3 Students Of Anambra Varsity Found Dead In Hostel

Three (3) female students of the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam campus, Anambra State were found dead in their hostel on Saturday. 

A source within the school identified the students as Obidiaso Chidera (200-level Political Science student), Mercy (200-level Pharmacy student), and Emmanuella (200-level Business Administration).

The cause of their deaths could not immediately be ascertained as of the time of filing this report, but it was gathered the deceased might have mistakenly locked themselves in their room from outside.

However, the school authorities said security operatives are investigating the matter and at the appropriate time, they will make the findings public.

A source said, “The students were locked up in the apartment. When we got access to the apartment, we found them lifeless with two of them on their beds in the room, while the third lifeless body was found in the kitchen.”

While confirming the incident, the management of the institution said the death of the students came as a shock to it.

The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Dr. Harrison Madubueze, said the institution received the report of the incident with rude shock.

In a statement, Madubueze said, “The university management received with rude shock the news of the death of three of its students. At the moment, the date, time and manner of their death are still uncertain.

“However, the security operatives are investigating the matter and at the appropriate time, they will make the findings public.”

Madubueze said the university was unaware that any of her students in the second-year class and above were still within the University environment.

“This is because the institution closed on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, after the second-semester examination and will resume on October 1st, 2022,” he said.
