I nearly committed suicide after DNA test results – Odartey Lamptey “When I was informed that the [three] children were not mine, I know how I felt….. I nearly committed suicide,” – Odartey Lamptey.



 
Ex-Ghana
international, Nii Odartey Lamptey has shockingly revealed that he
nearly committed suicide after a DNA test proved that his supposed three
children were not biological.

The 42-year-old has been involved in a legal tussle with ex-wife, Gloria Appiah, after the latter filed for a divorce in court demanding for 50% of the ex-footballer’s assests.

However, on Wednesday, an Accra High Court ruled in favour of Odartey Lamptey, quashing his ex-wife’s suit.
Gloria Appiah
was fighting to claim half of Odartey’ assets, despite the fact that a
DNA test conducted in 2013 proved the ex-couple’s three children were
not fathered by the former Black Stars midfielder.
She was subsequently ordered to vacate the ex-footballer’s 7-bedroom apartment in East Legon within 30 working days.
Odartey Lamptey
has now revealed that getting to know that his supposed three children
were not of his blood nearly led him into committing suicide.

“When
I was informed that the [three] children were not mine, I know how I
felt. Playing the role of a father to children I thought were mine for
21 years and realizing otherwise later, I nearly committed suicide. God
gave me renewed energy and courage to withstand these pains and today, I
can say I have gotten over them all,”
he told starrsportsgh.com following the outcome of the law suit.

“And
today, with the final judgement, I thank God that my properties, my
school and others I have kept them. She can take the little awarded her.
Today the divorce has been granted and that burden that was on me is
gone. Now, I’m a free and happy man, ready to start life again.” 

Odartey Lamptey played for the Black Stars in the 1990s, and was part of Ghana’s squad at the 1992 Olympics.
