Doctors Successful In Seperation Of Conjoined Twins

A baby girl conjoined with an unresponsive twin has survived after surgeons carried out a successful separation in Bauchi.

Seven surgeons, doctors and other medical staff worked to part the conjoined twins during a two-hour operation.

Officials in the state said the female baby who survived is responding well to treatment.

The conjoined twins were born in December last year to a 20-year-old mother in Bauchi state.

Reports say one of the twins was born not breathing, necessitating urgent medical help to separate them.

The Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara sponsored the separation of the twins.
