Nigerian actor, Samuel Ajibola popularly known as Spiff and his wife, Sandra Ajibola have sued a blogger for defamation of character.
The couple dragged him to court over his claim that their son’s biological father is former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Samuel, fondly known for his role on family comedy series, ‘The Johnsons’ shared the legal letter on his Instagram page on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023.
In addressing the allegations of Obasanjo being the father of his son which started making rounds shortly after he left the TV show, the actor said he had been analyzing the situation in order to come up with the best possible solution.
Although, the blogger apologized and deleted the post from social media, Spiff and his wife said the damage had been done already.
Spiff wrote; “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 the 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 this case of @gossipbobo , whom 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.”
