An undergraduate of Imo State University (IMSU), who was declared missing, has been found dead 5 days after.

Kingsley Chiwueze, a 300-level law student, was declared missing on Monday, April 26, after he could not be reached on the phone and his whereabouts remained unknown.

Chuwueze, 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 of the Students Union Government of IMSU, Arinze Oguike, who confirmed the development on Sunday, May 2, said the corpse of the law undergraduate was found in the morgue of Umuguma General Hospital, Owerri.

He said some students stormed the mortuary and the attendant told them the corpse was allegedly deposited by the 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.”
