US-based couple fail DNA test for twins at Embassy

A US based Nigerian couple, Mr and Mrs Adenuga Shoyibo, failed a DNA test for five months old twins they presented at the US embassy as their children. Below is how Vanguard is reporting it
Controversy currently trails the parenthood of  five-month-old twins who were presented at the United States of America’s embassy by their supposed parents for the procurement of visa.
This follows result of a DNA test ordered by the embassy which reports showed that the couple were not the biological parents of the twins as claimed.
Consequently, the couple have been arrested and are being interrogated at the Special Fraud Unit, SFU Milverton, for alleged child-trafficking.
Although investigation, according to the unit, had not been concluded, there were indication that the children could have been bought for N1.8 million somewhere in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Following the discovery, the passport of the supposed father, Mr Adenuga Shoyibo, a Nigerian based in America has been seized pending the outcome of the investigation.

But Soyibo, who claimed to be a USA citizen, maintained that the children were theirs, disclosing  that the twins came at a traditional home in Port Harcourt, 15  years after they got married.

He further revealed  that he paid N1.8 million to the trado-medical practitioner for the herbs administered to his wife which eventually led to her conception.

But in the course of investigation, Commissioner of Police in charge of the unit, Mr Tunde Ogunsaki, was said to have detailed some policemen to accompany Elizabeth to the trado medical home where she claimed the babies were delivered,with a view to ascertaining her claim.

The CP said: “During investigation, detectives travelled to Port-Harcourt, Rivers State where the woman claimed she gave birth to the twins in a private small house.  But on reaching  Port-Harcourt, the woman claimed she could no longer locate the place, she also stated that she had no antenatal record anywhere as she did not attend any.

“Adenuga Soyibo, who claimed to be the father of the twins, on his own part, said he was also given local herbs that boosted his sperm count that produced the babies.

Both suspects claimed they could no longer trace the woman whom they paid the N1.8 million for the local herbs for the babies delivery. They also could not produce anyone who knew about the conception and the subsequent delivery of the babies.”

Mr Soyibo, however, said he met the woman, one Mrs Okoro, last year, adding that when the delivery date was near, he arrived the country November 19, 2012 and four days  later his wife travelled to Port Harcourt where she was delivered same day and returned to their Ikorodu abode the following day.

He further stated that he did not go to Port Harcourt with his wife, saying he was too tired because of the journey.

Currently, Soyibo’s travelling documents have been seized pending the outcome of investigation. But the couple were released on bail, some days back, and advised to be visiting for further interrogation.

It's either this man was scammed by the woman or both of them have a lot more to tell. The fact that he sat his ass down in Yankee during the time his wife was preggy doesn't mean he shouldn't have verified ante natal visits, morning sickness, etc. Why go all the way to PH to deliver? Something doesn't add up jare.

U neva see anything sef. There are even factories where men impregnate women and sell. The market is hot. IVF is beyond the reach of many and so mago mago preggers don full town. Most of them have inferTility issues caused by the men (azospermia tinz) and so hubby go support

Anonymous said...

I cant imagine what these couple will be going tru right now,my prayer for you right now is that if you are really the biological parents or not,remember they are twins so therefore they are not easy to be toed with,God would use this as a point of contact to remember you in what you might be going tru right now ;and to those out there seeking for the fruit of the womb,as He answer hannah so shall it answer everyone of you in jesus name.God i thank you for mine and for all mothers out there cos his not by our power,thank you LORD.

I know.. Most childless couples do this. And it is always from either Abia State or PHC. My uncle's wife did this too! After almost 20 years of marriage without a child, she pretended to be pregnant. She fooled everyone including her own mother.. I confided in her husband whom i thought she was also fooling but he assured me that he was aware of it. when she was 'due', she travelled to PHC and came back with triplets! She even went to the church to testify.. Everyone was praising God for the miracle. But God cannot be mocked.. I don't know why they couldn't just go through the legal adoption process.

Meanwhile, abia state and port Harcourt are famous for this business!

Na wa oh,its either they stole or adopted the babies. If they adopted,they would have said they truth. Na thunder go fire them if they stole them,which its actually turning out 2b. If she was pregnant truly,and 1st issue,the man didn't accompany her "just because he was ordinarily tired from journey"?owu ya.smh. Which man won't want 2 go with his wife 4 a baby they even paid 1.8m 4?smh.I wish am the lawyer 2 handle this case,they will rot in prison 4 cookn up such lies because its only a criminal that can do such. So did d woman give birth by herself?weren't there any1 that helped her give birth?or she pulled out the baby herself 4rm her womb and did the cutting herself?since they are trying to say she didn't go to hospital and no1 saw her deliver or even pregnant. Don't they have neighbors? Home and abroad?its a simple case,the police should just investigate on stolen twins in the "country" cos it might actually not be in port harcourt, the port harcourt they called might just be so the police won't find anything.post my comment.

Really, this is no news. Almost fell into this very trap/predicament last year. Bin married for 5yrs now n waiting on God. My hussy's Oga @ the top called him and more like ordered him dat we should both go to PH to see one 'Trado-'matron' whom he gave us her contact n all dat she would start treating us with herbs for like 2-3 months and thereafter we'd be preggers. Buh on further inquiry by me with Oga's wife , she told me dat usually the pregnancy will not show buh just a little bulge n dat if we go to the hospital for a scan, dey won't see anytin. Said dat i would have to deliver at her centre abi na clinic there in PH and the herbs will cost 500k while the delivery 300kHussy n I were not comfortable with the idea @ all. 'Which kind pikin be dat?' We had to look for several excuses to give dem . Up till today Oga @ the top is ever so hostile to hussy n does not relate wit him bcos we dint go.
So really, I'm not suprised by this. It only makes the picture clearer. Plenty plenty women have done dis here in abj. Not new at all
But we choose to wait for our own special God given bundle. Not easy thou but God will prove his magnificence soon. Dt I biliv.

U people shuld reason like intellects pls. If the couple were not confident the kids were theirs they definitely won't av gone for a DNA test. I've heard stories like dat in portharcourt where they give you herbs and tummy starts to grow, you'd believe u r pregnant and they tell you to come back after 9months. The woman MIGHT be guilty but the husband is sure innocent. Pls reason before commenting. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

i stand to be corrected pls. Is it not possible that they adopted the children, or is adoption not legal? And if it is legal as i thought, and they failed to posit it that way, rather as their own blood children, then this is where I doubt whether they are couple at all. I choose to call them business partners pls. God knows!

For all those critics is an India adage which says, "May I not criticize my neighbour until I walk in his mocassin".
"A drowning man will catch at a straw". Childless couples can go to any length - spiritual, traditional and even IVF, BUT God dispenses. While groping in darkness they may attempt any solution proferred to them, one of which is the Port Harcourt herbal home.
Do you blame couples who are stigmatized and jeered as barren?
Now that its obvious on the paternity test, the couple can formalise the adoption so that the twins can have what their "parent" may not have given.



Anonymous said...

Illegal adoption. Its very common in Phc and I have seen many women that has taken this path. They take herbs and pretend to be preggy while the matron arranges for teenage girls who are either kidnapped from their villages or lured into it. Boys or men are recruited to sleep and impregnate these teenagers and upon delivery are made to sign off these babies with sometimes tokens of N50,000 or less and they are handed over to the highest bidder like the couple in question. This is what the couple had done. they shd stop the crap that its their biological babies. Its rampant in Phc (Oyigbo) and Abia State (Aba).
