"We have two kids already, and the plan was to have two more kids, so when my wife got pregnant, it was our expectation that they would be twins. Hospital checks revealed that she was pregnant with three kids, but on the day she went into labour, that was when we both found out that it was quadruplets," he said.

Now his major problem is how to cater for the needs of six children, especially as his work as an electrician has declined.

"Now things are not easy, I used to work for a company, but the business has declined, so it has affected me. Even with two kids, things were not easy, so you can imagine the situation now that they are six".

His wife, who is a hairdresser, also said that for the time being, she is also at home nursing the kids and hence cannot financially support the man.
