Two KWASU students were discovered dead and naked in their lodge.
Tobiloba Daniel and Arewa Abayomi, both students at Kwara State University (KWASU), were discovered dead and naked in a hostel room.
The two dead students, both 200-level students, were discovered in Daniel’s hostel room outside the institution’s campus by colleagues who hadn’t heard from them in three days.
According to a student who spoke to reporters, the students are thought to be lovers, and a search was launched after they failed to appear for an examination. The student also speculated that the deceased may have died as a result of poisoning.
While the KWASU spokesperson, Hajia Saeedat Aliyu, stated that there was no official statement on the matter, a police spokesman in the state, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, who confirmed the incident, stated that the students were taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for autopsy and that the investigation is ongoing.
