By 11:12 Thu, 01 Aug 2013 Comments

A 30-year-old mother of triplets, Bose

Akapo, has cried out for help in search of

her husband, Biodun Akapo, 45, who

reportedly absconded shortly after his wife

delivered of triplets.

Vanguard gathered that the father of the

triplets, who is a farmer at Afojupa

village, a suburb of Owode-Egba town in

Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area

of Ogun State, bolted when he received

the news of the birth of the triplets.

It was further gathered that the wife and

the runaway husband are indigenes of

Ibadan and have been living together as a

happy family in the village for over a

decade, before the arrival of the triplets.

Narrating her ordeal, Bose, who delivered

the babies last Wednesday at a maternity

home in the town, explained that she was

bailed out at the hospital by a traditional

ruler of the town, Oba Kolawole

Sowemimo, who paid the hospital bill.

She further said her husband had gone

out before she started having pains and

was assisted to the hospital on a

motorcycle by a neighbour.

According to her, “I never thought of three

babies until when I put to bed because I

already had two children who are ages five

and eight. I was taken to hospital on a

motorcycle by a neighbour when I started

noticing signs of delivery, because my

husband was not at home at that time. But,

surprisingly, I gave birth to triplets and

when the news got to my husband he did

not visit me throughout my admission in

the hospital, and has since remained

incommunicado. I don’t even know his

whereabouts till now, but I am begging

him to come home for the sake of these

innocent babies.

“When I got to the hospital, because I

could not find my husband, I contacted

our traditional ruler who rendered financial

assistance and provided clothings and

other medical materials for the babies.”

WAPBAZE.COM gathered that the woman and

the triplets are all in stable condition and

have been discharged from the hospital.

Speaking on the development, the royal

father of the town, Oba Kolawole

Sowemimo, expressed optimism that the

state government would attend to the

needs of the family, describing the Ibikunle

Amosun-led administration as a

government known for the welfare of the

citizens and residents.
