Kwara Varsity Students Die Hostel, Corpses Found Naked

Published

on

Two 200 level students of the Kwara State University, Malete, Kwara State, Tobiloba Daniel and Arewa Abayomi, have been found dead in their room in a hostel outside the premises of the institution.

Daniel and Abayomi were studying for the ongoing examination in the institution when they decided to go to the hostel to continue preparations for their exams the following day.

Things, however, took another turn when their colleagues observed that the duo didn’t sit for their exams the next day and were not seen on campus for three days.

Bothered by the development, the colleagues, after searching for them on the school premises to no avail, reportedly went to their room in the hostel to check on them.

Upon gaining entry into the room, the colleagues were said to have found the lovers lying naked and lifeless on the bed.

Our correspondent gathered that the school management was immediately informed about the development and the police division in the area, after being notified, detailed policemen to evacuate the corpses to the mortuary.

A student, who spoke in confidence, said the lovers were not seen on campus for three days, adding that after their corpses were discovered in the hostel, students started suspecting that they were poisoned.

The student said, “We suspect they 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 both of them dead and naked. But we suspect it is a case of poison.”

A picture in possession of our correspondents showed Daniel and Abayomi lying lifeless on the bed. They were both naked but while a duvet covered Daniel, Ayobami was half naked.

Reacting to the development, the Director, University Relations, Dr Saeedat Aliyu, who confirmed the incident, said that the university security was yet to give official details on the sad development.

“As of now (Tuesday morning), we have no official details on the incident. We don’t even know their names but I heard about the incident. The security has not released any information on the victims but I believe that they are still working on it.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Okesanmi Ajayi, while confirming the incident, said the command had commenced investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of the undergraduates.

He said an autopsy would be carried out on their corpses to unravel the cause of the incident.

Ajayi said, “The police were informed that two young students were found dead in their room in a hostel off campus. We went there and they were confirmed dead by doctors.

“I was not there but with the picture I saw, the man was covered up and the lady slept facing down half covered. The naked corpses were evacuated to the hospital for autopsy. We are still investigating the cause of the incident.”

Adeleke: Timi Frank Urges NJC, EFCC to Probe Osun Tribunal Judges, Says Judgement Compromised

Published

By

A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, on Friday, described the majority judgement of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that purportedly sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke as highly compromised.

Frank in a statement in reaction to the judgement in Abuja, said the verdict fell short of expectations and does not reflect the will of the majority of the people of Osun, who freely elected Senator Adeleke as Governor.

He called on the National Judicial Council to urgently cause a probe of the verdict with a view to restoring Adeleke’s mandate as well as penalizing any of the tribunal members found to have compromised on integrity.

He also called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to urgently investigate the judges who wrote the majority judgement and prosecute those found to have based their decision on other considerations rather than the true facts canvassed during the hearing of the case.

He also called on the United States of America to place a visa ban on the Osun tribunal judges found to have used their highly exalted position as arbiters to derail and frustrate the growth of democracy in the country.

He commended the judge who wrote the minority judgement for sticking to the truth and siding with the wishes and aspirations of Osun people that elected Adeleke during the last governorship election.

He however urged the people of Osun to remain calm and law abiding with the certainty that the mandate they freely gave to Adeleke would be retrieved at the appellate court.

He vowed that Nigerians will not fold their arms and watch any attempt to use the judiciary to again steal Adeleke’s mandate through the backdoor.
