A Nigerian woman identified as Chika Anthonia Voghor who waited for the fruit of the womb for 18 good years has died three (3) days after delivering a set of twins at the Lily Hospital.
The deceased is said to have undergone a caesarian section just to deliver her twins (a boy and a girl) since a fibroid operation she once had prevents her from having a normal delivery but was really happy to be out of harm’s way as it went successfully.
However, tragedy struck when she later complained of having shortness of breath. A nurse who came to examine her realized that her pulse was very low. She quickly injected her and she became calm. 1O minutes later, she was turning her head and rubbing her chest. Before everybody knew what was happening, substance started coming out of her mouth.

She was taken back to the theatre after a scan revealed she suffers from internal bleeding. There, they decided to operate on her but she finally gave up the ghost after fighting so hard to stay alive.
A report by Nigerian Tribune sighted that the late Chika and her husband Ediri got married in 2002. They visited one hospital after the other when his wife failed to get pregnant. They were told the same old story “Nothing is wrong with the both of you”.
“From 2002, she didn’t get pregnant. During those years, we were everywhere looking for a solution. We went to different hospitals but the doctors said nothing was wrong with us. Over the years, fibroid was discovered and operated surgically. During the fibroid operation, there were no complications; everything went smoothly, still no child,” Mr. Voghor fought back tears.
Things however changed for the couple in 2019 when the doctor broke the news to them that Chika has taken seed only for this joyous moment to be shortlived.
Although the twins are currently under the care of the elder sister of the deceased, nurturing them has thus become a daunting challenge. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
