A Woman, Joan Orajiobi, from Nnewi in Anambra, has given birth to a set of triplets in Enugu on New Year’s Day.

Orajiobi delivered two girls and a boy in a private hospital, the Praise and Grace Hospital and Maternity at No 1 Mbanugo Street, Coal Camp, Enugu State.

Speaking to the press from the hospital, Orajiobi, who lives at Ologo Quarters, Uwani Enugu, said when she became pregnant in May 2023, she was made aware it would result in a triplet.

She added that the labour started on Saturday, but she visited the hospital on Sunday, and on Monday, she delivered the triplet.

“I am a hairdresser, I had two girls already before this pregnancy occurred in May but I never knew I was pregnant for a triplet until the scan said I was carrying twins.

“So today, around 7 am 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 carry the pregnancy to do customer’s hair only that 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 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 State, Gov. Peter Mbah and Chukwuma Soludo, and Nigerians to come to my rescue.

“They should come and assist us with anything they wish to do for us. The doctor said the triplet would cost us N450,000 because I delivered through the Caesarian Section.

Also speaking, her husband, Mr Cornelius Orajiobi, a trader, said they both hail from Obiofia in the Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

He said he felt excited when the scan showed that his wife was pregnant with twins but never knew it was a triplet.

“I have two kids girls before and I 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.
