A Nigerian man, who claimed that he mistakenly impregnated his girlfriend, has taken to social media to solicit help for baby-related items.
In a Twitter thread on Friday, Aderonmu said it has been a tough task shouldering the attendant responsibilities since they welcomed their baby on Thursday.
He called on Nigerians to help them with towels, blankets, sleeping net, diapers among other baby-related items.
He also explained that he decided to seek help on the platform considering the fact that he had no other option as family members refused to assist them.
“I mistakenly impregnated my girlfriend when I’m not close to ‘having it together’ & yeah yesterday she got delivered a baby girl,” he wrote.
I mistakenly impregnated my gf when I’m not close to ‘having it together’ & yh yesterday she got delivered a baby girl. Families aren’t helping so I’m asking if you have any baby stuffs you could give out pls help with it. I’m doing a lot of running around just said to try this

“Families aren’t helping so I’m asking if you have any baby stuffs you could give out pls help with it. I’m doing a lot of running around just said to try this
“We still need more clothing items like towels, blankets and sorts. Sleeping net, diapers…I don’t even know but if you have anything baby stuffs you could give out pls help us with. Thanks.
“I can’t even be ashamed to do this man. At this stage I’m literally running out of options.”
His post has since elicited mixed reactions on Twitter, with Nigerians sharing their different views on his ordeal.
“Mistakenly? For nine months you couldn’t plan? You knew you weren’t ready why not use protection? This is highly irresponsible of you,” a user wrote.
“The fact that you guys didn’t opt for abortion is good thing bro, God will help you guys!” another user wrote.
Here’s is what some Nigerians had to say:
He needs to mention it’s a mistake so people don’t ask him why he gave birth without being ready for it. This street is crazy, I see nothing wrong in him saying mistake. Cos the truth is that it’s a mistake cos he’s not prepared to be a father.

First, remove the “mistake” because the child is here now and you won’t be happy if she is referred to as “born by mistake”. That word makes it seem you are seeking sympathy. Well meaning people will definitely help you.

Sorry you can’t need peoples help and keep Wizkid as your profile picture. You need to be real if truly you want their attention !! This seems to be a write up😎 But if it’s legit I pray you get the life safer

Rather unplanned, not mistake.
There are cases of such & doesn’t determine what but who the baby end up being. If y’re real – show remorse, seek forgiveness for fornication, prove some love, care & keep up legit hustle. Your Android phone can start mini biz & lift u up. Best luck

Your honesty! Your sense of responsibility! I logged into Twitter to find you. I’ve given out all my baby stuff but I have a widow’s mite for you. I’m a single mom struggling ro raise my son too. I can relate 100%. I wasn’t as brave as you to ask for help. Dm acct

You had nine months to prepare after the “mistake” as you call it, well thanks for not terminating..
If your story is true, walk into the the nearest Catholic Church and ask for St. Vincent de Paul society, they will do their findings, once verified – They wil fix you up good.

Do u call this courage or irresponsibility. Why put a lady in the family way when u don’t have the capacity to shoulder the responsibility. Shameful!!
