A woman who works as a cleaner with Zenith Bank in Aba, Abia State, Mrs. Dominic Onyenweife, miraculously delivered a baby girl at the popular Cemetery/Eziukwu market, without the assistance of medical personnel, The Nation reports.
Mr. Samuel Amadike, the owner of the yet-to-be completed 5 storey plaza where Onyenweife delivered the baby, has now offered to sponsor the education of the baby to university level.
Amadike described the birth of the child as good omen to his family. He wondered what the story could have been if the mother or the child had lost their lives during labour. He also said he will name the plaza after the baby.
Husband of the new mother, Mr. Dominic Onyenweife, said his wife whose delivery date was due, was on her way to Zenith Bank, to take permission from her bosses, ahead of her child’s delivery.
Mrs. Onyenweife said she was inside a commercial tricycle to her office when she had some sensation. Before she noticed what was happening, she said the baby’s head had started coming out.
She said she screamed for help and was taken to the plaza where she delivered the baby under the staircase, with little or no assistance. Some nurses were later called and they certified her fit after administering her some injections.
