FUTO sex tragedy: We recovered male victim on top of female colleague – Hostel mates
Students of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State, who live at Sunshine Castle Hostel, Ihiagwa, on Friday told Saturday PUNCH that one of the three students who died after an alleged group sex fueled by suspected overdose of Tramadol and Indian hemp, was found dead on top of his unconscious female colleague, Onyinyechi Okafor.
Chibuike Oguoma, who spoke to our correspondent during a visit to the hostel where the tragedy occurred on Tuesday, said that while one of the victims was recovered on top the female victim, another male, also a victim, was found in the bathroom holding a soap.
While urging security agencies to unearth the actual cause of the students’ deaths, he said that it was hard to believe that the drugs taken were what led to their deaths.
He said, “It was the caretaker who called and when we entered the room, we found one of the boys on top of the girl. He was already dead.
“The other one was found dead in the bathroom. He was holding a soap in his hand.
“The Police were alerted and came and carried all the bodies away. Indian hemp and Tramadol tablets were found in the room.
“Two of them had died before we opened the room, while the other two were rushed to the hospital. We want Police to do a thorough job in finding out the real cause of their deaths.”
Our correspondent noted that the room where the tragedy occurred has been locked, while the area wore a mournful look.
Public Relations Officer in Imo State, Orlando Ikeokwu, disclosed that the only surviving person in the suspected foursome sex, Onyinyechi Okafor, is in stable condition.
