Mr Adewale Omole, a bricklayer took to his heels and abandoned his wife after finding out she was expecting triplets.
The man did not even wait for her to deliver the babies before he disappeared.
The mother of two, Abosede who gave birth to the triplets on Friday at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH)., Ekiti state narrated her story:
“My husband abandoned me even before I gave birth and he has refused to perform his responsibility as father. He left me without food. That is why I had to relocate to this spiritual home where I have received spiritual succour and financial assistance. Since the sudden disappearance of my husband, life has not been the same again, as I, the two children and the newly born triplets are finding it difficult to survive. I am begging him to come back for the sake of these innocent babies,” she pleaded.
Abosede also appealed to the Governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi and well meaning Nigerians to assist her.
The Matron in-charge of the maternity at EKSUTH, Mrs Adenike Oluyide who confirmed the story called on well wishers to assist Abosede, as the triplets are currently at the Special Baby Care Unit of the hospital.
A member of Sabbath Mission Church, Omiolori, Okesa, Ado-Ekiti, who came to the hospital to see the woman and her children, confirmed that Abosede came to the church and was taken to the hospital.
The church member, who pleaded anonymity, said the leadership of the congregation felt she could benefit from the free medical programme of Ekiti State Government for women and children.
