A young Fulani woman from SabonIceh Village in Kagarko, Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State has given birth to a baby whose face and legs closely resemble that of a monkey.
The strange delivery, which happened on Monday morning at the General hospital Kagarko did not come easy for the poor woman who was in labour for several hours.
Orijoreporter was told that the woman on arrival at the hospital at around 7.30am was immediately taken to the labour room.
According to one of the nurses, who attended to her: “The woman came in through the out-patient department (OPD) after seeing the doctor on call, and I decided to rupture her because the cervix was fully dilated. After I ruptured her, fluid measuring about 26 litres gushed out after which she started bleeding. All this time, the baby was still in the womb.
“When the bleeding persisted, I sent for the medical director and when she came, we went into the theatre to operate on the woman. In the process, the baby started coming out with the legs. So, the medical director asked me to stop and allow her to deliver the baby by herself.
Speaking further, the nurse said, “She delivered the baby breech and when it came out, we discovered that it was an abnormal baby. It was half human and half animal. We lost the baby shortly after delivery.
The nurse who spoke on condition of anonymity said the baby weighed four kilograms which is healthy but its legs and ears were like those of a monkey, adding that the mother of the baby is currently receiving treatment at the hospital.
“She lost a lot of blood so we have to give her blood,” the nurse added.
