Female Delta State Undergraduate “Runs Mad” After Eating Cake Baked With Indian Hemp

A 17-year-old university undergraduate has landed in hospital after eating a piece of cake prepared with Indian hemp.

It is unclear whether, or not, the teenage student of Delta State University knew Bassey Aniakan – the male student who reportedly shared the cake to friends at a hostel in the school.

After eating the cake, the female student started behaving abnormally and was rushed to the hospital for medical attention

“Aniakan was arrested and he stated that he added Indian hemp to the ingredients used in baking the cake,” the police said.

The incident happened on Wednesday, September 2. Police said they got the report of the incident at about 9:00 p.m. that day.

The incident happened inside a hostel at Delta State University, Abraka.

The girl is responding to treatment in hospital

Possession, consumption and sale of Indian hemp is illegal under Nigerian law. However, its illegality has not dissuaded Nigerian students from inventing creative ways of consuming it.

A student of the University of Lagos told this news site that his friends, on several occasions, cook Indian hemp alongside beans.

“Some of them even buy and eat cakes laced with the substance,” he said.

In a related development, the Police in Delta have arrested a male undergraduate of Delta State University, Abraka for allegedly giving a female student cake laced with Indian hemp. Police spokesperson, DSP Celestina Kalu said in a statement issued to newsmen on Friday in Asaba, that after eating the cake, the victim started behaving abnormally and was admitted in a hospital for treatment.

She said that a male student from the University reported to the police in Abraka on Sept. 2 that Bassey Aniekan, a student of the university gave the cake to the female student, aged 17.

She said that during interrogation, Bassey confessed that he added Indian hemp to the ingredients used in baking the cake. “The suspect admitted to have used Indian hemp to bake the cake which he gave the victim; we are still investigating the matter,” Kalu said.
