A 33-year-old mechanic, Mr. Yemi Oyeniyi, fled his matrimonial home in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, following a scan revelation that his wife was carrying a set of triplets.
The mechanic’s wife, Mrs. Esther Oyeniyi, told the News Agency of Nigeria that her five year-old marriage had earlier produced two children.
She said that her husband absconded since June 3, 2012 when the result of the scan revealed that she was carrying the triplets.
She described the disappearance of her husband as worrisome, saying that the development had forced her to relocate to Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Oke Yidi in the metropolis.
Esther also said that the church members brought her to the state Hospital, Ijaiye, on October 19 and that she was delivered of the triplets on October 29.
She said she could no longer reach her husband on the phone, adding that her husband is from Iganna town in Oyo State.
She said further that the naming ceremony of the three female triplets, organised by the church, took place on the premises of the hospital on November 5.
The triplets’ mother appealed to her husband as well as his relations to come to her aid.
Esther said, “If he can’t come, I want to beg his family members to come to my aid; this is just too much for me to bear alone.
“I teach in a private primary school with a meagre salary. I obviously can’t cope without assistance now.”
