An Nkpor based business man, Mr Sampson Ekene Okeke, Idemili North Local Government Area, Anambra State, yesterday told newsmen how he asked God to bless him with at least a son having gotten four girls without a son.
His words, “when my wife, Esther, became pregnant all I know is that she is as usual pregnant until the medical director of Kanayo Specialist Hospital, Onitsha, told me that she is having a twin but I don’t know they are up to this number, three boys and a girl”.
“I now have eight of them, three boys and five girls. The lord has answered my prayers.
Appealing for financial assistance from Governor Peter Obi and good spirited Nigerians he said, “children are owned by everybody once they are out from the womb”.
Two of the quadruplets weigh 2.5kg while the other two weigh 2.2kg.
Meanwhile, a group of prayer warriors, St. Paul main group from St. Peters Anglican church, Nkpor, led by Prince Kenneth Madu Akwasa had embarked on constant prayers for the protection of the quadruplets and their parents.
Mr Akwasa who was flanked by the vicar, Rev Ndubuisi Amaechina, catechist-Ugo O, Christopher Ogham and secretary, Sam Ogu, donated undisclosed sum of money and two dozens of pampas to the quadruplets.
