Gaje Zubairu, a 38-year-old woman who was delivered of quadruplets at the General Hospital, Malumfashi, Katsina State, last Wednesday through caesarian operation, died Sunday morning, Punch reports.
The hospital’s Chief Medical Director, Dr. AbdulHamed Abdullahi, provided no details on the circumstances surrounding the death. He revealed that Ms. Zubairu died about 11 on Sunday.
Sources at the hospital said her death was unconnected with the caesarian section, because, according to them, her health condition had already stabilized after the operation and plans were even being made for the naming of the babies.
A good Samaritan was said to have even purchased the ram to be slaughtered on Wednesday for the naming ceremony. Staff were alerted to her sudden restlessness and a few minutes later, she was dead.
Zubairu had been delivered of three boys and one girl, last Wednesday. One of the quadruplets died on the evening of the delivery date, leaving three behind. Family sources said the remaining three babies were in good condition.
