A University of Ibadan student was reported to have drank a toxic substance after her boyfriend dumped her. She was quickly rushed to a hospital where she was attended to.
Tribune reports have it this way:
Dumped by her boyfriend, a student of the University of Ibadan (UI), drank bleach in anger.
The 100- Level student in the Faculty of Arts was said to have taken the solution, a product called Hypo, on Sunday when her lover, a student of the same university, told her it was over between them.
Students of the university are currently writing their second semester examination which began about two weeks ago and will be concluded by the end of this month.
Nigerian Tribune gathered from campus source that the lady was to be rushed to the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, to save her from dying.
It was learnt further that the news of a serious damage to her kidney had spread on the campus.
A singing sensation on campus was said to have quickly waxed a hip hop lyric entitled ‘Hypo Love’ to teach other students, especially ladies, the morals of the incident.
A source within the university said the lady is now fit and back in school after the poison was flushed out of her system at the institution’s Jaja Clinic.
However, he could not confirm why the lady decided to take the bleach as investigation into the matter was still ongoing as of press time.
Thank God she didn’t die. Years from today, she’ll probably be wondering how silly she was to attempt to take her life for such a flimsy reason.
