In the wake of the economic hardship in Nigeria, Mr Matthew Udekwe couldn’t believe his eyes when his wife delivered a set of triplets that he had to run away.
According to Punchng,Mrs. Isi Udekwe, 35 is pleading with that her husband to come home because the children needs the love of their father.
It was gathered that Udekwe, who hail from Enugu State, abandoned his family home on Eke Street, off St. Saviour Road in Ikpoba-Okha LGA of Edo State, when he discovered that his wife had given birth to a second set of multiple births.
The triplets, who are now nine months old, had not felt their father’s love because their father had already informed their mother said that he would not be able to cater for the family if she had multiple births, a warning she said she took for a joke.
The 35-year-old Mrs. Udekwe said she was shocked when Matthew failed to show up when she announced their birth. She said: “He congratulated me. But since then, I have not seen him.”
Isi, who was a food vendor, lamented that things had been difficult for her. In a letter addressed to the Deputy Governor of Edo State, she appealed for the assistance of the Edo State Government, adding that she would not like to give her children out for adoption or let them die of starvation.
