Oniyama Sets Record Straight, Rubbishes Allegation

Dr. C. Nelson Oniyama

Dr. C. Nelson Oniyama says he is constrained to publicly set the record straight in the wake of what he considered as a mounting smear campaign against him led by the mother of two purported children of his.

In a statement released over the weekend in Monrovia, Oniyama said the smear campaign which is being popularized in the media is merely intended to blackmail and injure his good name and business reputation thereby bringing him into public ridicule and disgrace.

He vowed to seek legal remedy against Ms. Almaz Kadiatu for this wrong in the court of competent jurisdiction.

Dr. Oniyama explained that he never raped Ms. Jalloh nor had any children with her as established by several DNA tests conducted in Liberia, Nigeria and the United States of America.

He said Ms. Jalloh’s frustration stems from the fact that he stopped support to her and the purported children of his following the results of the DNA test which proved that he is not their father.

He contended that if Ms. Jalloh claims that she was raped by him, or has children for him whom he has refused to support, the public smear campaign cannot give her redress as her allegations are criminal in nature and belong before a court of competent jurisdiction.

He encouraged her to take whatever grievances she has against him to the court rather than engaging in smear campaign.
