According to reports, Ajibola’s family faced cyberbullying when he posted images of his family’s visit to Obasanjo on social media in 2022.

Netizens pointed out that his son shares a “striking resemblance” with the former Nigerian leader.

In a recent interview with Channels TV, the actor responded to cyberbullying by saying netizens’ claims that Obasanjo was the “true father” of his son were “misinformed.”

He stated, “The photo of me and my wife with the previous President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, sparked controversy.

“I serve as the Youth Ambassador for the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library’s Youth Development Centre. So I am in a relationship with him. He is a significant mentor in my life.

And so from time to time, I visit him. After I had my son, I took him there to see him. And people started assuming things. They said, ‘Okay, my wife was a secretary to the former President.’ It moved from that to, ‘Oh! He [Obasanjo] is the true father’ of my son.

“I won’t deny it, I’m saying this live on air. In that picture, my son does look like him there. But there are circumstances around it. And it’s still a picture. It’s a still picture. It’s a second. It’s a moment of which my son was just waking up from sleep when we arrived. So he was just booting and he had those eyebags. Those eyebags made him look like the former President. And people were claiming as if they were 100 per cent sure that the former President was the true father of my son.”
