60-year-old Nigerian woman gives birth
A 60-year-old teacher in Lokoja, Kogi State on Wednesday, gave birth to a male child after several years of childlessness.
Christie, an Isoko woman from Delta, who is resident in Lokoja, was believed to be barren by her neighbours in Ganaja, a surbub in Lokoja, until she started developing a strange physique, associated with early pregnancy. The strange body development was later confirmed to be pregnancy by a medical doctor in one of the hospitals in the state.
The woman, who had been divorced by the estranged husband over her childlessness, threw a lavish party for friends and family members, to celebrate the miracle. Her house has also become a Mecca of sort, as people continue to troop into the place, not for merriment but to witness the wonder of God.
At the time of filing this report, the father of the child was not yet known to the public, as the teacher was said to be a divorcee. All effort to speak with her by our correspondent failed, as the celebrator was been held in the midst of her well-wishers and her relations.
But a man, Mr. Peter, who simply introduced himself as a neighbour to the new mother, said it was a very marvellous thing for a woman at her age, after menopause to be delivered of a baby.
Peter further disclosed that this has given hope to those who have never given birth, that they will one day receive the miracle.
