It was gathered that Sheriff and his wife who were residents of Bosun Street, Ifo LGA, Ogun State, had been waiting for their first issue after two years of marriage until the wife, Mrs. Taiwo Sheriff, delivered a baby boy without any arm.

Mrs. Sheriff pleaded with well -meaning Nigerians to come to her aid as she has nowhere to go.
She appealed to governments at all tiers to come to her aid by adopting the baby.
She said: “This is my first child and I do not know why I had to give birth to this kind of a baby. Since my husband was informed that his son had deformity, he has not come to see me. He is a commercial driver, and we have been married now for almost two years now before God decided to answer our prayer.
“When I was pregnant, we took every step that the doctor directed us to do, but we did not know why we came about this calamity.”
“I have been warned by both my husband and our landlord not to bring the child home. The hospital has asked us to leave the hospital, now we have nowhere to go, I don’t need this baby, I want government to come and adopt him,” she pleaded
