The Kwara State Police Command has commenced investigation into the death of two undergraduates of the Kwara State University, (KWASU), Malete, who were found dead in their hostel.
CAMPUS GIST learnt that the two students; Tobiloba Daniel and his suspected lover, Arewa Abayomi, were found naked dead in their hostel located outside the university campus, three days after their deaths.
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.
According to one of the students who spoke under condition of anonymity, the deaths were mysterious, adding that, “We became concerned when they were not seen during the ongoing examination in the university and also in their class for three days.
