Lifeless bodies of two students of a public secondary school in Osun State were late Tuesday evening discovered in River Osun at Osogbo, Osun State capital.

The students, identified as Farinde Boluwatife and Adeyemi Tope, both senior secondary school 3 students of the school, came to school on Monday for the ongoing West African School Certificate Examination being conducted by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

The duo were detected missing that same day and the school authorities promptly contacted their mates and relations.

A reliable source said some mates of the deceased, who knew about their movements, later informed the school's management that they might have gone to swim at River Osun located few metres from their school.

"We all went in search of them on Monday. Some of us know students usually go to the river located along East bypass to swim. Since that Monday, we have been searching for them, but late Tuesday, a farmer saw their bodies and alerted the school", a student, who does not want his name mentioned, said.

Sources said one of the deceased had already been buried, but management of the school they attended, it was gathered, were still unable to locate the parents of one of the victims.
