Kwara State Police Command has commenced an investigation into the death of two undergraduates of the Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, who were found dead in their hostel.
It was also gathered that the deceased were both 200-level students of the state university and were writing the ongoing examinations when the incident happened.
The report quotes one of the students, who spoke on condition of anonymity, as saying that the deaths were mysterious, adding: “We became concerned when they were not seen during the ongoing examination in the university and also in their class for three days.
“It was when some of their friends got to their hostel outside the school that they found them both dead and naked. But we suspect it’s a case of poison.”
Though Director, University Relations, Hajia Saeedat Aliyu, however, said there is no official communication on the matter, spokesman of the Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, a Superintendent of Police (SP), who confirmed the incident, said: “The information was 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. But investigation into the matter is ongoing.”
