The lifeless body of two undergraduates of the Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, identified as Tobiloba Daniel and Arewa Abayomi, have been found in a hostel room.
The 200-level students were found dead in Daniel’s hostel room outside the campus.
A student of KWASU told Daily Trust;
“We suspect they were lovers and became concerned when they were not seen during an examination and for three days.
“It was when some of their friends got to their hostel room outside the school that they found them dead and n#ked. We suspect it’s a case of poisoning.”
While spokesperson of KWASU, Hajia Saeedat Aliyu, said there was no official communication on the matter, police spokesman in the state, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident.
“The information is that the two of them were found dead inside their room and the police were alerted.
“Our officers pulled down the door and they were taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for autopsy. Investigation into the matter is ongoing.”
