A prominent Chief in Delta State, Johnbull Ejovi, on Thursday said he is not the father of the two children by his wife, Mrs Emily Ejovi.
Chief Johnbull Ejovi made this disclosure while fielding questions from journalists, saying that: “I have been married to my wife without children from her for me.
“Sometime ago, she approached me that we should go for surrogate since age was not on her side, which I consented to but my sperm was not at any time collected for that purpose.
“I have grown up children before I married Emily. Today, I am a grandfather.”
Meanwhile, Ejovi in an adversarial, titled legal notice/disclaimer signed by him published 25th September, said; “myself and my wife Emily Ejovi have no children together.
“The children she purportedly has either by adoption or surrogacy who she named Ejovi Oromena Mayjane and Ejovi Oghenemaro Marvel or any other name are not my children and so cannot be bearing my name.
“I am not the father of these children as I was not the donor of the sperm and also did not sign any adoption papers, nor was my wife ever pregnant to my knowledge.”
Efforts made to reach the wife, Mrs Emily Ejovi for comment on the matter proved abortive as at press time.
