Positive Update on the Conjoined Twin Girls in Enugu

Ayeni Twins

Your voices were heard. We know there are 2 sides to every story but we were truly disheartened because a mother had to resort to pleading for help on the internet, just so the hospital could honour her family’s wishes.

In case you missed it, Mary Ayeni gave birth to twin girls named Miracle and Testimony – 4 months ago, the beautiful twins are conjoined and require surgery. UNTH in Enugu is currently handling the case and was not cooperating in sharing patient records despite the parents’ wishes.

Here is an update on the Ayeni twins via Caroline Danjuma – the actress has been advocating for the rights of the twins and their parents as well as supporting financially via her Hopeville Foundation;

A big THANK YOU to all the blogs , and to every single person that reposted and spoke out, our voices was certainly heard and I believe our babies will be happy to thank you all personally when they grow up. UNTH Enugu has apologised for not communicating well and for other mishaps that occurred along the way. A lot of meetings have been going on for the safety of the kids and they have agreed to assist in sending out records to interested hospitals. We thank them for their cooperation . All hands are on deck now, ensuring miracle and testimony have the best care and surgery . By my research such surgery takes 10-18 hrs depending on its complexity , chances of survival is 5-25 percent , which could involve 20-25 surgeons , finding the best team for the surgery is our outmost priority regardless of where it would be. We want both girls to be alive . By his grace all will be well. Will keep you all updated . Thank you very much and may God stand up for you as you stood up for the Ayeni twins. We all appreciate you all. The battle will soon be over.

    Here is the power of social media in Nigeria. This case, the QC molestation, the Rivers corper, etc. Its like the only way to make the powerful in Nigeria do the right thing quickly is to broadcast it online.

    We thank God.

    caroline danjuma pls don’t say things u know nothing about. what the hell is

    ” By my research
    such surgery takes 10-18 hrs depending
    on its complexity , chances of survival is
    5-25 percent , which could involve 20-25

    pls u are not a doctor, u are a makeup artist so pls don’t say things like that.

    • Yup March 25, 2016 at 11:37 pm

      Sooooo a makeup artist can’t do research on the process? Doctors and surgeons are the only ones that are privileged to such information? Your comment still confuses me LOOOOOL
      Information is easily accessible bruno

        Don’t mind Bruno! Being gay doesn’t mean you’ve to disagree with everything and everybody all the time o! When they say that gay men make girls’ best friends, I doubt if they were referring to Bruno.

    • Nik March 25, 2016 at 11:59 pm

      This is the most useless comment I ever read. I am sorry for you. Your ignorance knows no bound. ANYBODY can make a research. She doesnt need to be a doctor to research a case. You dont need to be Boko Haram to know about them, do you?

    • Dee one March 26, 2016 at 2:07 am

      What a dumb comment….. This is proof that common sense is indeed not common

    • Anonymous March 26, 2016 at 3:59 am

      Bruno I never really bother about your comments but this is a new low. Anyone with access to resources irrespective of background can do research. Her information is accurate. And before you ask any dim-witted question I am a medical professional

    • Chi March 26, 2016 at 7:44 am

      Bruno abeg subtract 2 likes from your likes bcos thanks to BellaNaija not undoing likes, I just “dashed” your comment 2 undeserved likes.
      My dear Bruno, there’s nothing you can’t find on the Internet these days. Sometimes, patients, friends and families of some patients suffering from a particular ailment can do so much research that the suggest alternative treatment to medical practitioners.
      why are you this shallow mbok?
      You just proved that you didn’t allow the school system to pass through you-you just passed through the school.

  • shady March 26, 2016 at 12:25 am

    See this delusional bruno . So u think u know better than a make up artist. Google is ur friend okay. Go do ur own research whilst we support Caroline nd the family to get the best treatment for this children.

  • Madam March 26, 2016 at 1:12 am

    Why did it take the doctors this long to speak up? I suspect something fishy. All the same, thanks to the power of social media

  • Moi March 26, 2016 at 1:28 am

    Yipppppeee!!!!!! God be praised

  • Kiiki March 26, 2016 at 4:43 am

    Thank You Jesus! We screamed and they listened!???

  • Kelechi March 26, 2016 at 4:48 am

    Bruno whoever did this to you must repent!

  • bruno March 26, 2016 at 6:45 am

    daft people .i dont blame many of u its ur nature. many of u were born daft.
    she is not a doctor so why the hell should she say survival rate is 5-25 percent. is every conjoined twins case the same.

    u think u can shake me with ur insults.i said what I said. if u like agree with me , don’t.

    caroline pls don’t make such assumptions.

    • Branded March 26, 2016 at 8:37 am

      Bruno, receive pure unadulterated sense into your life, IJN

    • AW March 26, 2016 at 9:12 am

      Let me break it down for you! Someone (a professional or academic in this area of medicine) must have done a study on this type of surgeries and has put the information and statistics out there. Caroline didn’t just pull the information out of her anus!
      When she said she did her research, IT MEANS she went online or read journals that can provide this information. If you go online, I am not talking Instagram, gossip sites and Facebook, there is a wealth of information out there.

  • Chiemeka Ugo March 26, 2016 at 10:37 am

    Why are you people disturbing yourselves about this useless bruno’s comment. People like him/her are the ones that will claim that the finished from a four walls of a university. Will you mind his ignorance when all the do is just to go to wikipedia as a student, copy and paste and then submit to the lecturer who will at the end give them a useless grade. This bruno’s case is a confirmation that our educational system in Nigeria is a big mess. He/she does not understand that one can pull get informed about stuffs through researching online. Their are plenty of journals one can find online written by professionals/expert in that field and put online for research purposes. The useless fool does not understand that one. This is 2016 and in a weeks time march will be ending and we will enter a brand new month. So all you need to do is to receive undiluted sense before the year runs out. one thing you have to know that age will not always be on your side for you to continue acting stupid and dumb.

  • Paulette March 26, 2016 at 11:55 am

    There is so much information out there, and you have to do is look for it. You don’t need to be a doctor to carry out your own research. Bashing someone for that is somewhat ignorant.
    Eg I am not a doctor but I know a lot about Sickle cell, it’s all research and attending programmes.
    Carry out your own specific research and then and only then can you call her out.

  • stephy mum March 26, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    Bruno sorry for u,pls wise up

  • Lola Carey March 26, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    Pls when will all you sensible people learn to ignore this Bruno guy abi na girl?can’t u see he thrives on trying to wind you guys up?geez!

  • 9ja March 27, 2016 at 8:56 pm

    so the hospital released the mri and scan result eh. very good.
    why couldnt they do so without the social media outcry. what of the other people who want their reports? must they resort to social media protest?
