Woman 29 delivers quintuplets in Nnewi, as tricycle operator husband begs for aid


 www.odogwublog.com reports that a Twenty-nine (29)  years old woman , Mrs Ndidi Odo has given birth to quintuplets in Nnewi, Nnewi North council area of Anambra state.
She delivered at God's Mercy hospital, Obiuno, Otolo-Nnewi, Anambra state.
Hundreds of people gathered to glorify God and behold the couple Mr and Mrs Abuchi Odo who got blessed with the quintuplets.

The mother of the five new born babies,(four boys and a girl) said she didn't know that she was carrying quintuplets in her womb and that the scan only revealed that she was with a twin.

The twenty nine year old mother of the new quintuplets said she earlier had three girls which she got one after the other in different pregnancies and the girls were followed by a triplet (two boys and a girl).

She said that she later lost the boys and was left with four girls noting that she was just prepared for her last pregnancy which she hoped would be a boy only to be blessed again with four boys and a girl.

Mrs Odo who said she is an apprentice in a tailoring business was delivered of the quintuplets through caesarean section said she is in good health but only needs the assistance of well-meaning individuals in the industrial town of Nnewi and beyond to come to the aid of her family as they can no longer cater for nine children.

A nurse in God's Mercy hospital, Blessing Odemena who had a tough time wadding off the mammoth crowd that trooped to her hospital narrated how the lady came to her to complain about the fact that she was desirous of having a baby boy as customary in Igboland.

Odoemena also collaborated the fact that the scanning done during the antenatal revealed only a set of twin but when her patient stomach became too big, the doctor proscribed a further scan which indicated triplet.

She however said that she is not surprised that the pregnancy ended in a quintuplets as her patient's tummy was extra big though in good condition of health.

Mr Abuchi Odo, a tricycle operator who actually wanted to run away after realizing the magnitude of responsibility that just fell on him said he was prevailed upon to stay back by Prince Justin Brown and his elder brother.

He said his old rickety tricycle cannot put enough food on the table for nine children outside him and his wife.

He passionately appealed to Anambra state governor, Chief Willie Obiano, Dr Mr Peter Obi, Cletus Ibeto, Dr Ifeanyi Uba, Sir Louis Onwugbuenu, Dame Virgy Etiaba, Archbishop Godwin Okpala and Bishop Hilary Okeke and other public spirited personalities to rise to his help.

Prince Justin Brown who is a family friend of the Odos also pleaded for the affluents individuals to help the poor family who just got blessed with five children in addition with the four children they earlier have.

He said he personally arranged for food for the nursing mother and her husband who according to him is bereft of any idea on what to do so that the blessing bestow on the family would not become a source of worry.
