“Buy their Yam and eat it if you want twins”: Nigerian Doctor advises woman who desires twin babies
A Nigerian doctor identified as @thebeardedDrSina on Twitter has gone viral after penning down a piece of advice on twin birth.
He claimed that anyone can give birth to twins by eating yam and Ilasa soup consistently at Igboora in Oyo state
He also described Igboora in Oyo state as the twin capital of the world, insinuating that anyone can have twins in this place, as even the animals birth twins.
To further strengthen his claim, he said he would stop practicing medicine if his suggestion doesn’t work
“Go to Igboora in Oyo state, the twin capital of the world. Buy their Yam, Eat it well and eat their regular Ilasa soup consistently. If you don’t deliver twins in 1 year, I’ll stop practicing Medicine.”
Dr. Sina spills more details about Igboora
In an earlier tweet, Dr. Sina claimed the yam contains clomiphene which stimulates the ovaries in women to produce an egg, thereby increasing the chance of twins.
The doctor said Igboora has so many twins that even animals like goats, sheep, rams, etc., can also have twins.
Social media reactions
@Yinkzworld2 replied: “Igboora is a sacred land for twins, whatever mystery behind that is only known to God. There is no family without twins, and I doubt if there are many barren in the land. It’s one of the mystery that even science will find it to give full answers to.”
@alexlobaloba said: “Doc is right sha, Igbo-Ora is the land of fertility and the twins capital of the world.”
@forvrfay reacted: “What about for triplets , genuinely asking.” @Wole_xy wrote: “Tested and confirmed. My twins are doing fine.”
@Olayemi511909119 said: “There’s no household that hails from igbo-ora that doesn’t have at least a twin.”
