Mobile 'phone health alert

In Nigeria it seems that mobile 'phones can really cause death. Panic is apparantly sweeping Lagos after two people died shortly after reciving calls from these numbers:

0802 311 1999
0802 222 5999

One belongs to a subscriber to V-mobile, the other does not exist (or maybe it does). They look like old BT Cellnet (or was it Vodafone?) numbers. Maybe that's why 0802 became 07802...
