In what is turning out to be a protracted drama- albeit an interesting one- the first son of late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Mr. Debe Sylvester Odumegwu-Ojukw has admitted that his late father told him that Teny Harmana was his biological daughter.
Debe, told journalists in Enugu that there was no reason to doubt the paternity of Herman, as he (Debe) was aware of everything.
He said, “That is his daughter, I knew about her. The old man told me that Teny Herman was his daughter. I am his biggest and closest confidant; so there were so many things he laid bare to me which he never told others.”
The disinherited son added that Teny Herman’s mother hailed from the North.
“Her mother is from the North – Kaduna State precisely but I am not so sure of her first name now,” he said.
He said, “My father loved Teny just the same way he loved the northerners. Infact, Teny’s conception and birth was a hidden agenda he executed to demonstrate his love for the Northerners.”
