A middle-aged man has allegedly abandoned his nursing wife, Evelyn, at a private hospital in Okpoko, Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State, where she was delivered of triplets.

Sunday Odinaka, a native of Ubaraekwem in Ihiala council, reportedly fled his No. 153b Obodoukwu Road home following his inability to afford the medical bills.

The Nation gathered that the couple already had four kids who were withdrawn from school due to financial constraints.

Mrs. Odinaka, a petty trader, narrated her ordeal to reporters on Thursday from her hospital bed. She said her husband begged the doctor to allow him go seek for assistance to offset the N450,000 bill and is yet to return two weeks after.
