The father of three sets of twins who fled from his home at Agege in Lagos, and expectant wife has shown up – three months after.
Mr. Emeka Uche(pictured) returned on Wednesday to a new home, a mini-flat that was given to the family at an Ogun State outskirt by a good Samaritan, The Nation reports.
The paper reported that in an interview the father-of-six granted its reporter, he spoke on where he had been in the last three months and his state of mind.
His word: “Like I told you on phone, it was not easy for me. I contemplated suicide on several occasions. I cannot believe I am here, holding my kids for the first time since they were born three months ago.
“When I left, I initially went to the village where I spent a month. After that, I came back to Lagos but stayed with my friend around Oko-Oba in Agege. I still live with him.
“I know that I was not far from them, but I just did not went to return without a better solution on how to cater for my home. I was ashamed too to come back to that house to see them after I’d abandoned them and run away.
“But after our discussions and my wife told me that they had moved, I went to our old house and asked one of the neighbors who had been here for direction so that I could come and see them.”
