All Kudirat Abiola’s seven children pass DNA test
By Olalekan Adetayo
Monday, 15 Oct 2007
All the seven children of the late Kudirat, the second wife of the late
Chief M. K. O. Abiola, have passed the compulsory DNA test required to
ascertain the paternity of the 113 children believed to have been
fathered by the business mogul.
The children are Yusau Olalekan, Hafsat Olaronke, Jamiu Abiodun, Abdul
Mumuni, Hadi, Moriam and Khafila.
Under the late Abiola’s Will, dated October 25, 1989, those claiming
to be his children were required to prove paternity as one of the
conditions to qualify as beneficiaries of his estate. This was done by DNA
Five of the children of Kudirat — Yusau Olalekan, Hafsat Olaronke,
Jamiu Abiodun, Abdul Mumuni, and Hadi — had alongside 37 others passed
the DNA test.
Moriam and Khafila were said to be in the United States when the
doctors who conducted the test came to Nigeria.
The administrators of the Will had given all the children, who were yet
to undergo the DNA test, and other children who believed that they
might be entitled to the politician‘s estate till October 1, 2007 to
contact them in either the United Kingdom or Nigeria.
Our correspondent exclusively gathered on Sunday that Moriam and
Khafila underwent the test in England on September 21. Their results were
released to the Abiola family by the estate’s lawyer, Kendall Freeman.
According to the results dated October 9 and signed by a senior
scientist, Amber James, the late politician was said to be ‘more than one
million times more likely to be the father’ of the two children.
A copy of the results obtained on Sunday reads, ”Evidence for
statements: A series of genetic tests, called STR DNA Profiles, have been
performed on the samples provided by the above-named individuals.
“The identities of the originators of the samples received for
testing are based on the information supplied with the sample. Each test
analyses a part of the human DNA that is known to have different forms in
“Statements: On the basis of DNA analysis using at least 15 separate
DNA STR profile tests, the following statements can be made:
“Chief M.K.O. Abiola’s DNA STR profile has at least one DNA STR
type in common with the DNA STR profile of Khafila/Moriam Abiola in each
of the tests analysed.
“Chief M.K.O. Abiola is more than one million times more likely to be
the father of the child presented than an unrelated individual. This
corresponds to a relative chance of paternity of more than 99.999 per
“Summary: This result is very strong evidence of paternity.”
According to the earlier results made available by the administrator of
the late Abiola’s estate, Timothy Daniel, of the 113 children who
claimed that the late politician was their father, 25 failed the test.
Fifteen were not qualified to benefit from the estate while two were
Six other children, comprising the five the late politician had through
his first wife Simbiat — Kola, Deji, Agbo, Bolaji, and Wura — as
well as Adunola born by Sekinat Shade, were exempted from the test. They
were described as qualifying children specifically identified in the
Kudirat was killed on June 4, 1996 by suspected agents of the late Gen.
Sani Abacha’s military junta at the height of her struggle for the
actualisation of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election
believed to have been won by her husband.
Abiola, who was detained for declaring himself President, died in
incarceration on July 8, 1998.
