“I Will Help The Twins If Dad Reconciles With Run Away Mum” – Monarch Says
More people are urging the father of the
abandoned twins who were released last week
from a Lagos hospital to forgive his second
wife who abandoned the babies and take her
And now there’s a promise attached to the
plea. A monarch has promised to help the two
abandoned babies in the Somolu area of
Lagos and their family if the parents would
bury their differences.
The top monarch from in Ogun State, who
asked not to be identified, urged the
Ademolas to come together to take care of
the twins, saying it was in their interest.
This is just as the twins’ father, Adeyemi, said
he was not opposed to a reconciliation, but
wanted his second wife, Sarah, to “learn her
lessons” for abandoning the babies who were
barely 2 weeks old.
Mr. Adeyemi had told Punch that he had to
empty his account to pay a total of N150,000,
promising to pay the balance, before his
second wife absconded.
He had disowned his wife and said he was

help the babies if their parents could come
He said, “I read the touching report of the
abandoned twins like other Nigerians and I
decided to settle the bill, but I was told it had
“But I believe there are other ways of helping
the family. What I, however, think is important
is that the parents must let go of their
differences. Those babies would have been
missing their mother and no matter what the
woman might have done, she needs to be
around them to breastfeed them. There is
nobody that can play that role for them, but
their mother. I want to urge the man to
forgive his wife.”
The husband, Mr Adeyemi confirmed that the
monarch had reached out to his family, saying
the matter was being considered. He’ll most
likely forgive and take back his wife.
