In her interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the woman said the set of quadruplets is her eighth delivery.
After the delivery, the babies and the mothered were transferred to the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) for adequate care.
The mother, however, said that the only male child among the babies died before they got to ABUTH and the remaining ones have been placed under intensive care.
Hauwa’u said that she was given two bags of blood to aide her during the delivery process. She added that though she is very healthy, medical officials said she needs to be monitored before she can be discharged.
Sulaiman Mohammed, her husband, said his wife had had a set of triplets twice, a set of twins on two different occasions and three other babies at different times before the latest delivery.
Mohammed who is also a driver gave thanks to Allah for the quadruplets that were given to him. He added that his brother always supports him taking care of the children whenever he needs help.
His mother, Saudatu Haruna, said that the birth was not a surprising one as it runs in the family, adding that she gave birth to a set of twins on two different occasions. She said that her mother was also a triplet while her father was a twin.
