OAU student gives birth & attempts to flush new born baby down the toilet in school hostel
They say the girl's name is Oyin (let's leave her surname out for now) and she's a 400l student of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The incident happened early this morning around 7.
According to a student of the school who sent in the photo, a cleaner heard a baby crying inside one of the toilet stalls and saw blood coming from under the door as she went to clean the toilets. She quickly went to call other cleaners and the hall porters and they forced the door open.
When they entered the toilet they saw the student pouring water inside the closet, the baby turned upside down, with the head inside the closet. They also found bagco sack inside the toile
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 new born baby to Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital for treatment. The placenta fell while they were rushing the girl to the hospital. (Rescued baby pictured above)
