In June, the late woman delivered a set of twins (boy and girl) through a cesarean section. The woman was said to be happy and full of life as she returned home with her bundles of joy.

However, tragedy struck some hours after she returned home as she started complaining about her inability to breathe well. When a doctor came in to check her, it was realised that her blood level was low.

Blood transfusion was carried out and was taken back to the theatre room after a scan revealed she had internal bleeding. A surgery was carried out on her and returned back to her room.

But hours later, she was taken back to the theater where she eventually gave up the ghost.
