Sorrow now abounds in a family in Katsina state, as their Siamese twins died months after delivery.
The Siamese twins who were conjoined at the stomach, a predicament that had the family seeking for financial assistance from the public for a surgery to separate them, died by 2.00pm on Friday. Here are photos of the twins below;
This is coming few months after it was reported that a team of Nigerian doctors, successfully separated a set of conjoined twins at University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Gwagwalada.
The doctors led by Dr Nuhu Kwajafa of the Global Peace Initiatives, confirmed the success of the operation that took them many hours in a post on his Instagram account @nuhukwaj. Dr. Kwajafa said the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, footed the bill.
“We wish to express our profound gratitude, as we say a massive thank you to Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara, for his kind hearted and extremely generous gesture to the successfully separated twins and their family…God bless you Sir”, Dr Kwajafa posted.
