The Government of Saudi Arabia has offered treatment to a Nigerian family who birthed conjoined twins.

The babies will undergo surgical operation at the King Salman Humanitarian and Relief Centre.

Hassana and Hussaina, joined in the abdomen, were born to a family from Kano State.

The mother was a housewife in Tudun Wada in the Soba Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

She was delivered in late January 2020 at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria.

The girls currently share a liver and did not come with anuses for the excretion of wastes.

They were moved to the National Hospital in Abuja, where they stayed about eight without undergoing surgery due to lack of funds.

A statement by the presidency on Thursday thanked the Saudi authorities for approving humanitarian assistance.

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu said Consul General, Khalil Ahmed Al-Adamawi got the support of the King Salman Foundation.

The body will send an air ambulance soon to transport Hassana and Hussaina and their parents to Riyadh.

The Nigerian government thanked the Arab nation and the foundation for the aid, and prayed for the success of the surgery
