When contacted, the Director, University Relations of KWASU, Dr Saeedat Aliyu, said the authorities of the institution were yet to receive official information on the reported death of the two students.

She said on Tuesday that investigation was ongoing on the incident.

“It was when some of their friends got to their hostel outside the school that they found them both dead and naked.

“But we suspect it is a case of poison,” according to the sources.
