Woman Dies Alongside Her Twin Babies During Delivery On Lagos Street


A woman identified as Bunmi Muri, has been reported dead around a park on Ogooluwa Street, in the Oko Oshodi area of Bariga, Lagos State.

Information gathered revealed that the woman died along with her twin babies during delivery.

It was reported that Bunmi was on her way to visit her husband when she went into labour and some residents took her to a corner to have the babies.

The 35-year-old, however, died alongside the twin babies.

A resident, Felix Chidi, noted that woman was successfully delivered of one of the babies and died while attempting to deliver the second baby.

He said, “From what we gathered, she was going to collect something from her husband who worked in a park. But on her way there, she went into labour and was taken to a corner to deliver the babies. She was delivered of the first baby, but died while giving birth to the second baby. The deaths happened because there was no experienced medical practitioner to deliver the babies.”

Their corpses were were removed by the Lagos State Ambulance Service and deposited at the Yaba General Hospital.
