Former Head of Nigerian General Yakubu Gowon [retd] has finally acknowledged that Jack Musa Gowon is his son following DNA tests.
General Gowon was the head of the Military Government, during the Nigerian civil war that saw the genocide of millions of Biafrans.
48-year-old Jack returned to Nigeria after serving out a 20-year imprisonment in the United States and was granted pardon by the President Barak Obama administration.
A statement issued by Gowon himself read:
Like father, like son
“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.
Many Igbo have accused Gowon of hypocrisy in having sexual relationship with an Igbo woman, Miss Edith Ike, (later married to Mr. Okongwu), while he was slaughtering and starving to death millions of the Igbos during the war.
