Woman Pregnant With Twins, Babies Die During Delivery On Lagos Street



A 35-year-old woman identified as Mrs Bunmi Muri has died while delivering twins on the street in Bariga, Lagos.

The twin babies also died in the incident that occurred at Ogooluwa Street, in the Oke Oshodi area.

Heavily-pregnant Muri was said to be on her way to meet her husband who works on Ogo-Oluwa Street when she suddenly went into labour.

Good Samaritans immediately took her to a corner of the street so she could deliver.

However, the victim and her babies died in the process.

A resident, Felix Chidi, revealed that one of the babies was successfully delivered before the lady died.

He lamented that the pregnant woman would not have died if there was an experienced medical personnel on ground.

The Bariga Police Division and Lagos State Ambulance Service were said to have been contacted shortly after the incident occurred.

Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Command spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi said, “It was a case of sudden and unnatural death. On October 18, 2020, around 8.30am, information received at the Bariga Divisional Police Headquarters was that one Mrs Bunmi Muri, 35, died after delivering her first baby, a girl, on the street corner of Ogooluwa Street, near Oke Oshodi Park, Bariga. She was not able to deliver the second baby, who also died.

“When our men got to the scene of the incident, the area was immediately cordoned off by the police and the Lagos State Ambulance Service was invited. The corpse of the deceased and that of the new born baby were evacuated to IDH Yaba mortuary. Efforts are on to locate her family.”
