Mrs Ukamaka Nkwegu, who was recently delivered of triplets at Maternal and Child Health Clinic, Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital has sent a ‘Save-Our-Souls’ message to Ebonyi State Government and good-spirited individuals to enable her take care of the babies after her husband abandoned them.
It was gathered that Nkwegu, who, until she was abandoned, was the third wife of her husband, was brought to the hospital from her village, Ozibo Obegu Ibenta, Ebonyi Local Government Area of the state, after prolonged labour.
Matron of the health centre, Mrs Elizabeth Odoh, said Ukamaka, who is in her late 20s, was abandoned at the mercy of the maternity staff and some people who have been taking care of the babies.
Last Tuesday, a ‘Good Samaritan’ took her from a park where the woman was kept and was in labour for hours. They abandoned and accused her of witchcraft, that didn’t want her to deliver her baby.
