Nigerian actor, Samuel Ajibola has opened up that he sued a TikTok user who questioned his son’s paternity.

He made the revelation during a recent interview on Channels Television.

Recall that his son was ridiculed after he posted his photo on social media.

Many had claimed that the baby could have been fathered by Olusegun Obasanjo, the former Nigerian president due to the striking resemblance.

Explaining why he took legal action against the Tiktoker, he said: “Well, it is no new news that Nigerians are very opinionated people and even in their opinions, a lot of those opinions come from misinformed positions. The picture that caused the stir was a picture of me and my wife with the former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.”

“Of whom I am the youth ambassador to the youth development center of the Olusegun Obasanjo presidential library. So I have a relationship with him, he is a huge mentor in my life and so from time to time, I visit him. In one of those cases, I just had my son so I took him to see him.

“Then people started saying my wife was a cheat, then moved to that he was the true father of my son which I would not deny,  my son does look like him in that picture. It is a still picture, a second, it is a moment in which my son was just waking up from sleep when we arrived and he had those eye bags.

“Those eye bags made him look like the former president and people were all out claiming that they were very sure that the former president was the through father of my son. As someone who has been in the industry for over thirty years, and I started acting as a young child actor. I have seen it all and I understand that sometimes people always talk.

“Sometimes you just need to let it go but because that issue was beginning to linger for two years. As a man who is married and responsible, I had to stand up for my wife and my son. It got to a point that I knew that I had to take legal action to make people understand that yes you may have opinions but you do not necessarily have to bring them to public light and be insensitive to whoever is at the other end of the backlash.

“If it was them in that shoe, how would they feel? But this is something I have talked about with my wife and I tell her that these are the things that come with being in the industry so we were prepared already. But we needed to use somebody as a scapegoat and that is the reason why we decided to take legal action.”
