A woman with the Facebook name Oby Evelyn has given birth to a set of triplets after 14 years of marriage and trying to conceive.
Evelyn said that God has used the births to compensate her for her years of mockery and shame. She added that the genders of the babies are two girls and a boy.
The woman said the set of quadruplets is her eighth delivery. After the delivery, the babies and the mothered were transferred to the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) for adequate care.
The mother, however, said that the only male child among the babies died before they got to ABUTH and the remaining ones have been placed under intensive care.
Hauwa’u said that she was given two bags of blood to aide her during the delivery process. She added that though she is very healthy, medical officials said she needs to be monitored before she can be discharged.
His mother, Saudatu Haruna, said that the birth was not a surprising one as it runs in the family, adding that she gave birth to a set of twins on two different occasions. She said that her mother was also a triplet while her father was a twin.
