Delta businessman denies paternity of children from wife

Chief Johnbull Ejovi, Thursday said he has no children with his wife, Mrs Emily Ejovi.

Ejovi in a chat with our Correspondent, said: “I have been married to my wife without children from her for me.

“Sometime ago, she approached me that we should go for sorrogate since age was not on her side, which I consented to but my sperm was not at anytime 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 have 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.”

Effort made to reach the wife, Mrs Emily Ejovi for comment on the matter proved abortive as at press time. (Ndokwa Reporters)
