A woman identified as Sahura reportedly gave birth to 4 boys, all by herself in her home at Zakara area of Makera village, Dutsinma Local Government Area of Katsina State. Information gathered reveals that Sahura later proceeded to the General Hospital, Dutsinma.
A source in the hospital, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said though all the babies survived, they are underweight. The source also said the woman doesn’t have an ante-natal care attendance record and despite the effort of the management of the General hospital to accommodate them for adequate care, they insisted on returning home with the promise of checking back at the hospital the following day, which they never did.
According to the source, “it is true. The woman gave birth at home on Saturday. After the birth, the woman, the babies and the husband proceeded to the hospital on Sunday. “But when they were asked to stay in the hospital for further examination, they insisted on leaving to return the following day (yesterday).
But as I speak with you we have not seen them in the hospital. “And upon interrogation, we discovered she did not attend any hospital for ante-natal care. Again, there was no scan before the birth.”
