This is a sad letter sent in by a reader, Bayo, an international businessman who discovered that the three children he has always called his own are not his after a DNA test proved otherwise.

"My name is Bayo, an international businessman who has been married for twelve years with three lovely children; or children I thought were mine. I thought I had a perfect marriage with Kike but I have just discovered that even the best woman could turn out to be the deadliest serpent.

I had no reason to believe that Kike could have cheated on me until I got a disturbing email from a woman I have never known, telling me to conduct a DNA test on my children to ascertain they were mine because my wife had been cheating on me right from the day we were married.

I could not believe what I saw but I decided to act without informing my wife or anyone about the mail. On my last trip to the United States of America in December, I took the three children along and conducted the test and got the shock of my life.

It turned out that none of the children are mine. I have been unable to disclose this to anyone, not even my wife because I do not want her to have a ready defence when I take my action. Most importantly, I do not want the kids to know they are not mine because I love them with my life and would not give them up for anything in this world.

How do I go about handling this issue?


The teaser for the day was:

What would you do if you realise your three children are not yours after all?

How Nigeria voted:

24% - I will send my wife away and keep the kids

20% - I will make sure my wife returns the kids to their father

22% - I will keep it as a family secret

33% - That will be the end of the marriage
