- Azeez welcomed the kids, all cute girls at the Daaru-Salam Hospital, Ilobu Irepodun local government area of Osun state
- He is asking public-spirited individuals to help him to care for the kids, especially in the absence of their mother
Azeez Tijani, an indigen of Osun state who welcomed triplets recently has asked for help to be able to care for the kids.
The request for help became necessary because Azeez's wife, Foluke, passed on after delivering the babies.
It was a normal birth
Lamina Kamludeen Omotoyosi who is the executive chairman of World Institute for Peace told Legit.ng that the babies were delivered on May 30 at the Daaru-Salam Hospital, Ilobu, Irepodun local government area of Osun state.

He said it was a normal birth but lamented that the mum passed on due to uncontrollable bleeding 7 days after on June 5, leaving the kids for the father. The family already had one kid before the triplets were born.
In an earlier Facebook post, an appeal was sent out to Governor Gboyega Oyetola to come to the aide of the family.
The post reads in part:
"Mr. Azeez Tijani received blessing of a set of triplet 7 days ago but unfortunately, Mrs. Foluke Azeez, the mother of the new born triplet gave up yesterday when the fruits of the womb clocked 6 days on earth.. Alas! This is so sad!"
He asked those who want to help the family in any way to call: +2349091154748.

In a related story, Legit.ng reported that a Nigerian NGO visited the family of Kabir Owoyemi and donated the sum of N1m to his triplets.
The NGO is identified as Givers Supportive Foundation and is well-known for such acts of great kindness to members of the public.
The organisation said it got wind of the situation in the Owoyemi family through a Facebook tag and had to do something to intervene.
Apart from the monetary donation, there were other goodies including some money for the opening of bank accounts for the children.
