By Chuks Ekpeneru

A Zaria based woman, Hauwa’u Sulaiman, of No. 70 Alfadarai in Zaria has given birth to a set of quadruplets. One of the quadruplet however died.

The 34-year-old housewife previously had fourteen children now making her children sixteen.

She gave birth to the quadruplets at the  Gambo Sawaba General Hospital, Zaria, on Friday, June 5.

Sulaiman said the recent delivery was her eighth.

The mother and the babies were transferred to the  Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) for better care after she had been delivered of her latest pregnancy.

Sulaiman, however, said that the only male among the quadruplets died before they arrived ABUTH.

She said that the remaining three infants had been placed under observation at the pediatrics care unit and she (the mother) had been receiving medical care at the maternity ward.

She said that she received two bags of blood during the delivery processes.

“I am very healthy and strong but  the medical experts advised that I need to be monitored very well before they can discharge me,’’ she said.

Her husband, Malam Sulaiman Mohammed, also said that his wife had  twice in the past   given birth to a set of triplets; a set of twins two times, and given birth to three babies at different times before  the quadruplet.

Mohammed, a driver, expressed gratitude to Allah for the wonderful gift of the babies.

He added that it was his senior brother that was assisting him with the children whenever such needs arose.

Similarly, his mother , Saudatu Haruna; said  that the birth of the quadruplets was not a surprise to them attributing it to inheritance, adding that she gave birth to a set of twins at three different occasions.

Haruna added that her mother was a triplet and her father was a twin stressing that the quadruplet were  not coming  to the family as a surprise to her.

Dr Isa Abdulkadir,  the leading Consultant in the Pediatrics unit at ABUTH, said that  the babies were in good condition.
