[protege-discussion] duplicated relations

Hello all,
I have the folloing issue: 
i have an ontology with Class A,B,C
A has the folowng instances: 1,2,3
B has the folowng instances:4,5,6
C has the folowng instances:7,8,9
And B is Subclass of A.
I have a program in whitch i use jena.api and there are the folowng two circumstances:
i have some strings that are elements of the ontology (Classes or Individuals).
A)When is a Class i put a restriction on a property and make it subclass of the class with value a specific individual x.
 Lets say Class A
So the individuals 1,2,3,4,5,6 will have a relation with the individual x.
B)When is individual i make the same relation with the individual and the individual x.
Lets say the individual is the 4.
So i add a relation between 4 and x.
The problem i have untill now is that when i open the ontology with an ontology editor (Protege) there are individuals which have the relation with the individual x more than one time.
At the above example i'm seeing at the editor that individual 4 has a relation with individual x and individual x.
Do you have a proposition to solve this?
Thanks in advanced
