One Mudashiru Sheriffdeen who resides in Bosun Street, Ifo in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, has fled his home following his wife’s delivery of a deformed baby which weighed 3.25 kilogrammes at birth.
Punch Newspapers reports that the wife, Taiwo Sheriffdeeen, delivered the baby boy who had no arms around 2pm on Tuesday at a private hospital, Majotal Medical Clinic at the Ilogbo area of Ado/Odo-Ota Local Government Area of the state.
Speaking on the birth of the baby, the new mum said: “This is my first child and I do not know why I gave birth to this kind of a baby.
“Immediately my husband was informed that his son had deformity, he ran away and had not come to see me. He is a commercial bus driver, and we had been married now for almost two years before God decided to answer our prayers.
“When I was pregnant, we took every steps that the doctor directed us to take, but we did not know why we came about this calamity.”
She further said, “I have been warned by both my husband and our landlord not to bring the child home.
“The hospital management has asked us to leave the hospital. Now, this child and I have nowhere to go, I don’t need this baby. I want government to adopt him.”
