I have only read or seen it happening in the western world as reported in newspapers and televisions, but never imagined it was coming to my domain.” Those were the only words Mr. Musa Andrew could mutter while standing perplexed and resting on the wall of Saint Daniels Hospital, Otukpo.
The Proprietor of Saint Daniels Hospital Otukpo, Dr. M.O. Daniel disclosed that the Siamese twin have four hands, three legs, two heads, two chests, two noses and possess the same pelvic girdle but joined together at the abdominal region with a shared female organ, with one having a healthy nutrient of surviving than the other. Dr. Daniel further disclosed that the twins were eating well but it would be semblance situation if the parents were not kin at their treatment because it would require high-tech surgical operation outside Benue State.
The parents were also told that a lot of medical skills, energies and prayers were the only way out. “I have been encouraging and counseling the parents not to be discouraged or feel bad because these are living beings created and designed by Almighty God”, he added.
Dr. Daniel and the parents of the children are calling on the government, philanthropists, well-wishers, non-governmental organizations, motherless baby homes, Pastors, Imams and all well-meaning Nigerians to help them save the lives of their children.
