A 44-year-old man, Olanrewaju Kolawole, has appealed to Nigerians to come to his aid after DNA results revealed that he is not the biological father of all his four children.
Kolawole, an indigene of Ikire in Irewole Local Government Area in Osun State, made the appeal while appearing on a radio programme anchored by Oriyomi Hamzat, tagged Kokoro Alate on Agidigbo 88.7 FM in Ibadan on Friday.
The Telegraph gathered that the DNA test was conducted at the DDC DNA Diagnostic Center in Osogbo.
Our correspondent, who monitored the magazine programme, reports that the 44-year-old man wept profusely after the DNA test results showed that none of his four children was his biological child.
It was gathered that Kolawole and his wife, Toyin Tella, got married in 2007, and the marriage ‘produced’ four children.
The Telegraph reports that the case of paternity fraud was revealed when the couple appeared on the radio programme on Friday.
Kolawole, while speaking, noted that the first DNA test of the first child revealed that the child did not belong to him.
He added that he subsequently carried out tests on the three other children, and all returned negative.
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. She gave birth to four children, but none of them belongs to me after findings from a DNA test.”
Mrs Tella Toyin, while reacting, disagreed with the results.
She said that she was not there when they took the sample and did not know which samples were taken.
“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.”
