A woman has given birth to a set of conjoined twins in a community in Keffi, Nasarawa state, sparking off some stir. Ochinya Onya Maria, a housewife, has delivered a set of thoraco-omphalos, conjoined twins.
 
Mrs. Onya, a native of Otukpo LGA of Benue State, and her husband, a painter welcomed the bundle of joy through a Caesarian section at the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, some days ago.
 
According to Dr. Mukhtar Yola, Chief Consultant Neontologist of the National Hospital, Abuja where the mother and her babies are currently admitted,
Quote
“Examination findings showed babies conjoined at the thorax and abdomen with a single umbilical cord. Other examination findings were normal. The current conjoined babies weight is 7.1h5kg. The babies were found to be conjoined with a ruptured omphalocele, which was repaired. The gram also showed separate skeletal bones including thoracic cavity. Babies are being worked upon for subsequent separation.”

 
Speaking exclusively with Daily Post on Monday morning, the young woman said the twins were her second issue in the marriage.
 
She said,
Quote
“This is my second issue. I am a house wife and my husband is a painter.
“For now, we need to raise funds to ensure their survival by a successful surgery to separate them. The doctors said the surgery would cost us N8m and we don’t even know where to raise the money from.
 
“We are calling on well-meaning Nigerians to come to our aid.”
