Couple Gives Birth To Quadruplets


The Lagos Island Maternity Hospital was a beehive of activities last Tuesday, as a polythene bag seller, Mrs. Abosede Ojo, gave birth to a set of quadruplets.

The Lagos Island Maternity Hospital was a beehive of activities last Tuesday, as a polythene bag seller, Mrs. Abosede Ojo, gave birth to a set of quadruplets.

Following this, the 35-year-old woman, who resides at 42, Adesina Amusan Street, Abule Egba, Agbado-Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), has appealed to the public for help “because the family is too poor to cater for the four children.”

This is the first set of quadruplets to be delivered at the Lagos Island Maternity. The quadruplets, delivered in the early hours of Tuesday, include a boy and three girls. Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Charles Solanke, said the delivery was through normal birth, though the babies arrived a few weeks earlier.

“They are doing fine and recovering fast inside the incubators where they have been placed since birth. The least the hospital got close to such a multiple delivery was triplets and death usually occurs to either one or two, even after a caesarian operation,” he stated. Solanke added that Ojo’s case was different from other multiple births in the hospital because the children came through normal birth and are all alive.

Mrs. Ojo commended the Lagos State government for the incubators and free treatment since her admission and called on public-spirited Nigerians for financial assistance to take care of the babies, as her meagre income and that of her husband, who works at Itire-Ikate LCDA, could not cater for the needs of the babies. P.M.News learnt that the couple had been married for seven years without a child before the bundle of joy arrived.

P.M.News gathered that Mrs. Ojo initially went to Orile-Agege General Hospital from where she was referred to the Lagos Island Maternity for proper medical care. A senior medical officer at the Lagos Island Maternity Hospital said it was a miracle that the babies were delivered in the normal way and praised God for the miracle.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
