The National Hospital Abuja on Thursday discharged the conjoined twin girls who were successfully separated after several surgeries.
The Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr Jaf Mommoh, said in Abuja that the twins were conjoined at the chest and abdomen.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the conjoined twins were referred from Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, Nasarawa State, to the hospital on Aug. 13, 2018.
Mommoh said the twins had been on admission at the hospital for more than 16 months for care and several diagnostic procedures for a detailed diagnosis in preparation for the surgery.
He said that the programme was meant to celebrate the team that carried out the surgery for their hard work.
Mommoh said the programme was also an avenue to raise fund for the parents to enable the twins to have a better life with healthy living.
