Jobless Husband Flees As Wife Gives Birth To Triplets In Enugu
Area, Enugu State, could turn to tears after her husband absconded on
hearing that she was in labour for triplets.
Odo told the News Agency of Nigeria in Nsukka on Friday that her
husband, Mr. John-Patrick Odo, disappeared when he realised she would
give birth to triplets.
"It's been seven days since I put to bed, yet I have not seen my
husband. Several attempts to reach him through his telephone have
failed as he switched off his mobile phone.
"I know he has no job but that should not be the reason for him to
abandon me and the babies," she said of her husband of three years.
Odo appealed to the government and good spirited individuals to come
to the aid of the triplets, saying they required a lot of care to
survive having been born pre-term.
"I will be very grateful to all who offer financial help to me and my
babies at this difficult moment," she said.
