19-year-old Zainabu Dahiru gave birth to the baby with two heads which also had no eyes on Sunday, the General Hospital, Malumfashi, Katsina State.
I actually wondered for a minute how that baby was born..... BUT The baby’s father, Malam Dahiru Umar, a 25-year-old petty trader, told NAN on Tuesday that the baby was born through normal delivery and also confirmed the baby was their first and his wife attended regular ante-natal care during pregnancy.
He said he cried on sighting the baby and sympathetic hospital workers told him that they could not offer any medical assistance beside the delivery.

Umar appealed to government, wealthy individuals and non-governmental organisations for support.
Meanwhile, effort to speak with Medical Director of the General Hospital failed. However,
A paediatrician, Dr Ahmad Bala, who spoke to NAN, said the baby needed maximum medical examination to ascertain the nature of the abnormalities.
