I nearly committed suicide after DNA result – Odartey Lamptey

Ex-Ghana international, Nii Odartey Lamptey has finally revealed what he wanted to do after being told that the three children he fathered for 21 years were not his.

In 2013, reports emerged that DNA tests had uncovered the fact that Lamptey’s three children with now ex-wife Gloria were not indeed fathered by the former World’s best juvenile player.

After suspecting the wife of infidelity, the former midfielder, who represented Ghana at the 1992, 1994 and 1996 African Nations Cup tournaments, secretly took samples from the three children and did a DNA test, which reportedly revealed that none of three girls were fathered by him.

An Accra High Court on Wednesday declared Gloria Appiah as officially an ex-wife to former Anderletch midfielder.

And Odartey has finally broken silence on what came to mind when he was first told about the DNA test results.

“I’m the only one who knows how I felt when I was told of the results”, Odartey told Starr FM following the ruling.

“Initially, I had resolved to hang myself and end it all but later on, God strengthened me and it appeared like nothing had happened”,

“I will advice all me never to take their life because with God, all things are possible”,

“I never thought I could have the courage to withstand this”. He added.

An Accra High Court on Wednesday declared Gloria Appiah as officially an ex-wife to former Anderletch midfielder.

Gloria failed in an attempt to gain 50% share of his assets after an Accra High Court ruled that having three children out of wedlock is an “adulterous” life.

At the Court Complex in Accra, Justice Cecilia Don-Chebe Agbevey put finality to the bitter divorce battle between the estranged lovers which had lingered on since 2013.

During the court sitting, Gloria Appiah’s motion to be awarded half of each of the ex-footballer’s properties was completed quashed.

She has however been allocated Nii Lamptey’s property located at Dome as he had proposed.

The estranged wife has also been ordered to vacate Nii Odartey Lamptey’s 7-bedroom apartment in East Legon within 30 days.
