A 300-level law student of Imo State University, Owerri, Kingsley Chiwueze, has been found dead, five days after he went missing.
Chiwueze was on Monday declared missing after efforts made to find him proved abortive The Punch reports.
Our correspondent gathered that the deceased who was involved in student unionism hailed from Oguta Local Government Area of the state.
According to The Punch investigation, Chiwueze had two weeks ago made his intention known to vie for the office of senate president of the National Association of Imo State Students.
The president of the Students’ Union of IMSU, Arinze Oguike, confirmed the development to our correspondent on Sunday.
He informed that the corpse of the law undergraduate was found in the morgue of Umuguma General Hospital, Owerri, on Sunday.
He said that the students stormed the mortuary and the attendant told them that the corpse was allegedly deposited by the management of St Joseph Hospital, Wetheral, Owerri.
When contacted, IMSU spokesperson, Ralph Njokuobi, said that he would communicate with the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Peter Akah, about the incident.
The Police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, said he had not been briefed.
