An unnamed woman has been delivered of her baby inside a tricycle, otherwise called ‘Keke napep’ on New Year Day.
The Punch reports that due to the absence of health workers in the clinic she was taken to in Enugu state, she did not have access to good facilities for the safe delivery of her infant.
But, a good Samaritan, who is a medical doctor, was said to have taken delivery of the baby inside the tricycle without any form of complications.
Mr Fred Eteke, who shared this news on his Facebook wall, wrote: “Happening now…. God is wonderful…God is wonderful. On my way to see my mother-in-law with my family this evening, my sister-in-law whose family house is directly opposite the Local Government Area health centre (Iji Nike Cottage Hospital, near Enugu East Development Centre, Nkwo Nike) flagged us down (we didn’t plan to stop by).
“Few minutes later, a young man in his late twenties ran in panting …. ‘My wife is in labour in that health centre and there is nobody there.’ In less than five minutes a mobile hospital was setup in the keke that brought in the woman. To the glory of God, my wife, who is a doctor, delivered the woman of a bouncing baby boy at 6:30pm 01/01/2016. My sisters-in-law turned nurses instantly and the touchlight in my phone provided the lighting. Thank you Lord.”
Nigerians have since thanked God for the woman’s safe delivery and also spared some words of gratitude to the doctor who put up the make-shift hospital for the baby’s safe arrival.
