A female student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife (names withheld), on Wednesday morning, gave birth to a baby in a toilet in the facemale hostel of the institution. There were, however, unconfirmed reports that the lady allegedly attempted to flush her new born baby into the water closet in the toilet. Sources say the incident occurred on Wednesday morning, at the popular Moremi Hall within the campus. The young mother, who is in her late 20s, a student of Agricultural Extension Department in the institution, was allegedly caught by one of the cleaners, who raised the alarm when she noticed thick blood streaming down the sewer. Another source hinted that the student may not have deliberately wanted to flush the baby, but felt like defecating when the new born baby suddenly gushed out from her virgina into the water closet. However, as of the time of filing this report, the student and the baby had been taken to the health centre of the institution, where they are currently receiving medical treatment. It was learnt that the Dean of Students' Affairs in the university, Dr (Mrs) Lateefat Durosinmi and the security department had taken over the matter.
