A 44-year-old man, Mr. Olanrewaju Kolawole, wept profusely after DNA test results revealed that he was not the biological father of his four children.
The man, an indigene of Ikire in Osun State, and his wife, Mrs. Tella Toyin, share four kids aged 16, 12, 8 and 5.
However, reacting to the development, his wife, Toyin, disagreed with the results, saying that she was not there when they took the sample and did not know which samples were taken.
She said: “I don’t accept the result. I don’t accept it because I was not there when they took samples, and I don’t know which sample they took, so I don’t accept it.
“I can’t accept it because I know how I conceived those children.”
The paternity crisis was revealed when Kolawole and Toyin appeared on the popular radio show; ‘Kokoro Alate’, on Agidigbo FM, Ibadan, Oyo State, anchored by Oriyomi Hamzat.
Following the first DNA test of the first child, which revealed that the child was not his, the man claimed to have subsequently carried out tests on the three other children. And all returned negative results.
He said: “I want Nigerians to come to my rescue because I must not suffer this in vain. I married Toyin in 2007 and gave birth to four children.
“But none of the children belongs to me after findings from a DNA test.”
Asked why he decided to conduct the test in the first place, he said he made the decision to carry out the tests on his children after observing some promiscuous moves from his wife.
The DNA test was conducted at the DDC DNA Diagnostic Centre in Osogbo.
