Nov 4th, 2013 – Paraga Seller Gives Birth To Baby Girl Inside Tricycle In Ikeja Lagos

Basirat Ogundeji, a 28-year old herbal concoction hawker, popularly known as Paraga seller, has been delivered of a baby girl inside a tricycle at Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.

P.M.NEWS gathered that Basirat went into labour when the bus she boarded at Ikeja on her way back home developed fault and was being repaired by the bus driver at a bus stop in Oregun.

It was learnt that when she could no longer bear the labour pains, Basirat quickly sought the assistance of a woman who was selling by the roadside.

Basirat, with the assistance of the woman, took a tricycle to Oregun Flagship Primary Health Centre but she gave birth while they were on the way to the clinic.

P.M.NEWS learnt the baby’s placenta was later removed by the nurses on her arrival at the clinic. The mother of two, while speaking with P.M NEWS on her hospital bed at Oregun Public Health Centre, said she came to Lagos after her boyfriend refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy.

“ I already had a child for somebody before I met the man that impregnated me at Aiyetoro, Ogun State. He said he loved me but when I told him I was pregnant, he gave me some money to abort the pregnancy and I decided to come to Lagos to make ends meet.

“I knew I was due for delivery that day but I had not bought anything for the baby yet. In fact I had no money on me that day and I decided to go and meet a woman at Ikeja who owes me.

“That morning I had to trek to Ojota, begged fo transport fare to Ikeja but unfortunately, I didn’t meet the woman and I was very confused. I begged for money again but could only raise N50.

“The bus I boarded from Ikeja enroute Ojota developed fault midway. We were at the bus stop when I felt a sharp pain in my tummy. Then I knew it was time for me to give birth,” she said.

She commended the management and staff of Oregun Public Health Centre for their hospitality and all the well meaning Nigerians that came to give her items for her baby.

“I never expected to get the kind of positive treatment they gave me here. They were all homely. The nurses were nice people and people have been coming in to donate gift items to the baby,” she said.

She added that once she’s discharged from the hospital, she would go back to her village in Ogun State, southwest Nigeria.
