|After waiting for 18 years, woman dies three days after welcoming a set of twins by Chigozie(m): Sat Aug 2020 08:38am|
A Nigerian woman who was in search of a child for eighteen years has died three days after she welcomed a set of twins.
Mrs Chika Anthonia Voghor, an indigene of Umunachi Mmukoro in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State, was married to her husband, Ediri Voghor, an Urhobo man from Delta state, for eighteen years and waited to have their own children. Fate smiled on her when she confirmed she was pregnant last year. In June, Mrs Voghor, welcomed a set of twins (boy and girl). Their joy was however shortlived as she died three days after.
Speaking in an interview with Tribune, the devastated husband who is a patent medicine seller, said
“We had our traditional wedding in 2002 and had our church wedding in 2003 at the St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Warri. From 2002, she didn’t get pregnant. During those years, we were everywhere looking for a solution. We went to different hospitals but the doctors said nothing was wrong with us. Over the years, fibroid was discovered and operated surgically. During the fibroid operation, there were no complications; everything went smoothly, still no child.
Pressures were coming from everywhere; gossips and indirect mocking, but we held on to our faith in God. In fact, pressures helped to strengthen her faith in God. She so much believed in God. She laid all her hope in God Almighty that one day, God would bless her with children,” Mr Voghor disclosed.
Speaking further, Mr Voghor said
“One-day last year, she told me she was down with fever and had also missed her monthly flow; we went to the hospital for a test and it came out positive! We were very happy but we kept the news to ourselves. We didn’t want people to hear it from our mouths. Pregnancy is not something hidden, no matter how much you try to hide it, it will surely show one day. So, we wanted people to know by seeing it. From there, we registered for antenatal at Lily Hospital. It was in that hospital that we did a scan, and the scan showed she was carrying a baby. Oh God! I was beside myself with joy! I cannot explain the feeling I had. The joy was so much that I shed tears of joy''.
Mr Voghor said on June 21, his wife’s pregnancy became nine months old and they went to the hospital for her delivery. The doctors opted for Caesarian operation because of the past Fibroid operation she had done. She had the operation done and the babies, a boy and a girl were successfully delivered. Mr Voghor said his wife was in high spirit all through the first two days.
