One Mrs Johnson Gloria has narrated how her husband, Mr Martin Nwosu, disappeared from home and abandoned her when she was at the verge of delivering a set of twins.
Gloria, resident in one of the suburbs in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, said her husband packed out of the house owing to his inability to live up to his financial responsibility, including failure to pay his rent.
According to her, the whole scenario started when her husband told her to abort the pregnancy, saying that he did not want to have more babies, but she refused to abort the pregnancy.
“He used to give me N1,000, but he cut it down to N500, and I have a son for him already. Anytime I complained to him that the money was small, he would tell me that there was no work.
“In the long run, he stopped coming back to the house after work, and whenever I asked him why he didn’t come back to the house, he would tell me that he had no transport money.
“We are owing the landlord, my husband said I should bring money, I told him that I didn’t have money because I fried akara and yam, he would become angry and said that I would get tired of the house, then he packed all his property and left the house.
“When I was in labour, friends and neighbours of my husband tried getting across to him by phone to come and take me to the hospital, but he refused to come, until one of the neighbours took me to Asokoro General Hospital, Abuja.
“The hospital refused to take me in because I didn’t register with them. I was taken to another private hospital where I was also rejected. I delivered my babies at another hospital in Abuja that accepted me because I was in serious pains,” Gloria, who hails from Abak Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State added.
“Throughout that period, I was calling my husband’s number but he switched off his phone. I delivered the twins by Cesarean Session (CS) and I lost a lot blood. I can’t feed them and I can’t pay the N150, 000 hospital bill,” Gloria sobbed.
