A 20-year-old street hawker who was allegedly raped while selling her products, has given birth to triplets and she narrated how she discovered at the point of delivery that she was having more that one child. The woman named Nkechi Ezenwa, from Umuna Ubommiri in Mbaitoli LGA, Imo State, said she was raped while selling bananas and she got pregnant. On June 14, 2020, she went into labour and was rushed to the nearest health center in her neighbourhood.
Ezenwa said she was delivered of a baby boy at the health center. After her son was born, they discovered there were more babies and she needed to be operated on.
She was rushed to another hospital where two more babies were delivered via caesarean section.
Unfortunately, she hasn’t been able to clear her medical bills and she reached out to well-meaning Nigerians to assist her financially. Facebook user, Chidiebube Okeoma shared her story on the platform with details of the hospital where the babies were born and how people can donate.
