Sunday Vanguard gathered that Onyenweife came to the market to make purchases when the baby’s head suddenly started coming out. She screamed for help and was later taken into a yet to be completed plaza where she was safely delivered of her baby.
Speaking at his residence, her husband, Mr. Dominic Onyenweife, said his wife, whose delivery date was due, according to the doctor’s report, was going to her bank’s branch at Eziukwu road, where she works, to take permission from her bosses ahead of her child’s delivery. “I thank God that the mother and the child are alive. I asked that the mother and the baby to be taken to any hospital for proper medical examination, but the nurses who were later called in certified her fit after administering some injections. I am going to take the full responsibility of training her to the university level and will also name this plaza after this baby,” Amadike said, at Onyenwife’s residence.
Speaking on the incident, some traders at the Cemetery Market, including Chief Cletus Obi, who witnessed the incident, said it was the first time such a thing would happen in the market.
