While some dispute the claim, others say it is possible. A large crowd gathered at 1, Sonde Street, Ijeshatedo, Lagos home of the boy’s parents yesterday, as news of the birth spread rapidly.
His mother, Mrs. Kikelomo Ilori, 32, a Cosmetologist, told us that he was born on Monday after she had carried the pregnancy for about 10 months. The single mother claimed she was abandoned by her husband who denied responsibility for the pregnancy and encouraged her to abort it. The woman told us yesterday: “When I refused to abort the pregnancy, he deserted me, saying ‘that is your own problem’.” Mrs. Ilori expressed surprise at the birth of the boy. She added that the nurse who delivered her of the baby was physically challenged, but went about it commendably.
“When my baby was delivered holding a Quran in his hand, the nurse said the Quran should be thrown away. But I insisted my mother must see it before any action could be taken,” Kikelomo, who is a Christian, further explained.
Corroborating the story, Senior Rev. Victoria Yetunde Dada said during the pregnancy, Kikelomo was always coming to her for prayers and counselling.
“I advised her not to abort the pregnancy because she might die in the process. Again, I told her the foetus was sent by God and will be great,” Apostle Mother Dada told our correspondent. Controversy has continued to trail the seemingly spurious claim.
Reacting, Medical Director of Bodet Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, Dr. Bode Tawak said scientifically, it was not possible for a baby to be born holding a Quran.
“How big is the baby’s hand to hold the Quran? How big is the Quran? How did the Quran get into her mother’s womb? I don’t know how a Quran can get into a womb. But there are things you can’t explain,” Dr. Tawak responded. He said while the incident cannot be explained medically, in Nigeria many mysterious things happen. A Kaduna-based medical practitioner, Dr. Munir Yusuf said from a medical point of view, it was not possible, but added that depending on the size of the Quran, it was possible metaphysically.
He explained that if the Quran is small enough to pass through the diameter of the vagina, with the child, it is possible. In the same vein, a herbal medicine practitioner, Chief Dr. Bola Adegunloye believes nothing is impossible, but said too much importance must not be placed on the incident.

1. She doesn’t communicate
One of the main keys to having better intimacy is communication; however, many women don’t focus on their own sexuality and assume that a man will come along to teach them everything they should know. Some women don’t show their emotions and fall victim to the idea that their partner will automatically know or sense what’s going on with her. The bottom line is that you will not know what she likes best if she never tells you.
2. She shows no enthusiasm
A woman’s sexual enthusiasm also communicates her interest in you. She doesn’t have to bounce off the walls, but she should at least be interested in sex and show a willingness to go out of her comfort zone and try new things sometimes.
3. She lets you do whatever
Most of us don’t like to have sex with a corpse. When a woman just just lies there, makes no noise and lets you do whatever you want in bed, it’s a huge turnoff because you feel like you’re more into it than she is.
4. She has poor hygiene
Most women care immensely about how they present themselves; however, there are some who do not and it carries over to the bedroom. Women with poor hygiene, i.e., not shaving anywhere, displaying unkempt hair, having bad breath and foul odor from their intimate areas are not desirable and are often seen as disgusting and very inconsiderate.
5. She pretends to be sick
Women are good at faking sickness or headache just to avoid having sex with their man. These same women fail to realize that too many excuses will send a man looking elsewhere for satisfaction.
6. She’s not willing to learn or experiment
These women aren’t open to experimentation and aren’t creative enough in the bedroom. They don’t appear to be very adventurous and only want to have sex in the missionary position.
7. She ‘s not confident
Women need to understand that men rarely look at their flaws (stretch marks, a little jiggly belly) during sex. A woman who is overly concerned about her appearance and hides her body during sex, or refuses to enjoy certain sexual positions because she fears what a guy might think of her body can often dampen the mood.
8. She talks too much
Everyone knows that women like to talk a lot, but it’s not the best activity to do in bed. Conversation has its place, but no one, especially men, really wants to talk about the kids, grocery shopping, or what you did that day during intercourse. Talking during sex should be reserved only for dirty talk and whispering sweet nothings.
9. She stops doing what you like
She begins doing something you’re into, your perfectly aroused and enjoying yourself and what does she do? She stops what she’s doing and rushes off to the bathroom. Lots of women don’t understand how this can totally destroy the mood.
10. She never initiates lovemaking
It’s an old stereotype: men lead, women follow. Although most women like men to be dominant and take the lead sexually, it doesn’t have to be the guy who is dominant all the time. It’s just as nice for guys to see their assertive side.
