Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Bola Ojuola, Akure.

A mad woman who de­liv­ered a fe­male child in Ilu­ti­tun, Ok­i­tipupa Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Ondo State has named the baby af­ter the wife of the state gov­er­nor, Betty Ak­eredolu .

The woman gave birth to the baby in a bush close to the town, to the shock of passersby who saw her in that con­di­tion and as­sisted by mov­ing her to the hos­pi­tal for proper care.

The baby was named Morenike Betty Ak­eredolu and a birth cer­tifi­cate is­sued to her in that re­spect.

Daily Trust learnt that Ok­i­tipupa Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment which is­sued the birth cer­tifi­cate has also taken re­spon­si­bil­ity of the baby on be­half of the Ondo State Gov­ern­ment.

Res­i­dents who spoke on the mat­ter, said the mad woman was in the habit of so­lic­it­ing for alms in street and slept at any avail­able space.

One of the res­i­dents, Dayo Abi­ola, said no one could ac­tu­ally say who got the woman preg­nant in the com­mu­nity, as no one had claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity.
