Man absconds from home as wife gives birth to triplets

The mother and the triplets are still at the hospital.
Nov. 6 (PREMIUM TIMES) – A 33-year-old mechanic, Yemi Oyeniyi, fled his matrimonial home in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on hearing that his wife was pregnant with triplets.

The couple had two children before the triplets, born on October 29.

The mother, Esther Oyeniyi, told PREMIUM TIMES, on her hospital bed, with the triplets beside her, that her hubby left home since the scan result on June 3 which showed she had three babies inside her.

Mrs. Oyeniyi, 27, a teacher at the Bello Nursery and Primary School, Mokola, Abeokuta, said the sudden disappearance of her husband was worrisome, and she had to relocate to a church, the Sacred Order of Cherubum and Seraphim Church, located at Okeyidi in Abeokuta, for care.

She said it was from the church that she was brought to the State Hospital, Ijaiye, Abeokuta for admittance on October 19, where she put to bed on October 29.

The mother of the triplets lamented that since the hubby left their Okeyidi matrimonial home, his mobile phone has also been unreachable. She said her husband’s family resides in Iganna town of Oyo State.

The naming ceremony of the triplets, all female, took place at the hospital on Monday. Mrs. Oyeniyi said neither her husband nor any member of his family showed up at the naming ceremony.

The worried mother appealed to her runaway hubby, wherever he may be, to come out,” and be part of the joy of the God given babies.”
