As the family of late Mr. Tunji Okusanya Snr, Managing Director, MIC Funeral Services, battles to get over the tragedy that befell them by the ill-fated Associated Airlines plane crash that killed him, his first son and four of his workers, some unknown women have surfaced in the family claiming to have children for the deceased Okusanya Snr.
According to Leadership Newspaper, it gathered reliably from members of the family that sought anonymity that the women and children were never introduced to other members of the family by the late Okusanya.
The family member said following the demise of the philanthropic director of the foremost undertaking company in the country, Magbamowo Industrial Company (M.I.C.), four other women apart from his legitimate wives have showed up as his wives.
“I am surprised because he did not tell or show the wives and children to his friends and family members as it has turned out to be. But such an incidence cannot be ruled out considering the status of the MIC boss.
“He lived a larger than life lifestyle. Women chase such people who are successful, even if they do not chase the women. It is not a crime to have many children and we do not count children in Africa,” said a close family member.
He urged the senior family members to conduct DNA test on the children if they doubt their paternity.
It was learnt that with the present development, the total number of children fathered by Okusanya outside his matrimonial home and the ones that are known to the family member stands at nine children, including a two-month-old baby.
This revelation took many of his family members by surprise as none of them has admitted being aware of the existence of other women and children.
