Gowon accepts love child after 48 years

After 48 years of paternity dispute, former military Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, rtd., has finally accepted paternity of a love child with the late public relations expert, Princess Edith Ike Okongwu.

The son, Musa, who returned to Nigeria towards the end of last year, after about 23 years in a United States prison, was acknowledged by Gen. Gowon upon the report of a conclusive DNA test.

The paternity dispute was the subject of a legal action that reached the Supreme Court in Nigeria, which Okongwu won.

Musa was arrested by United States law enforcement officials in Dallas on the charge of importing heroin into that country and eventually sentenced to 27 years in prison.

He was only released last November on compassionate ground and good behaviour.

In 2003, while in US custody he lost his mother, a leading socialite in Nigeria, who was also a one-time public relations manager of Guinness Nigeria Plc.

In acknowledging Musa as his son in a statement issued yesterday, Gen. Gowon, now 81 nevertheless, asked for privacy after a very difficult period.

He said: “Following years of doubts and speculation, a DNA test was recently conducted to ascertain the paternity of Musa Gowon, who recently returned to the country.”

The results of the tests were conclusive, and they confirm his paternity. We, the family, are working to assist in his rehabilitation following a very difficult period in his life.”

As we look forward to the future with faith in God, we request that our privacy be respected.”
