Mentally Challenged Woman Gives Birth to Twins at Eku Junction


A female lunatic on Wednesday at the busy Eku junction in

Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State gave

birth to a set of male and female twins with the assistance

of concerned female citizens in the area.

It was gathered that the lunatic who is a regular face in the

community, normally solicit for alms from street to street

and sleeps at any available shelter within around the


Recounting the delivery process, Beatrice Ejeta, a staff of

Shepherd Care International Orphanage home, stated that

she was at home when the proprietor of the orphanage

home called her and others that a mad woman at the Eku

junction was in labour.

According to her, “I was initially worried if she would

comply with us trying to assist her but when I signaled her

to come with my hand, she responded. With the assistance

of some female shop owners around the junction, we were

able to hold her still and I coordinated the delivery with the

male twin coming out leg first.

“We were delighted when the first baby came out thinking

that was all and released our grip on her only for us to

notice that as she trekked to an adjourning junction,

another baby was coming out. Immediately, we ran back to

her and delivered her of the second child which was a girl.”

Though a community source disclosed that nobody has

claimed responsibility for her pregnancy, the source stated

that the babies were taken to the Eku Baptist Government

hospital for medical attention.

Confirming the presence of the babies in the hospital, the

Public Relation Officer, PRO of Eku Baptist Government

hospital, Mr. Sagay Tuoyo stated that though he has not

been fully briefed on the matter, the hospital is equipped

with facilities to handle the immediate demands and

challenges of the babies.
