Man Flees After Wife Delivers TripletsBy KELLYCHI 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, â€œI 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 donâ€™t even know his
whereabouts till now, but I am begging
him to come home for the sake of these
â€œWhen 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.â€
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.
