Rufus added that he had also created an enabling environment for them by providing each one a decent accommodation and car.
Describing the above fatherly commitment to them as 'reprehensible,' Rufus revealed that he has instructed his lawyer about making a will that excludes them from inheriting any of his properties and warned of severe consequences should they trespass.
The open letter read in part:
"I, Chief Rufus Abadi Osiri attention has been drawn to the subterranean, subversive, predatory and unwholesome activities of my children whose names are listed above to dispose my property in Yenagoa, Port Harcourt Lagos, Abuja etc, all in Nigeria.
"That I have trained them from Primary to University level and went further to create the enabling environment for them to have a flying start in life by providing each of them decent accommodation and car.

"They are within the age range of 27/40 years old, who are adults, capable of fending for themselves having created the enabling environment which is a stepping stone for them to start life on a sound footing. That the step they have taken is reprehensible.
"In order to ward off further incursion from my marauding children and secure the property, I have instructed my lawyer to write Will excluding them from inheriting any of my properties."

"This is sad! The problem must come from somewhere not disclosed; otherwise how can 7 children of same father come together against their father, particularly after the man played his fatherly role that's if what he said is true. Nothing was said about their mother."
Man allegedly disowned by father for failing to make money in Libya
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a young man had claimed that his father disowned him for failing to make money in Libya.
Narrating his story to Legit TV, the man named Endurance said:
"In 2017 when I finished my secondary school, my father told me that I should come and travel. When I got to Libya, there was war. Every day, they use to kill people in our camp. One night, they killed 820 people in our camp. They throw bomb in our camp, but God rescued me.
"I wanted to cross to Italy. I spent 21-hours on top of the sea. Before you, Libyan people came and now shoot the boat. Out of 180, only 14 of us survived it. And they took us to underground prison. From underground, they now deported us to Nigeria."
