She died after delivering twins last week is dead



The inmate of the Calabar Prison
that delivered twins at the
General Hospital Calabar on April
17 has died at the University of
Calabar Teaching Hospital due to
postnatal complications.

The Prison authority disclosed this
in a statement by ASP Effanga
Etim, Public Relations Officer of
the State Prison Command on
Wednesday in Calabar.

He said that the mother of the
twins died two days after
delivery.
The Command, however,
debunked media reports that the
twins were delivered in the
prison command in Calabar.

He explained that the deceased
was remanded by a High Court in
Calabar on Nov. 5, 2018 with six
month-old pregnancy for the
offence of child stealing.
“While in prison, she had been
under regular ante-natal care at
the General Hospital, Calabar. On
17th of April, 2019 by 1:30pm
when her labour began, she was
admitted in the same hospital and a Caesarean Section was carried
out on her.’’

Speaking to NAN on behalf of the
state government, the
Commissioner for Health, Dr
Inyang Asibong, expressed shock
over the inmate’s death, saying
that the state government had already taken up the care of the
twins.

“Following the release from the
prison authorities about her
death, I wish to state that we will
continue to do our best for the
care of the children,’’ she said.
