There was pandemonium on Wednesday at a section of Mile 4 axis of Port Harcourt, as a housewife gave birth to two padlocks. The strange twin objects were delivered in the early hours of the day.
Although facts of the unusual delivery remained sketchy as at press time, it was gathered that the ‘mother’ and the padlocks had been taken to an undisclosed church for prayers.
Sources told Daily Sun that the expected joy of a mother and her husband turned to overwhelming pain and embarrassment when after a protracted labour, the woman delivered the two strange objects. After the initial shock and confusion, the husband of the woman (name withheld) was said to have contacted the leadership of his Pentecostal church for spiritual advice.
Consequently, the housewife and the strange objects were later taken to the church where the general overseer was said to be praying for her. When contacted, at their Chief Amadi Street, Mile 4 residence, the woman’s husband who identified himself simply as (name withheld) confirmed the incident. He told Daily Sun that his wife had been taken to the church and declined further comments, promising to give details later.
Expectedly, curious visitors had besieged the home of the couple when Daily Sun visited the area. It was gathered that the woman had been pregnant for 15 years. Family source told Daily Sun that her problem started after the woman, a graduate of Geography, gave money to a close relation who was in dire need of help.
