According to the hospital, the woman delivered two sets of twin boys and one set of twin girls between 4:50am and 4:59am local time on Friday. The woman, Thelma Chiaka, is doing well.
The babies were born at weights ranging from 1 pound and 12 ounces to 2 pounds and 14 ounces. They are stable and will continue to receive care at the hospital's advanced neonatal intensive care unit, according to the hospital statement.
