She said, for the children to get adequate attention and care which they require, the State Government will be constantly assisting the couple to enable them provide for the triplets who are just four months old.

 

Mr and Mrs Ajah Ukam, who are giving care to the triplets said they were moved to do so when they observed that the mother of the children died after giving birth, leaving them with their father and two other siblings with no meaningful job for their father to take care of them.
