A Nigerian woman who suffered for many years without a child has cried out after giving birth to five babies (quintuplets) and being detained at a hospital.
It was gathered that the woman, Mrs Abigail Musa, delivered five babies after 23 years of barrenness, but has been denied her freedom at the Fertile Ground Hospital, Zaramaganda Road, Jos, Plateau State, over an accumulated hospital bill of N3.7m.
According to a report by Punch, Abigail had been staying in the hospital for the past three and half months when the babies were born.
Also, two of the babies were said to have died.
Her husband, Mr Garba Musa, a pastor with the Church of Christ in Nations, told newsmen on Sunday that efforts to raise the bill and take his wife and the three surviving babies home had been abortive.
He said,
“My wife and the babies were discharged from the hospital about two days ago, but we could not go home due to the hospital bill.
“It’s really a big challenge, which we do not know how to handle because the outstanding money, which the doctor said must be paid before we leave, is N3.7m. This is just too much for us.”
