(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – A lecturer at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZK) Awka, Anambra State, South- East Nigeria, Mrs. Ngozi Uzodike, has been delivered of septuplets (seven babies), two boys and five girls.

According to him, they are finding it extremely difficult to foot the hospital bill and take care of the surviving six babies.

“The babies came out prematurely at 26th week gestation period and the hospital said they will need to be placed under intensive care unit and each of them will cost N3 million. One of them has died, remaining six babies, that is why they billed us like that.”

Their mother, who was very weak to speak after the delivery, said, “All I want is for philanthropists both in Anambra State and Nigeria at large to come to our aid in other to offset the hospital bill.

She equally called on the Anambra State government to come to their help.
