According to reports from students of Obafemi Awolowo University, a female student of the school allegedly gave birth in the Moremi Hostel hall toilet and attempted to flush the baby but was caught by the hall cleaners.
The girl, whose named was reported to be name Oyin is a 400l student of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The incident happened very early Wednesday morning.
According to a student of the school who sent in the above photo, a cleaner heard a baby crying inside one of the toilet stalls and then saw blood coming from under the door. She quickly went to call other cleaners around and they forced the door open.
When the cleaners entered the toilet they saw the student pouring water inside the closet, the baby turned upside down, with the head inside the closet.
One of the women dipped her hand inside and removed the baby…a boy, who was still very much alive but bleeding from the nose. The cleaners called school management who rushed both the girl and the baby to Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital for treatment. The placenta fell while they were rushing the girl to the hospital.
