A team of Nigerian doctors on Tuesday successfully separated a set of conjoined twins at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital (UATH) in Gwagwalada.

The doctors led by Dr. Nuhu Kwajafa of the Global Peace Initiatives (GPI) confirmed the success of the operation that took them several hours in a post  he made on his official Instagram account.

“We wish to express our profound gratitude, as we say a massive thank you to Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, for his kind hearted and extremely generous gesture to the successfully separated twins and their family…God bless you Sir,” Dr. Kwajafa posted.
