A man who reportedly disappeared after his girlfriend got pregnant showed up surprisingly at the baptism of their baby, Emmanuel, in Benue state, Nigeria.
Rosemary Orachihi, the girlfriend, went through a lot has she was persuaded to terminate the pregnancy and made to face the music alone when she refused. Her boyfriend took off without a trace leaving her to bear the responsibility alone.
The touching story of Rosemary and Emmanuel was shared on Facebook by Ukan Kurugh. According to him, Rosemary was held down at the hospital about two months ago when she put to bed and was unable to clear the Ghc1500 bill set to her name.
But for the intervention of good Nigerians who came to her rescue, the poor lady might have been left to suffer alone. Kurugh, the poster of the news also played an active role in the process and was made the godfather of little Emmanuel.
The donation of items made by people helped the mother and child a great deal as they were able to bounce back real fast. However, Rosemary got the shock of her life when her boyfriend showed up unexpectedly at the baptism.
