July 10, 2015 – Picture: Another Father Of Twins & Triplet In Lagos Needs Financial Help To Raise Children

Mr. and Mrs. Malaki Egwilo are both happy and sad. They were grateful to God when He blessed them with three healthy babies in one day, but taking care of them is causing the poor couple some nagging headache.

They had two children previously and were hoping to add just one more and then say goodbye to child bearing. But fate has decided otherwise.

Their predicament was further deepened after the babies were delivered through a cesarean section. They are not only faced with the burden of raising the children; the Egwilo’s are also indebted to the hospital that took the delivery – Surgicare Consult, Ibara Estate, Ota, Ogun State.

The woman who studied Linguistics at the university, graduated in 2010. Sadly for her, she has not been able to secure a job till date. Her husband’s salary as a teacher in a small private school could hardly put food on the family’s table.

Mrs. Egwilo who hails from Ora Ukwu town in Idemili Local Government Area of Anambra, told our reporters that she felt good to give birth to triplets, but regretted that the task of taking care of them is fast turning her joy to sorrow.

The nursing mother said she never dreamt of having triplets, but most often her pregnancy scan showed that there were two babies in her womb. Therefore, in their own little way, they had hurriedly prepared for the arrival of twins but never expected that the delivery would be through caesarian section.

The 33-year-mother of five is willing to take any appointment offered to her, for the sake of her children, so that she can complement her husband’s effort to adequately take care of their five children.
Since she bagged a degree from the university, she said she has searched for jobs from one organisation to the other without any luck. She called on well meaning Nigerians to come to her aid and rescue her from her present predicament.

Her husband, Mr. Egwilo said he was dazed when he received the news of the arrival of three additional children. He said he later accepted the reality and resolved to face his new status as a father of five kids.
He said his situation now makes him understand better why some men run away when their wives are delivered of twins or triplets. The teacher stated that the responsibility of taking care of even one baby at a time was enormous.

“In those days, when I heard the news that a woman gave birth to triplets and the husband ran away, I would be angry. I would ask, why should a man run away because his wife gave birth? I now know how it feels because the demand is very high.”

The hospital alone will demand for so many things which will make the man run away or even collapse if he does not have a heart. But for me, I cannot run away because it is not my wife’s fault.

So, I can’t leave her to bear the pain alone. I am pleading with well-meaning Nigerians to assist us,” he said.

The family can be reached on 07038611282 and 08063854659.

      Why are you such an idiot Stanley? I wonder how many kids your parents have because you’re obv a mistake to humanity. Can’t you read? They had two, wanted one more, and got three. If you have nothing good to say, shut up and save your soul

    When Ruth Uche got assisted by the Lagos State Government I almost was saying the State must be careful with the kind of publicity surounding the Ruth Uche’s problems else it backfired on them. The people of the East that Nigerians are dealing with take undue advantage of every “misfortune” in life to make money. Question is, why did Malaki Egwilo wait until Ruth Uche got sympathy from the public before coming out to state their own case.? The Egwilo’s case I suspect is a 419 gimmick to fliece the unsuspecting public. They are unable to come face the public physically but rather provided telephone numbers to be contacted. Pictorial images provided as evidence seem was caprured in the 1960s. There are millions of such cases of multiple twin births cut across the lenght and breath of Nigeria and across tribal lines, no other tribe even from the impoverished zones of Nigeria tries to do the disgraceful thing the Igbos are engaged in. Eventhough Ruth Uche has a genuine case, we must not forget the decieful and criminal anticedents of the people from her Eastern zone and their fraudulent characteristics. There comes a time in life when shameful acts becomes so disgraceful it calls for a halt, are there not multiple twin births from other tribes from everywhere else and why are Easterners so fraudulent minded as to try making money out of every misfortune in life, where are their Eastern home State Governments and the hordes of their compatriot traders in Lagos who all claim economic self reliance.? The Egwilos must come out in the open as done the Ruth Uches so the public can assess them by what they see and not the posting of fraudulent decades old pictures meant to decieve the people.

    People will be coming out of the woods now to seek for help. If you know you can not afford to take care of a baby, why make one? Why not use condom when having sex or let you wife calculate when she is fertile or not. Why are some people not ashamed to come out in the newspapers asking for somebody to help them train their children? Though children are of God but those procreating should use common sense.

    U should not judge anybody…it could be you…how would they ve known it was going to be triplets…you can never say..afterall there cases where the scan shows a single baby then after giving birth then will the couples get to knw its 2 or more..u pple should not just judge..its nt their wish…nd morever what will u say if they had left the children in a place where noone will see them or throw them away but they didnt do that because they are not cruel..i feel for them..its not easy to bring up just a kid rather still 5…with a low income earning work…God help them

    U all saying that they don’t have sense or something, are u God or Allah? For once think with your brain. God has a reason for everything. And moreover technology is not 100% accurate and this is to say that man and technology can be predicted n fail but God Almighty cannot fail. So rather than criticizing this couple, encourage them in anyway you can even if it means giving them a well paid legal job to do. Thank you.
