Born through the cesarian section in Nembe, Bayalsa state, the twins were airlifted by the Nigerian Airforce plane and their parents to the hospital to undergo medical procedure to separate them.
Mohammad, further disclosed that, this surgery was the third time the hospital conducted successful and the fith series which the CMD serve as led surgeon.
According to him, the twins were admitted at the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital for eight months, due to challenges poised by COVID-19 pandemic.
The CMD urged governments to support the parents of the twins, whose low level of income can not carter for the babies.
“The treatment was successful and free of charge, involving medical Doctors from FMC Yanagua.
“They had to stay in the ICU for eight months to enable us study the Coronavirus challenges.”
He added that, conjoin twin is widely believed to occured when the embryo splits later than it usually between 13 and 15 days after conception separation stops before the process is complete, and the resulting twins are conjoined.
