A woman, identified as Cynthia Obieshi, was found dead on Sunday morning in a private hostel room between Nekede and Ihiagwa communities in Owerri West council of Imo State. She was dressed in her undies.
Also found dead in the kitchen was a man, Samuel Ezeji, dressed only in boxer shorts.
A source said the man came in on Saturday night with the lady.
Police said they saw a foamy substance in her mouth when they forced the door open upon receiving a call that “some people had a problem here”.
The hostel is rented mostly by students of Federal Polytechnic Nekede, it was said.
Police confirmed the incident, adding that the couple may have ingested hard drug.
