A baby that was claimed by three women of being theirs has graduated from the higher institution and will soon be proceeding for her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
The girl was dubbed miracle baby in 1995 after three women claimed they were her biological mothers.
In 1995, a woman in her mid-60s (mother 1) named Alhaja Wuraola Abayomi, appeared with the baby on Newsline, a programme on NTA, to claim she gave birth in her old age.
While watching the show, another woman identified as Folashade Adeyemi (mother 2) suspected that the child was hers, Expressive Information reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Folashade said she saw Alhaja in the hospital when she went to deliver her twins, adding that she was not pregnant at the time.
She lost the twins but was not allowed to see their remains despite asking the midwife, Esther Kubari, to allow her see their bodies.
Folashade took the matter to the public domain and an investigation commenced. This was when mother 3 surfaced, a woman named Kikelomo Obikoya.
Kikelomo said she had a baby but the same midwife told her that the baby had died.
Tests finally revealed that mother 3 was the biological mother of the baby, now known as Mary Obikoya.
Mother 2 refused the test results and went to court, which necessitated other tests that corroborated the first set of tests.
Investigation revealed that the baby was born in December 1994 and was sold in 1995.
After a Twitter user asked about Mary, Dabiri-Erewa disclosed that she just graduated from the higher institution on her scholarship and will be proceeding for her NYSC.
Legit.ng previously reported that two women with one of them identified as Kate Ugwu were arrested in Igbo-eze local government area of Enugu state after allegedly selling a two-day-old baby for N300,000.
It was gathered that the suspects were on their way to drop off the baby whose mother was reported to be a 13-year-old when they were apprehended.
