A Law student of the Imo State University, Owerri, who was declared missing, has been found dead after five days.
Kingsley Chiwueze, was on Monday, April 26 declared missing after efforts made to find him proved abortive.
The 300-level student who is a native of Oguta Local Government Area of the state, was involved in student union politics and declared his intention to run for the office of Senate President of the National Association of Imo State Students two weeks ago.
The President, Students Union Government, IMSU, Arinze Oguike, who confirmed the development, said the corpse was found in the morgue of the Umuguma General Hospital, Owerri, on Sunday.
He said students of the institution 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.”
When The Punch contacted the IMSU spokesman, Ralph Njokuobi, he said he would communicate with the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Akah, about the discovery.
The Imo state police spokesman, Orlando Ikeokwu, said that he had not been briefed about the latest development.
