A 24-year-old woman, Abibat Kehinde, has been abandoned at Epe General Hospital, Lagos State, over N131,000 unpaid bills, three months after she gave birth to twins at the hospital.
Kehinde told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Epe that her husband absconded after delivery on March 21, without paying the bills to facilitate her discharge from the hospital.
“My husband is a commercial motorcycle rider.
“He absconded since I gave birth to the twins on March 21.
“I wasn’t ready for the second child before but God knows best, ” she said.
The mother of twins said that she lacked sufficient food to eat while the babies also lacked basic nutrients since her abandonment three months ago.
“My husband said that he couldn’t afford to feed one child, not to talk of feeding two children with their mother; and he complained about the huge hospital bill before he left.“Since he left the hospital, he has not returned to check on me and the children till date. He abadoned us in the hospital and absconded, ” Kehinde said. (Sun)
