The Federal University of Technology situated in Owerri, Imo state, southeast Nigeria, witnessed what many has described as the unbelievable on February 11, 2015, Wednesday  as  ‘miracle water’ was seen gushing out from a tree around the university bus park.
Below is how one of the students of FUTO, Joyce Chizor Abiaka, who was at the scene described what happened on her Facebook account:
I’m marvelled.
This happened in my school ( Federal University of Technology Owerri) today.

I was walking home with my friends and saw this huge crowd across the road, we decided to go take a look of what was happening and to know why people were carrying empty kegs and bottles towards the crowd. Lo and behold, there was water gushing out from a tree.

Yes! There they were, Nigerians doing what they know how to do best. People started thanking God for the miracle water as it will heal them of all their diseases. The water looking dirty and coloured (I guess that’s what their God can give). Some drank the water, some washed their body with it, some took it home.
What marvelled me most was seeing students from the Department of Microbiology and Biochemistry drink the water.
Phew!

I have nothing else to say, I just hope I don’t hear of the outbreak of cholera, typhoid and so on.

Also, Aniebo Anthony, who wrote for “The Infoscope -FUTO captured the event as follows:

Something unnatural occurred at Federal University of Technology Owerri today 11th February, 2015.

Around 10am today, students and staff of the institution were seen rushing to the site where water (I mean clean water) gushed out from an old tree opposite the All saint’s chapel FUTO.

Most of the students struggled to fetch the water as they believed it was a sign from GOD that FUTO is in the hands of God.


An eye witness who spoke to our team on anonymity said “We saw the water coming out of the tree with full force as if it was being pumped and we all rushed to fetch the water because we believe it was from God”.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N-SHzdoH4I" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N-SHzdoH4I</a>

According to a professor in the institution, he said “a big pipe running across that tree may have burst and water due to capillarity rose up the tree and is coming out through the pores of the tree”.

As at the time of filling this report, we are still yet to ascertain where the water came from as many believed it was from God.
We therefore use this medium to urge FUTO students to take things easy and make sure they get their own water from the tree with their jerry cans before it stops flowing.

A condition called bacterial wetwood (also called slime flux) is likely to blame. Bacterial wetwood occurs most frequently on elms, maples, poplars, oaks and birches, although it can occur on other trees as well.  Affected trees may leak copious amounts of liquid out of their trunks or branches, discoloring the bark and dripping onto the surrounding ground.
 
Bacterial wetwood occurs as after bacteria infect the wood of a tree. Bacteria can enter the wood through any wound in a trunk, limb or root. Once inside the tree, certain bacteria (called anaerobes) thrive in the low-oxygen environment there. Usually many diverse kinds of anaerobic bacteria are present in an infected tree, living together in a wet mess. They may multiply within the tree for several years unnoticed, and can slowly spread several feet from the initial entry point. As they reproduce, the bacteria produce slimy ooze and methane gas, which builds pressure inside the tree.
 
Pressure builds slowly, and eventually the bacteria are forced out of the tree through the weakest point available, usually near a wound or trunk crotch. The clear to brown bacterial ooze may seep from the tree continually through the growing season, leaving a yellow to brown stain on the bark when it dries.
 
Because the ooze seeping from a tree is full of bacteria, it may smell awful. Other bacteria, fungi, and insects may feed on the ooze once it is outside the tree, contributing to the stench. Often the liquid is toxic to plants, killing grass where it drips. Sometimes the ooze kills the bark where it seeps out, and elms with wetwood often develop yellowed leaves and branch dieback as a result of the toxic liquid.  On many infected trees, though, the foliage appears healthy, and wetwood often does not cause much damage to the rest of the tree.

Thank you so much, knowledge is power, please tell them.
