Two Imo Poly Students

According to a  report, two graduating students
of Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwo in the Ohaji/Egbema local government
area of the state, were reportedly
burnt to death last Wednesday. 
It was learnt that the students who were set ablaze had completed
their Higher National Diploma (HND) examination and were looking forward
to going for the mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) before
tragedy struck.
A student disclosed another version of the story surrounding their
death, saying it was linked to armed robbery attack, and recounted that
after robbing the inmates of their valuables at gunpoint, the two
unfortunate students were tied in their room and set ablaze by the
hoodlums. 
“There was an armed robbery attack in the hostel of the
deceased students. Unknown armed hoodlums stormed the hostel Wednesday
night and robbed the inmates.

“We were told that the two students were equally robbed, tied
in their room and set ablaze by the rampaging armed men, before fleeing
the scene”,
the student said. 
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer (PRO), of the institution, Darlington Oparaocha, confirmed the incident to newsmen. “It is true that two of our students have been reported dead. The incident occurred in a hostel close to the school,” Oparaocha said. 
He added that the school management was yet to ascertain if the
students died because of cult related activities or armed robbery.
“We can’t say definitively if they died of cult related
activities or sheer armed robbery. Their bodies have been deposited in a
nearby morgue,”
the PRO said.
