Subair Enitan, a 200-level student at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), was hospitalized after attempting a 50-hour wash-a-thon.
Enitan, a student in the Department of Linguistics and African Languages, began the attempt on November 24 at the Sub Car Park on campus.
She finished the marathon in the early morning hours of Monday.

Another picture showed the student raising her two hands, covered with a whitish substance.
Before the attempt, Eniola had expressed optimism that she would finish strong as the title holder of the longest hand-washing marathon.
“My background, the lessons life taught me have been motivating me to embark on this wash-a-thon. My experience is unexplainable, but it taught me to be selfless,” she had said.
“I am confident that I will reach the set goal of 50 hours of hand wash and by God’s grace I will emerge victorious.
“Despite the massive support from my colleagues here, I pray for the grace of God to be able to complete the task. My parents are very supportive and I urge Nigerians to rally round me while I work towards completing the task.”
The girl is reported to have informed the respected British reference book of her intentions in June of this year.
Since the beginning of 2023, Enitan has been among a rising number of Nigerians who have attempted to break world records.
Joyce Ijeoma, a Nigerian masseur, fainted on June 4 while attempting to set a new world record for the longest massage on different people.
