Two 200 level students of Kwara State University (KWASU), Tobiloba Daniel, and his suspected lover, Arewa Abayomi have been found dead in their hostel.
The deceased, it was learnt, were writing the ongoing examinations when the incident happened.
One of the students who did not want his name on print narrating what happened said, “We suspect there are lovers and 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 I suspect it’s a case of poison.”
Though the Director, University Relations, Hajia Saeedat Aliyu said there was no official communication on the matter, the state Public Relations Officer, Ajayi Okasanmi confirmed the incident.
According to the police spokesman, the two students (male and female), were reportedly found dead inside their room and “the police were alerted.”
He said when officers went to the scene of the event, they pulled down the door and took the corpses to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) for autopsy.
According to Olasanmi, investigation into the matter is still ongoing.
