Conjoined Twins Born To Jobless Couple In Abuja

What should have been a moment of joy for a jobless couple, Mr. Elisha Bassey and his wife, Patience, turned to sadness when a set of conjoined twins was born to the family on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old resident of the Federal Capital Teritory, Abuja, who hails from Akwa Ibom State, and his 30-year-old wife, are currently at a loss.The conjoined twins were delivered at about 7 pm on July 2, 3013 at LUNA Hospital in Gwarinpa, Abuja.

Bassey said, “The babies are joined from the stomach and chest down. They have three legs joined together, one liver, one kidney and one intestine.”

Ironically, the scan that was conducted didn’t reveal that it was conjoined twins. Their mother is still at the hospital and yet to recover because they were delivered through a Caesarean section. The babies have been transferred to the National hospital.
