The victims, who have been described as 200-level students from different faculties at the university, were reportedly discovered dead in their hostel on Thursday.
The students may have been poisoned, according to sources, even though the cause of death has not yet been determined.
They were identified as Emmanuella, a 200-level business administration student, Mercy, a 200-level pharmacy student, and Obidiaso Chidera, a 200-level political science student.
“Their death came as suprise to many of us. We’re still wondering what second year students were still doing in school after they were done with their exams,” the source said.
Another source, who described the incident as murder case said: “The students were locked up in the apartment. When we got access to the apartment, we found them lifeless with two of them on their beds in the room, while the third lifeless body was found in the kitchen.”
The incident has been confirmed by the institution’s management, who also stated that investigations have started.
A statement by its Public Relations Officer of the institution, Dr Harrison Madubueze reads: “The university management received with rude shock the news of the death of three of our students. At the moment, the date, time and manner of their death are still uncertain.
“However, the security operatives are investigating the matter and at the appropriate time, they will make the findings public.
“The university is not in any way aware that any of her students in the second year class and above were still within the University environment.
“This is because the institution closed on Wednesday 24th August 2022 after the second semesterexamination and will resume on October 1, 2022.”
