Nollywood actor Sam Ajibola has sued a blogger for claiming that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is the father of his newborn son.
Ajibola, who is popularly known as Spiff in “The Johnsons”, has initiated legal proceedings against a Tiktoker as well as Tunde Ednut for publishing derogatory posts about his wife, son and ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The TikToker, Ifeanyi Aniekwe @gossipbobo, had published a photo of Spiff, his wife, and son with the ex-Nigerian president alongside a caption that suggestively questioned the paternity of Spiff’s son.
The blogger had written, “Obasanjo and his Secretary’s baby boy.”
Tunde Ednut thereafter shared the post on his Instagram page, and it received some derogatory comments as well.
Reacting to the post, Sam said he is hurt by it as that narrative has gone on for too long.
He shared a DM Ifeanyi sent to his wife apologizing for the post and stating he had deleted it from his page and had also reached out to Tunde Ednut to delete same as well.
The actor shared a screenshot of his wife’s response to Ifeanyi on Instagram, where she stated that while she appreciated his apology, he had defamed her character.
Sam stated that a national security advisor, a Magistrate of the Supreme Court and his wife’s legal advisor are on top of the matter as they have found few scapegoats to use in warning others to stay away.
He wrote, “Trouble dey sleep, Yanga go wake am.
“Wetin him dey find? Palava him dey find.
“Cat dey sleep, rat go bite his tail.
“Wetin him dey find? Na Palava him go get..So, contrary to many opinions as to why I haven’t come out to clear the air on the defamation of my wife’s character on this issue, you will all please bear with me as I needed some real good time to properly analyze all aspects of it and come up with a best solution to all of these bickerings that has been happening since I announced my wife to the world.
“This Harrasment has continued from my engagement news where they began with false allegations that my wife was older than I am and was controlling my decisions like leaving The Johnsons, to blatant lies that she was called my class captain, and now for over a year these trolls have further bear false witness to the point where they question my wife’s unquestionable fidelity to me, and ultimately bullying my innocent son who they have planned to grow and meet these false allegations.
“This is the very reason why a lot of famous and prestigious people crave for private lives. It is because lately, quite a number of young people on social media (as we have observed from the comments and all) are mostly dysfunctional and insensitive youths with confidence in their false witness when they display their disrespect for others in societies where there is a huge lacuna of societal leadership.
“This clearly, as in the case of @gossipbobo, who in sharing his misinformed opinion about our lives in public to the detriment of their mental health, relates to the almost impossible art of most Nigerians who can easily die from not “minding their own business.
“Honestly, I’m hurt and for the sake of being a proper boy from the streets of Surulere, I know how to find justice there, but for the same of my emotional maturity, I have found more decent and honourable ways to handle this lingering issue, from the various powers I know in the Judicial/security sector.
“As we speak a national security advisor, a Magistrate of the supreme court and my wife’s legal advisor are on top of the matter. Thankfully, we have found a few scapegoats to use in warning others to stay away.”
