Father of three girls, Mr Sampson Ekene Okeke, asked God to give him a baby boy, but instead his wife Esther delivered four healthy babies in Nkpor, Idemmili North local government area Anambra state.
Nkpor based business man, Mr Okeke, said that when his wife became pregnant, the medical director of Kanayo Specialist Hospital, Onitsha, told him that his wife is having twins. But his wife gave birth to three boys and a girl. Now they have seven children, three boys and four girls.
Mr Okeke appealed for financial assistance from Governor Peter Obi and good spirited Nigerians saying the burden is much for him.
Two of the quadruplets weighed 2.5kg while the other two weighed 2.2kg.
A group of prayer warriors, known as St. Paul main group from St. Peters Anglican church, Nkpor, led by Prince Kenneth Madu Akwasa have embarked on intensive prayers for the protection of the quadruplets and their parents as well as God’s provision for them.
Mr Akwasa who visited the hospital led by the vicar, Rev Ndubuisi Amaechina, Catechist-Ugo O, Christopher Ogham and Secretary, Sam Ogu, donated undisclosed sum of money and two dozens of pampas to the quadruplets.
