Two New Born Babies Of Ambazonian Refugees in Nigeria Reported Dead
It is barely a week since it was broadcast from Hit 95.5 FM in Calabar about the alarming number of pregnant women from Southern Cameroons who have taken refuge in Ekom local government and other parts of the Cross River state in Nigeria. We are now receiving disturbing reports that two newborn babies from this pregnant women have died.
This unfortunate incidence was disclosed to a correspondence of Hit 95.5FM by the spokesman of the Southern Cameroonians present-day Federal Republic of Ambazonia refugees in Nigeria Mr. Solomon Amaboh.
Solomon explained that the babies died as the result of the poor health conditions of their mothers. He reported about 70 pregnant women are faced with the problem of food, medication and unfortunately the two babies who died after delivery was not as a result of lack of care from the hospital, but the health conditions of the mums while they were still pregnant. He also reported the mums were not feeding well which might have greatly impacted the health of the babies before birth and not that the hospitals did not provide proper care or lack the resources.
Solomon also disclosed plans by some indigenes of Southern Cameroons to render support in the provision of medications and other amenities to support the pregnant women in the hospital. He also acknowledges that Ambazonians are mobilizing the people to provide medications to hospitals so that they will be able to treat not only the Ambazonians in these hospitals but any other person within the community who is sick. He also acknowledges the provision of boreholes to provide clean water to the people so that they will not be drinking contaminated water from wells.
He also reported plans are being made to visit the camps and hospitals again and make sure the pregnant women especially those within the eight to nine months of their pregnancy, and those who cannot get the basic things to support them after birth be provided with adequate support.
