Oluomachi Nwojo, a 24-year-old student, gave birth to a set of quintuplets at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), which is located in Umuahia, the capital of Abia State.
The two boys and three girls, it was learned at the center, were born via caesarean section at around 8:24 am, and their conditions are stable.
The hospital source, who asked to remain anonymous, claimed that the boys, who were still inborn at the time of the visit, “would shortly be taken out to join their sisters” and mother, who was dozing off.
Oluomachi’s mother, Mrs. Cecilia Nwojo, and her brother-in-law, Chigozie Nwoye, both responded differently but both verified that twin birth runs in their respective families.
Mrs Nwojo, the elated grand-mother, who appears to be in her late 50s, while feeding one of the girls, said: “Oluomachi herself and her elder sister are twins.”
Similarly, Chigozie, speaking on behalf of Oluomachi’s husband, Chinedum Nwoye, who was absent at the time, said he has a set of twins.
Nwoye, who disclosed that they are from Anambra State joined the Nwojos in expressing gratitude to God, adding that they were ready for assistance from good-spirited sources.
