“I am a secondary school teacher while my husband Christopher, is a driver. I and my babies are being detained by the hospital because the bills have not been paid,” she said.

The 46-year-old woman said she got married in 2010 but was unable to take in. The excited mother added that “on Sunday, a good Samaritan cleared the bill for the babies amounting to ₦600,000.

“I have been discharged but cannot afford my bill of over ₦40,000 because I don’t have the money.

“Aside the bills, we are still owing for the items we bought in the hospital like diapers and baby milk as the children consume a lot of it,” she explained.

While thanking the hospital for assisting her in delivering the babies, Mamah said, “I am appealing to Nigerians to come to my help so that we can go back home.
