The Command said it also rescued two unconscious persons — a man and a young lady — from the scene.
The two young men described as undergraduate students at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State, collapsed and died allegedly while having group s-x with a female student, Police said.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, who confirmed the incident to Punch correspondent on Wednesday, said the students were suspected to have used s*x-enhancing drugs for the exercise.
The Police spokesperson who gave the names of the dead students as Ugochukwu and Uche (other names withheld), said the incident happened at Sunshine Lodge located at Ihiagwa, near FUTO.
According to him, the Police operatives who evacuated the corpses and took two others to hospital also recovered substances suspected to be Indian hemp and Tramadol from the scene of the incident.
“The corpses have been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, for an autopsy, while Richard and Onyinyechi whose condition is yet to be stabilised, have been referred to the FMC Owerri for further medical attention.
“The families of the deceased have been contacted, while the condition of the surviving persons is still being closely monitored,” the spokesman says.
Ikeokwu said that the state commissioner of Police frowns at drug abuse and other illicit acts by youths whose parents are working hard to ensure that their future is guaranteed.
When contacted, FUTO Public Relations Officer, Uche Nwelue, said that the varsity was aware of the incident but that it was still investigating to confirm if the victims were students at the institution.
