The body of a 300-level Law student of the Imo State University, Owerri, Kingsley Chiwueze, has been found in a hospital mortuary in the state, five days after he went missing.
Chiwueze was declared missing last week Monday after efforts to locate him proved abortive.
According to Punch, the deceased two weeks ago made his intention known to contest for the office of Senate President of the National Association of Imo State Students.
The President of the Students Union Government in the institution, Arinze Oguike, who confirmed the development, said the body of Chiwueze was found in the morgue of the Umuguma General Hospital, Owerri, on Sunday.
Oguike further stated that students of IMSU stormed the mortuary and the attendant told them that the corpse was deposited by the management of the St. Joseph Hospital, Wetheral, Owerri.
The student leader said, “The attendant told us that Chiwueze’s corpse was brought by people from the St. Joseph hospital, Wetheral. We will go to the hospital to find out how they took custody of the student.”
One Darlington Ibekwe, said, “Kingsley hailed from the Oguta Local Government Area. Kingsley was declared missing on Monday and was just found; it happened that he was one of the victims of the shooting on Douglas Road and the most painful thing about all of this is the fact that the state government’s media handlers have come out to say that no life was lost to the security challenges.
“When Divine, an IMSU student, was shot dead last week, someone called her irresponsible and asked what a girl would be doing outside by that time.”
