LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – A 200-level student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Subair Enitan, aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the longest handwashing by an individual, has been hospitalised.
Enitan, a Department of Linguistics and African Languages student, embarked on a handwashing marathon on Friday and ended the session in the early hours of Monday, November 27, 2023.
But in a now-viral video, she can be seen lying down on a bed in a medical ward while showing her bruised hands.
Another picture showed the student raising her two hands, covered with a whitish substance.
It is believed that the student notified the prestigious British reference book of her intentions in June this year.
Enitan joined the growing list of Nigerians who have attempted to set new world records since the beginning of 2023.
