Twins Infanticide (2019)

It focuses on the age-old inhumane practice of killing twins and infants in some rural communities across Nigeria and Africa because they are perceived as 'bad luck' or 'evil' by these communities. A Christian missionary, Steven Olusola Ajayi and his wife Chinwe started an Orphanage home to shelter children (mostly twins) deemed "evil" by their communities.
