Nosa Richie Eholor and Kelvin Oghowmen Eholor, both are supposed to be my children until I found out after doing a DNA test that I was duped by their mother. It is a long story I’m not doing this out of hatred, I love them with all my heart.
The journey started when I was young and naive, I slept with both women, One of them was Helen while the other was Taiye the first one I never trusted her and I expected something of this nature to happen but Taiye was my darling sweetheart, she was my first and I love her very much, I don’t know what happened but God knows the best.
When I was going to take them to Canada after becoming a permanent resident, I decided to bring them to Canada but the Canadian have had their own fair share of experience how people bring in child that is not theirs and lying.
So I was asked to run DNA test, and that anyone would do before becoming a citizen, especially in this circumstances so I submitted my sample and their sample too but surprisingly it comes back to be negative that both of them are not my children.
I was heartbroken, I couldn’t believe that it would happen, they had no other father apart from me.
I said I would do another test to challenge my faith so I took them to Canada and then when I got to Canada I was happy that they were with me but this time around I had three other children with Taiye.
I was compelled, DNA was very expensive, it was about $6,000 to DNA test in Vancouver; just to prove them wrong because it was hard to believe that Taiye would do such a thing.
And I loved her so much and she wasn’t promiscuous, she wouldn’t hurt me or hurt herself.
After three months, the result came out that I was not the biological father of Kelvin and Nosa but I was the biological father of my other children, I don’t want to mention their name for privacy reason.
So I consulted my wife Taiye “Please tell me why you did this to me”. She told me that “she’s one in a billion who have a special blood that the doctor doesn’t know what they are saying”.
But you know that DNA will exonerate you in some special investigative case. I was very confused at that moment and at the same time I was trusting God for his blessings.
I couldn’t deal with it alone, I had to call a family meeting on the subject matter that both children are not mine and she knows the fact but she lied to me. Now, let us look for their father because the children will be having some problems here every time because this is a spiritual thing, but Women are very deep, they hold on to their secret and take it to grave but I couldn’t hold on to mine because I’m a man.
I’m writing this because I believe my life story is an interesting one, I cannot be in this world fighting and then when I’m not here again I’ll still be fighting in my grave because some women will come out and bring children that have not been proven by DNA that they are my children and I do not want my biological children to have conflict when I leave this world and my wife who have been a beacon of hope to me, I do not want her to have any difficulty when I pass on.
No one is sure of forever but I do not want to take this for granted.
So, I therefore want to tell the general public that whatever you do to these two people, you are not doing it because they bare the same name with me or the same likeness for me but you are doing it at your own detriment.
So please these two individuals I love them so much but they are not my biological children, so do not transact any business with my company, with my personal relationship with you, or any other circumstances without verification from me or without looking at this disclaimer, you will be taking a very serious risk.
I am not doing this because of family problem or inheritance problem, we are the Binis and we follow tradition to the later, in our tradition we don’t take a child that is not our biological child but we can adopt, we do this because of our ancestors.
I am doing this for peace sake because I don’t want to leave any issue behind when I depart from this world.
I’ve 8 children from the same wife (Taiye) just the two (Nosa & Kelvin) that are not mine.
