A Kwara State indigene, Mrs. Abiola Afolabi, was on Saturday delivered of triplets in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

The triplets are two boys and a girl.  Afolabi already has two children.

Relishing the joy of the birth, her husband, Mr. Sunday Afolabi, told our correspondent that his wife did not conceive five years after their wedding.

He said, “It was after the fifth year that she conceived and was delivered of a baby girl. She got pregnant again after three years and was delivered of another baby girl. Now, six years after, she has been delivered of triplets.

“Today, I am a fulfilled man and I am very happy. I glorify God for His mercies.  I was shocked when I heard of the triplets because it was not what I planned. I only pray that God  will sustain me.”

The Chairman of the Imo State chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association, Dr. Darlington Akukwu, visited the family at the hospital to rejoice with them.

Akukwu, who presented gifts to them, stated that many parents had gone through the process of IVF to deliver their children and never succeeded, just as he added that the gifts were part of the NMA’s social responsibility.
