A father of seven has narrated how the much-talked-about family planning contraception has failed him as his wife conceived and recently gave birth to quadruplets.

City & Crime reports that Mr. and Mrs Christopher Agbo who live at Sabon-Tasha, Gwagwa, an Abuja suburb, were blessed with quadruplets last Thursday at a private clinic in Kubwa, Abuja.

In an interview with our reporter, Mr Agbo, who hails from Ado LGA Benue State, said having been blessed with five children in the past, he and his wife, Mercy, decided to stop getting more, hence that his wife started family planning and was placed on contraceptives.

According to Mr Agbo, his wife had an implant contraception surgery at a local health centre where they lived.

He said, “However, three months into the process, we discovered that the method was not working well, hence she switched to the use of drugs from a pharmacy.

“But despite all these, she conceived and was confirmed to be carrying four babies after a scan.


“We then visited the Kubwa General Hospital where she had a second scan and the same thing was confirmed; even with the expected date of delivery next month.

“But we had to rush back last Thursday as she started observing signs of delivery. She gave birth to the four babies without any operation.’’


Commenting, the chief medical consultant of the hospital, Dr Onogwu Joseph, said, “I am not aware of the said use of contraception by the mother of the quadruplets. But I presume that if it had been properly used it should not have led to that.’’
