Man Needs N1.5m To Bail Wife, Triplets From Lagos Hospital

The birth of triplets is usually considered a blessing, but not for a petty trader, Shola Babalola, whose children and wife have remained in hospital since February 19.

Babalola, a recharge card vendor, needs N1,477,261 million to pay medical bills incurred during the birth of his triplets, as well as daily incubator and other treatments they received from birth till April 3, when they are expected to be discharged.

The man, who said he has spent the capital for his small scale business on medical bills at Ayodele Medical Centre, Iju Road, Fagba, Lagos, is appealing to good spirited Nigerians and the government to assist him so that he can take his family home.


He said: “I do not know what to do anymore. I don’t know how or where to raise the money. If I do not pay, my wife and children will not be released.

“She gave birth on February 19 to three children and they were put in the incubator. The bill for incubator is N7,500 per baby per day. Then, the hospital charged N450,000 for my wife’s (Folasade’s) surgery, out of which I’ve paid N361,000.

“But the bills have accumulated again and the total as at March 21 is N1,185,711. Where will I get that kind of money from? Already, I have spent the capital for our recharge card business to take care of them.

“I have been going to relatives and neighbours to seek support so that we can at least feed, but I am afraid because my family will not leave the hospital when they are discharged if I don’t pay the money.

“This is why I am begging Nigerians to help me. The triplets are our first children. The doctor said they may be discharged this week. I am desperate and helpless. Please, the hospital can be contacted for confirmation. You can see the bills of the babies prepared separately. Please rescue me.”

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
