- A tricycle rider has been blessed with five beautiful babies
- The tricycle rider and his wife welcomed their quintuplets in Anambra state
- They welcomed four male children and one female child
Abuchi Odoh, a commercial tricyclist popularly known as keke napep rider, has welcomed five bouncing babies with his wife Ndidi. The couple welcomed their babies on Thursday, July 26.
The 30-year-old wife who is a seamstress delivered four male children and one female child through cesarean surgery at God's Mercy Maternity Home in Obiuno Otolo, Nnewi area of Anambra state.
It was gathered that the couple already had three girls who were born in single births and a set of male triplets. Two of the triplets boys had sadly passed away three months after were brought into the world.
According to the husband who reacted to the news of the newborn babies, he never hoped for quintuplets due to the fact that he was struggling to feed his family.
The 40-year-old keke napep driver revealed that he had considered the possibility of running away from the responsibility of taking care of them. He noted that running away was not because he did not appreciate the blessing.
He further added that he wanted to run becuase he did bnot know where to start raising them from.
Odoh said: “I’m a Keke NAPEP rider. The keke is my own but it is very old. I never expected that my wife would deliver quintuplets. In fact, I was expecting one baby and that was my prayer. I don’t have means to take care of one in addition to the number we have already let alone additional five babies at a go. I’m shocked.
This is over blessing. I wanted to run away yesterday but people held me back not because I am not happy for the gift of the babies but because I have nothing to take care of them.”
The 40-year-old father called on Anambra state government and the people of Anambra to come to his rescue.
Meanwhile, Blessing Odoemena, the nurse who delivered the babies said: "When she was delivered of the triplets of three male children I celebrated that with them and even planned to hang their picture in my office. But when two of the triplets died it was very painful to the family and me too. I challenged God to prove Himself as the God of impossibilities and the family was surprised with this package of quintuplets. And the babies are very healthy, eating well.”
