A team of Nigerian doctors has successfully separated a set of conjoined twins at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada.
The doctors, led by Dr Nuhu Kwajafa of the Global Peace Initiatives, confirmed the success of the operation that took them several hours on Tuesday.
“We wish to express our profound gratitude, as we say a massive thank you to Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, for his kind-hearted and extremely generous gesture to the successfully separated twins and their family…God bless you, Sir,” Kwajafa posted.
Spokesman to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hassan Turaki, said on Wednesday that Dogara was moved by the plight of the parents to settle the medical bill.
