A nursing mother, Adenike Samuel and her three day old baby are presently been held in an hospital in Ibadan over inability to pay delivery bill of N300,000.

It was learnt that the nursing mother was reportedly discharged by Montana Medical Centre, Challenge Ibadan’ on Monday April 1, but was asked to stay back with the baby for not settling the delivery bill to the hospital, 

The nursing mother disclosed that her total delivery bill was N400,000 but that her husband, said to be an Okada rider, was only able to pay N100,000.

She stressed that Governor Seyi Makinde as well as other well meaning Nigerians should bail her and the three-day old baby out from the hospital by assisting in settling the remaining balance of N300,000.

“The bill amounted to that because I gave birth through Caesarian Section (CS). I am a tailor. I had two children already before this pregnancy came but I never knew I was pregnant until the scan which showed that l was carrying a baby”, she said 

The Nursing mother added” Anybody that is touched by our condition can reach and assist us through my account numbers: Eco Bank, 3880058997, Adenike Babalola, Opay 9042924437, Adenike Babalola. My telephone number is 09042924437.”

Husband of the nursing mother, Happiness Samuel, an ‘Okada’ rider from Cross Rivers State, said it would be extremely difficult for him to raise the remaining balance due to the economic challenges in the country.
