A female final-year undergraduate of the University of Benin, in Edo, Maria Precious Tunde, has reportedly died in her sleep.
According to a report, the tragedy struck on Sunday at the deceased off-campus hostel, located at Ekosodin village, a student town near the school.
It was also gathered that the late Maria, until her demise on Sunday, was a final year student in the Faculty of Education, Ugbowo campus of the institution.
The report revealed that the deceased was hale and hearty before going to bed the previous night but failed to wake up the following day (Sunday), leaving hostel mates in rude shock.
According to sources, all efforts to revive her proved abortive, as Maria was reportedly found stone-dead by co-tenants who subsequently invited her parents to the scene.
