Hair dresser gives birth to triplets, pleads for assistance


Mrs Joan Orajiobi p, a resident of Nnewi in Anambra, has given birth to triplets in Enugu on New Year day.

Orajiobi was delivered of two girls and a boy in a private hospital,

Orajiobi, who live at Ologo Quarters, Uwani Enugu, said when she became pregnant in May 2023, she knew it would result to triplets.
She added that labour started on Saturday but she visited the hospital on Sunday and on Monday was delivered of the triplets.

“I am a hair dresser, I have two girls already before this pregnancy came in May, but I never knew I was pregnant with triplets until scan said I am carrying twins.

“So today, around 7 a. m., God gave me a January gift and New Year Bonanza and throughout the period of this pregnancy, the babies were not giving me challenges.

“I even carried the pregnancy to work even when 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 that 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 States, to come to my rescue.

“They should come and assist us with anything. Doctor has put my bill at N450,000 because I delivered through Caesarian Section.”

The 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 set of triplets.

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

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