The elated father of the babies, Dr Kehinde Osiki of the Department of History and Strategic Studies, University of Lagos, was said to be on the ground to witness the delivery of the babies.

The father of the newborn babies, who expressed joy on the arrival of the babies, said, “Technology has brought relief to problems often attributed to spirituality.”
