FUTO student drowns in Imo hotel swimming pool

Less than two months after three students of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) were found dead after taking tramadol and other harmful drugs, another student of the University has drowned in a hotel swimming pool.

The victim, a Microbiology graduate identified as Stephen Igwilo, died in a hotel in one of the host communities.

According to reports Igwilo who was among the last batch of graduates of the institution, went to swim in a swimming pool in a hotel located at Eziobodo before the unfortunate incident.

The Public Relations Officer of the University,  Mrs. Uche Bright-Nwaelue has confirmed the incident, adding that Igwilo was among the last graduating students of the institution.


  1. Hotels that build swimming pools without lifeguards should be henceforth responsible for deaths in their pools

  2. Hmm rest in peace
