Nigerian Woman Gives Birth On Repatriation Flight From UAE
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, chairperson of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, said that Kafayat Amusan had given birth to a baby boy about 30 minutes after the flight left the airport.
The plane returned to Dubai immediately to ensure the safety of both mother and baby.
Ms Amusan and her baby are in good condition after they were admitted to a hospital in Dubai.
They are scheduled to return to Nigeria after the newborn’s birth certificate is issued and other necessary travel documents are prepared.
Some 256 people later arrived at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos at about 19:00 local time on Wednesday.
