Woman delivers baby with 4 legs, 2 genitals in Katsina


A 20-year-old lady identified as Zainab has given birth to a baby with 4 legs and 2 genitals at Sabon Garin Makiyawa in Magama Jibia, Katsina State.
Zainab, who is the second wife of one Malam Hassan Ibrahim, delivered the baby on March 9, 2018.
Describing the baby, Hassan said, “The child has both sexes and four legs, the two abnormal legs and a penis are on the left side of the ribs, only one of the two additional legs is moving, the second doesn’t. I can say it’s a girl because the longer and normal legs have a female genital at their proper place.”
When asked if his wife attended ante-natal clinic during pregnancy, Hassan said she did.
“For now, I’m made to understand from some health officials that she may need surgery to correct the defects and was given a referral later to the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital to meet a consultant paediatric surgeon,” he added.
