Tobiloba Daniel and Arewa Abayomi, two Kwara State University (KWASU) students, were discovered dead in Daniel’s dorm room outside the university.
Both of the victims were 200-level students who were taking the current exams at the time of the tragedy.
“We assume they were lovers and grew concerned when they were not seen during a test and for three days,” a KWASU student informed Daily Trust.
“It was when some of their friends got to their hostel room outside the school that they found them dead and naked. We suspect it’s a case of poisoning.”
According to KWASU’s spokesperson, Hajia Saeedat Aliyu, there hasn’t been any official communication on the subject.
Meanwhile, the police spokesman in the state, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident, saying, “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.”
