15 December 2016, 15:41

Lagos - The Ogudu area of Lagos state was thrown into frenzy, following the birth of a baby girl with two heads.

According to reports, the baby has two heads with oxygen tube strapped on each. She equally has a neck, chest, two legs and two hands. A rare condition which in medical parlance, is known as Parapagus.

It is a rare form of partial twinning where there are two heads and two necks side by side on one torso.

Doctors at Med-In Specialist Hospital, Osogbo Street, who took the delivery, said the baby was born around 6:30pm on Tuesday through an elective caesarean section.

The Nation reports that at the hospital on Wednesday, the baby was resuscitated and transferred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) for advance care.

According to one of the nurses who was in the delivery room, they had prepared two cots for each of the twins but were shocked when they saw that they were conjoined.
