November 13, 2016 – Mother Of Nigerian Baby Born Without Genitals, Anus Baptises Her In Onitsha Catholic Church, Names Her Mary

Mother of the ill fated new born baby that was widely reported in the media who was born without genitals and anus with the intestine bulging out on the surface of the body has taken the baby for baptism in a Catholic Church in Onitsha. The baby was christened Mary Cynthia Odinakachukwu(one in the hands of God).

A follow -up on the complicated medical condition of the baby in their residence at No 9b Old Hospital Rd,Onitsha shows that mother and child are in great distress in their one room apartment while three of her normal children have stopped going to school due to the heavy financial burden placed on them by the baby.

The mother, Mrs Ibeh said that contrary to advise from people to discard the baby, she had no moral right to do so since the baby was the creation of God who gives and takes as He wishes.

She said she decided to baptize the baby as a normal child and live the rest to God and for kind spirited Nigerians to assist her financially to raise funds for some of the expensive medical tests, brain scan and surgery.

Mrs Ibeh whose petty trading business has completely collapsed appealed to kind hearted individuals and charitable organisations to assist her financially by donating generously towards the treatment and welfare of the child and above all remember the entire family in their prayers.

The mother of child who hails from Agulu in Anaocha local Government of Anambra State said her husband is from Enugu State and does menial jobs.

She thanked the various media houses and social media blogs for reporting the matter and sensitizing the public about the situation.

It would be recalled that the ill fated baby was delivered recently in a hospital in Onitsha through Caesarean section.

At the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital,Nnewi where the case was referred to, the doctors opened up part of the baby’s abdomen to eliminate waste and thereafter discharged them after some weeks of inability to settle their huge financial bill.

The question regarding the actual sex of the baby has remained a dilemma.

The couple and child were then left in the cold, completely stranded and desperately in need of money to continue with the treatment of the child hence the appeal for financial aid from kind spirited people.
