This is a story of a Nigerian tricycle driver whose wife was delivered of a baby through caesarean section (CS). The young man, unable to pay their medical bills took to Twitter to solicit support. "Please help me Nigerians my wife and child have been held up in the hospital since November 6th 2019 bcos we are unable to settle the Medical Bills she gave birth through C.S which we didn't plan towards it..I'm a Keke Napep driver. I'm pleading on you all to help me please."

"I received the Sum of 2000 naira and 5000 naira...Thank you so much to the Kind persons who sent it God will surely reward you and your family. I was at the ATM to withdraw the 108,000 naira to go pay the hospital after withdrawing this alerts came in we received a total sum of 129,500 out of 170,000.
