Harbal Drink Hawker Gives Birth Inside a Tricycle aka Keke Napep

What an amazing story of a mother who gave birth in a tricycle popularly known as keke napep in Nigeria. Basirat Ogundeji, a 28-year old herbal concoction hawker, popularly known as Paraga seller, has been delivered of a baby girl inside a tricycle at Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.
It was gathered that Basirat went into labour when the bus she boarded at Ikeja on her way back home developed fault and was being repaired by the bus driver at a bus stop in Oregun.
It was learnt that when she could no longer bear the labour pains, Basirat quickly sought the assistance of a woman who was selling by the roadside.
Basirat, with the assistance of the woman, took a tricycle to Oregun Flagship Primary Health Centre but she gave birth while they were on the way to the clinic.

Also learnt the baby’s placenta was later removed by the nurses on her arrival at the clinic. The mother of two, while speaking with P.M NEWS on her hospital bed at Oregun Public Health Centre, said she came to Lagos after her boyfriend refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy
