A 30-year-old woman, Oluwaseun Bolatito, has delivered a baby girl after being pregnant for six years and some months in the Mafoluku area of Oshodi, Lagos.

Oluwaseun, who delivered the baby on Saturday, May 7, 2023, christened the child “Anuoluwa”, meaning God’s mercy.

According to Vanguard, the Founder of Light Evangelical House of God in Oshodi, Elder Michael Bako, where Oluwaseun worshipped since 2018 confirmed the development.

Elder Bako revealed that Oluwaseun started worshipping at his church in 2018 after she discovered she had been “pregnant for over a year”

He said: “She was pregnant for over six years and was unable to give birth during that period.

“It was the issue that lead her to this church,” he said.

However, Oluwaseun, who said she had been subjected to mockery in her neighbourhood, went into labour on Friday night and was delivered of a baby girl on Saturday at Anu Olu Convalescent Maternity Home in Mafoluku area of Oshodi.

It was learned that when the news of her baby’s birth reached her community, people rushed to the hospital to see for themselves.

However, a medical expert that does not want to be named, advised an examination by a professional to ascertain what really happened, as it could be a case of fibroid, Vanguard reports.
