said to have seized his personal belongings after inflicting him with serious injuries.

Elkana Bala, public relations officer (PRO) of the command, said two suspects identified as Gbadebo Jimoh and Malik Adeboye, were arrested on Friday.

He said men of the Itire division of the command arrested the duo and that they had been transferred to the state criminal investigation department, Yaba, for further interrogation.

Medical students of UNILAG had staged a protest on Friday, lamenting the high rate of insecurity and calling on the school authorities to act.

Meanwhile, the management of LUTH has called for calm.

Kelechi Otuneme, public relations officer of LUTH, said all efforts to resuscitate Urueye both at the accident and emergency ward and later at the intensive care unit failed.

“Members of top management and Specialist Consultants, including the Chief Medical Director were on the ground till late this morning when he passed on,” he said in a statement.

“The matter has since been reported to the police and investigation is ongoing. We implore all staff to be calm and refrain from speculative or inflammatory comments or statements and go about their lawful duties as investigation continues.

“Our heart goes out to his family, colleagues, friends and the LUTH community as we pray that God will comfort us all on this time of great mourning.”
