A Nigerian man has revealed that all four children he had with his wife belong to another man.

The Osun-based man who hails from Ikire and identified as Kolawole Olanrewaju made the revelation during a programme aired in Yoruba on Saturday on Agidigbo FM in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Married to his wife identified as Toyin Olanrewaju for 17 years, he said he has been having a running battle with her whom he accused of engaging in extramarital affairs.

According to the report, he conducted a DNA test on four children children aged 16, 12, 8 and 5 at DDC DNA Diagnostic Centre in Ibadan, Oyo State only for the results to return negative indicating he is not their biological father.

He said, “I am seeking help from Nigerians. I want justice. I married her (Toyin) in 2007 and she gave birth to four children. I later found out that none of the four children is mine after DNA test. She has been cheating on me. Whenever we quarrel, it is because of her waywardness.

“She has a property and whenever I chided her for indulging in adultery, she would say it was a matter of time. I didn’t understand that she was planning to move to her site as soon she completed it so that she would be very free.

“Last year, she said she wanted a house help and I advised her to get a male, but she insisted she wanted female. I went to work ome day and before I came back she had packed out.”

Kolawole said after back and forth, he decided to divorce Toyin, but in the process, it occurred to him to run a DNA test on their children

“I did for our first child and the result returned zero percent compatibility in our blood. I took the child to her house and as I was leaving, I overheard her telling somebody on the phone that ‘they have brought your child, come and pick him up.’

“The man on the other end of the phone told her to bring the child to Osogbo. That was why I decided to do DNA for the three remaining children and it turned out that all of them are not mine,” he added.

Toyin, however, rejected the DNA results, insisting that the children belong to Kolawole.

“I don’t accept those results. I was not there when the sample was collected so I didn’t know what samples were collected. I can’t accept those results because I know how I got pregnant. The person that told my (first) child that he is the father has not confirmed the result,” she said.
