52-year-old Woman Delivers Baby With Traditional Beads

A 52-year-old grandmother, Mrs. Funke Adamson, has delivered a baby girl clutching white ‘Ileke’ (Yoruba name for beads) on her hands.

The mother, who is said to be a traditional worshipper explained that she gave birth to the “miracle child” on Monday, May 11, 2015 at a Trado-medical home in Apapa area of Lagos.

According to her, “I received a message from an Osun Custodian who said that a child was on the way for me. I didn’t believe him. I didn’t realize until the baby was three and half month old when I began to experienced flow of membranous fluid.”

It was gathered that Funke and her husband, Mr. Hamzat Adamson, 63-year-old never planned to have a child at this time.

According to reports, Funke had already entered her menopause age when the baby arrived.

She said before the strange delivery, she couldn’t sleep comfortably for two months.

Baby with beads

 “So I started praying before I later discovered that I was pregnant. Also, while trying to open a perfume, it caught fire, which made me suffer severe burns. After discovering the pregnancy, I couldn’t sleep without having a dream. In these dreams, I often found myself sitting at the shore,” Funke added.After her birth, the grandmother explained that the traditional healers who attended to her raised alarm that they found the baby clutching white beads.“When I heard this, I was afraid. I told them to inform my husband for any possible solution. Rather than demand that they discard the beads, he said they should be kept. After regaining my strength I removed the beads and tied it on her wrist,” she said.

Also confirming the development, the husband, Hamzat said “I was surprised when I saw the baby delivered holding beads in his hands. But I realized that the beads are important and that was why we have decided not to throw them away.”

Another, Rashidat Ojesanmi, the Osun custodian who gave the family the prophesy said “I was consulting the deities when I got the revelation that she would be blessed with a unique gift, which I told her. But she didn’t believe.

But as prophesied, few months later, she called me and told me of the signs she discovered.”
