A father has pleaded with Nigerians to come to his help after his wife died after delivery.


The man identified as Mr Hassan Isyaka Ibori, an indigene of Lafia-Obessa community in Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State asked Nigerians to help him take care of his set of twins.


Ibori, a young farmer who resides at Anyone community in Adavi Local Government Area, lost his wife, Nana Hawa Ibori, barely an hour after she was delivered of a set of female twins.


Narrating his ordeal to journalists on Tuesday in Adavi, amidst tears, Ibori said the sad incident happened on June 2, 2024, at a private hospital in Anyone community.


“I took my wife to the hospital around 4:00 am when she wanted to give birth on 2nd of June, 2024, and she delivered a set of female twins around 7:00 am successfully.


“I started jubilating at the arrival of the twins, but my joy suddenly turned to sorrow when my wife died about one hour after she gave birth.


“Shortly after the delivery, she started complaining of stomach pain and she was attended to by the nurse who gave her injection to relief the pain, but she died about one hour after.


“It was so painful losing my wife shortly after she gave birth to our set of twins. We never expected twins, but It is God that brought them to us, there is nothing we can do,” Ibori said with tears rolling down his cheeks.


He lamented the difficulties he has been going through in feeding and ensuring that the babies’ nutritional needs were adequately met using formula-feed.


“It has been God that has been helping me to feed the babies since my wife died.


“I am farmer. I have been using farming to take care of myself and my family, but for the past two years now the Fulani herdsmen have been destroying our farmlands without tangible harvest.


“Because of the destruction of our farmland, I get little or no harvest most of the time. It has not been easy for me feeding the twins as well as my other children,” he added.


Ibori, therefore, made a passionate appeal to the state government, the governor’s wife, commissioner for women affairs as well as other well meaning individuals to come to his aid.


“I am yet to get over the shock of my wife’s death, I have exhausted all my savings in taking care of the babies and I am left with nothing.


“I am appealing to the state government through the Ministry of Women Affairs and well meaning individuals to kindly assist in taking care of the twins as I am helpless.


“I am pleading with our mummy, the wife of our governor, Hajia Shekinat Usman Ododo, to come to my aid to enable me take good care of the twins.”


Ibori appreciated members of his community for the support they had rendered in taking care of the twins thus far.
