A farmer, Idowu Oluwadara has recounted how his wife, Olufunmilayo gave birth to five children at once.
The story which was reported recently reported by BBC Yoruba Service has generated so much reaction as those who watch the video clip wonder at the great work of God.
Though one of the five children died few days after birth, Oluwadara said he never expected his wife to be pregnant again after the initial five children but was taken aback when his wife came and said she was pregnant again.
“We have had five children before which were born separately, I never expected I would have another child. The day she told me she was pregnant I was afraid. It was after three months she got to know she was pregnant.” he recalled.
His wife said she too did not expect the pregnancy noting that the scan initially indicated three children. But by the time she was about to put to bed, children turned out to be five in her womb.
The doctor, Afolabi Sikirullahi who took the delivery of the babies said he had not delivered five children at once in his medical career adding that the delivery was natural without any complication.
He said, “The delivery was through the natural process, it was not operation. I have not taken delivery of five children before.”
Unfortunately, the couple have not been able to pay a kobo to the hospital as at the time the story was reported.
“The couple have nothing. They don’t have money to pay. I have not collected a kobo from them since I took delivery of the baby.” Said the doctor.
