Nigerian Facebook user slams DNA testing, gives reason why men should stop “contesting” paternity of their children



A Facebook user identified as Hugo Abuudo, has condemned Nigerian men who carry out DNA tests to ascertain their child’s paternity.

Abuudo stated that in the Igbo tradition, children who are born by the wife of a man are automatically his children, and hence should remain that way.

He added that DNA/paternity tests are destroying marriages and asked men to stop “contesting” the paternity of the children born by their wives.

“In Igbo custom and culture, every child born by a wife in a marriage automatically belongs to her husband. There is no contesting it.” the Facebook user wrote.

“DNA/paternity test is out to destroy the marriage institution as we know it. Most of our fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers were not actually the biological children of their fathers.”

“So sometimes I ask, what do you want to do with a paternity test when your own paternity is in doubt?”
