An Anambra woman, Mrs Ifeoma Nwaka, aged 44 from Enugwu-ukwu, married to Abia state born Mr. Ogbonnaya Nwaka has given birth to a set of quintuplets. She delivered at about twenty minutes past 1pm on Wednesday, August 8, 2018.
The births came after four years of delivering her daughter and first child.
Mrs Nwaka delivered through caesarian session at Life International hospital, Awka, is said to be having challenges feeding the babies and paying the hospital bills.
The mother of six told ABS correspondent Ngozi Obileri that she and her husband are petty traders at Owerri where they are based until she was admitted into the hospital some weeks ago as the multiple conception was detected at the very early stage.
They are appealing to the state government, good spirited individuals, and members of the public to come to their aid by donating cash and materials to them for the upkeep of the children.
