Kingsley Chiwueze, a 300-level law student of the Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri, has been found dead, five days after he went missing.
Chiwueze, a native of Oguta Local Government Area of the state, who on Monday, April 26th, was declared missing was said to be deeply involved in students’ union politics.
The undergraduate was said to have two weeks ago declared his intention to vie for the office of Senate President of the National Association of Imo State Students (NAISS).
The President of the Students Union Government of IMSU, Arinze Oguike, who confirmed the death of Chiwueze, said the corpse of the law undergraduate was found in the morgue of Umuguma General hospital, Owerri, on Sunday.
He said the students stormed the mortuary and the attendant told them the corpse was allegedly deposited by management of a private hospital, in Owerri.
The student leader said: “The attendant told us that his corpse was brought by people from a private hospital on Whetheral Road. We will go to the hospital to find out how they took custody of the student’s corpse.”
In his reaction, Imo Police spokesperson, Orlando Ikeokwu, said he had not been briefed on the incident.
