A woman identified as Sahura reportedly gave birth to quadruplets, all boys, in her home at Zakara area of Makera village, Dutsinma Local Government Area of Katsina State without any form of local or medical assistance.
It was gathered that after giving birth, Saturday evening, Sahura later proceeded to the General Hospital, Dutsinma.
A source in the hospital, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said though the babies are underweight, they all survived.
It was also gathered that the woman doesn’t have an ante-natal care attendance record and despite an offer to accommodate them for further examination in the hospital, they insisted on going back home to return the following day (yesterday), a promise they did not fulfill.
The source said;
“it is true. The woman gave birth at home on Saturday. After the birth, the woman, the babies and the husband proceeded to the hospital on Sunday. “But when they were asked to stay in the hospital for further examination, they insisted on leaving to return the following day (yesterday).
But as I speak with you we have not seen them in the hospital. “And upon interrogation, we discovered she did not attend any hospital for antenatal care.
Again, there was no scan before the birth.”
