“The students came back from school and started inhaling very offensive smell and on inquiry, it was discovered that it was from Blessing Amam’s room.

“Her flat mates called her but she did not respond. The door was forcefully opened and behold, Blessing and her lover were found dead. There were blood stains and marks on their bodies. Blood equally gushed out from their mouths and nostrils.”

That was the account of a neighbour after a final year student of the Imo State University, Blessing Amam, was on Monday found dead alongside her lover, identified as Emeka in her hostel in Umudagu-Mbieri, Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the state.

The deceased student was a final year student in the Department of Theatre Arts, who was expected to graduate in August.

It was learnt that she slept in her hostel room with her lover on Sunday but both of them could not wake up the next day (Monday).

The source, who expressed worry over the circumstances that could have led to the death of the suspected lovers, maintained that the deceased were full of life the night before.

The source added that there was no indication that they were in any trouble or distress in the room all through the night.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, who confirmed the incident said, “It was a case of sudden and unnatural death.”

He, however, said that the state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galandanchi, had ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of the lovers.
