""I have never seen my father. I don't know anyone from my father's family. I don't think he knows I exist.

Paul said they had him out of wedlock when his mum was aged around 20 and that her British parents had objected to their union. The Briton believes his dad is Yoruba and left after his studies after being allegedly denied the right to go back to Nigeria with his son.

The structural consultant resident in Surrey, England, said he never met his dad as his mother handed him to an orphanage three weeks after he was born as pregnancy outside wedlock in 1953 was considered shameful within Catholic families.
