Mother of Two Gives Birth To Triplets In Enugu, Seeks Help



A woman, Joan Orajiobi, from Nnewi in Anambra, has given birth to triplet in Enugu on New Year day.

Orajiobi was delivered of two girls and a boy in a private hospital, the Praise and Grace Hospital and Maternity at No 1 Mbanugo Street, Coal Camp, Enugu State.

Orajiobi, who lives at Ologo Quarters, Uwani Enugu, said when she became pregnant in May 2023, she never knew it would result in triplet.


She added the labour started on Saturday but she visited the hospital on Sunday and on Monday, she was delivered of the triplet.

“I am a hair dresser, I have two girls already before this pregnancy occured in May but I never knew I was pregnant for triplet until scan said I am carrying twins.
“So today, around 7 am God gave me January gift and New Year Bonanza and throughout the period of this pregnancy, the babies were not giving me challenges.
“I even carry the pregnancy  to do customer’s hair only that my legs do swell.

People will be telling me to go and rest but I kept struggling to do the work to find what my family will eat,” she said.

She, however, called on Nigerians to come to her aid, saying it would be difficult for her and her husband to take care of the babies.

“I am pleading to Nigerians especially the governors of Enugu and Anambra State, Gov. Peter Mbah and Chukwuma Soludo and Nigerians to come to my rescue.
“They should come and assist us with anything they wish to do for us. Doctor said the triplet will cost us  N450, 000 because I delivered through Caesarian Section.

Also, her husband, Mr Cornelius Orajiobi, a trader, said they both hailed from Obiofia in Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

He said he felt excited when the scan showed that his wife  was pregnant for twins but never knew it was a triplet.

“I have two kids girls before and I never planned to have triplet before God surprised us.

“Nigerians should please assist us because this gift is bigger than what I can cater for alone,” he pleaded.

All efforts by NAN to speak with the Medical Director of the hospital proved abortive as he was not answering his calls.

Meanwhile, a nurse from the hospital who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that the hospital provided what was used in delivering the babies as the family could not provide any.
