A young Nigerian man has taken to Facebook to express his shock and disappointment after finding out his parents hid his twin brother from him since birth.
Emmanuel Rowland, pictured right, said he was heartbroken as he thought he was an only child, not knowing he had a twin brother who was taken by his father after their birth because his parents decided to seperate.
According to Emmanuel, he found out about his twin brother in August 2018, after his father had called to inform him. The pair reunited after 21 years and Emmanuel now refers to his brother as the best twin brother in the world. Read his post on Facebook below;
