Culled from PM News:
“By the time I came the day she was in labour, the baby was already coming out. So I assisted her.
“After that, we were expecting the placenta, but the woman began behaving like one about to run mad. I was so confused.
woman was shouting that she wanted to push again and all of a sudden,
the Quran, wrapped in nylon and stained with blood jumped out.
of confusion, I ran out and called people who came to see. We also
called a Muslim cleric around the area who came and prayed for the
baby,” she said.
Father of the baby, Luqman Lamidi, said he was in
a drinking bar when he was called and told that his wife had delivered a

Oyedokun, said he was the one who tore the nylon from the Quran after
he was called to the place.
“When I came, people were still
