A man, Stephen Moses, has expressed shock after paternity tests disclosed that he is not the biological father of his two-year-old son.

He said he had not been able to recover from the shocking revelation of his supposed child having a sickle cell genotype, when he has an AA genotype while his wife is AS.

Moses said that he felt the need to confirm the boy’s paternity following the child’s several battles with sickle cell.

He revealed this while appearing on a popular television programme, saying two different tests confirmed that he is not the biological father of the boy, Teri-Oluwa.

In several tweets on his X handle on Monday where he tagged a now-viral video of the court session, Moses wrote, “I am still in awe of how we got here. We got married precisely May 21, 2016. A year down the line she got pregnant and gave birth on her birthday November 8, 2018.

“The first crisis the baby had, we spent thousands in hospital and that’s when we first discovered he was SS.


“At this point, I was confused. She first told me it was the enemy that was doing us through the boy. I didn’t believe and at the same time, I didn’t argue with her. I started doing my research to see if it was possible for AA + AS to produce SS.”

According to him, before the paternity was proven, his in-laws arrested him claiming he had not been providing upkeep for the child.

On the possibility of the child being swapped at birth, Moses said it was slim as he was present in the labour room during the birth.

While reacting, the wife said Moses’ story was true but disagreed with the results.

In her defence, she said that Moses did not discuss with her before carrying out the DNA test.

She said, “All that is said is true but when we were first diagnosed, why couldn’t he tell me that we should go for DNA? And meanwhile, he didn’t even come out straight that he wanted to do a DNA test. He started misbehaving in the house and sometimes he wouldn’t even come home until my brother said I should let him know whenever my husband was around.

“One day he was around and my brother came and that was when he said what was happening because I didn’t know anything. So, he told me that his father dreamt that he was nursing another man’s child and that was the excuse he gave me that day and it went on like that.”
