Gombe Bomb blast: Pregnant woman delivers pre-matured baby

A pregnant woman receiving treatment at Gombe Specialist Hospital Gombe as a result of the twin bomb blasts in Dadin/Kowa Motor Park, has been delivered of a pre-mature male baby.
The Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr Reuben Ardo, who disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday in Gombe, said that the woman was delivered through a Cesarean Section (CS).
Ardo said that the woman was still in the hospital receiving treatment, while the baby was put in an incubator.
“We noticed that the pregnant woman’s baby was going through stress, so, we took her to the theater for an emergency surgery to save the lives of both baby and mother.
“The mother is currently at the hospital receiving treatment, while the baby is in the incubator at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Federal Teaching Hospital (FTH) Gombe.
``From the information we got, the woman was coming back home from the church, when she met the unfortunate incident,’’ he said.
Ardo further said that since the blast, they treated and discharged 56 victims, 15 on admission, 15 bodies deposited at the mortuary, while six were referred to FTH because of their serious bleeding cases, for the attention of experts.
“One has a chest injury, the other one has head injury, one was with multiple injuries and he was bleeding from everywhere, They need specialist attention,’’ he said.
When contacted, the Deputy Director, Public Relations, FTH, Malam Haruna Abdulrasheed, confirmed that the baby was in the hospital.
He said that they recorded 21 dead bodies, 36 on admission and nine who were treated and discharged.
On Wednesday night, a twin bomb blast exploded at Dadin/Kowa and Dukku Motor Parks in Gombe.
