Reacting to the poster on the microblogging site, Nairaland, one Ogiame claimed that the deceased’s wife had affairs with several people in her community. He however did not provide any proof.

Another user, Namaster wrote, “Someone should advise the family to do a DNA test on the four kids. Chances are at least two of them do not belong to the dead man.
