A couple in Benin, the Edo state capital, have welcomed a set of quadruplets in addition to their six children.
Speaking with Legit TV, the husband identified as Austin Ohenhen said he ran away for a while after hearing the news.
According to Austin, he returned home after words of encouragement from friends and family.
Also speaking, the new mum said when she was pregnant, she contemplated abortion but there was no money to go ahead with it.
The 35-year-old mother-of-ten said since the arrival of the quadruplets, God has been blessing the family.
She, however, called on Nigerians to come to their rescue as she and her husband are currently unemployed and need assistance in taking care of the babies.
According to the new mum, she got married to her husband in 2005 and planned to give birth to four children.
In similar news, Peter Ejiofor, the deputy editor-in-chief of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), and his wife Anastasia, have sought the help of fellow countrymen in taking care of their quadruplets who clocked three years in 2020.
Ejiofor, who would be retiring in 2021, said taking care of the kids has not been easy but friends and family have been assisting.
According to him, the quadruplets arrived seven years after marriage. Ejiofor described their birth as a miracle.
In his words:
“It is not easy to raise even twins, but we thank God for family members and friends who have been contributing for their upkeep."
