Blood tests revealed only 55 of my father’s acclaimed children are actually his – MKO Abiola’s son reveals

The late politician’s son revealed that the number of children his father had was reduced to 55 after blood tests were carried out.

Abdulmumuni Abiola, son of famous late politician and winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola, has opened up on issues of paternity fraud that ensued after his father’s death.

The late politician’s son unraveled this while speaking on several issues on the latest episode of the MIC ON Podcast with Seun Okinbaloye.

Abdulmumuni said that although 40 wives were recorded on his father’s will, some of his partners were not captured in the legal document.

It is a popular believe that the late Abiola fathered over 100 children. However, Abdulmumuni said the family is smaller compared to public speculations.

He said that even though his father was paying the school fees of 103 children while he was alive, blood tests conducted revealed that only 55 were his biological children.

“You know, the Abiola family, we are not that much because people are thinking we’re a lot. We are only 55,” he began.

“They were 40 wives according to the will but I think they were 40 something though. I think there are some wives that were not there at the end but there were 40 wives.

“Most of the wives had maybe one or two for my dad not everyone… so when my father was alive, he was paying for 103 children to go to school but like I said, not all of them were his so after the blood test, we happened to be 55 which is actually a manageable number if you’re in a country of 220 million people.

“You would think my father was enjoying himself but apparently he wasn’t enjoying himself that much,” he said.
